Apple announces Final Cut Pro X
It was a long time coming, but Apple has finally announced Final Cut Pro X. Announced at NAB, the new version offers whole new levels of compatibility with Apple’s rapidly evolving operating system.
Apple says Final Cut Pro X has been rewritten from the ground up, with support for 64-bit, a user-interface redesign, and a whole host of new features. The software takes advantage of core Mac OS X features like Cocoa, Core Animation, Open CL, and Grand Central Dispatch to speed up and fine-tune performance.
In addition, it now support up-and-coming 4k resolutions, magnetic timelines, and background rendering. Still no BluRay support, but that goes hand-in-hand with Apple’s continue insistence on Online Video support.
It’ll be available in the new Mac App Store for $299 in June.
