    In what is surely a release timed (at least partially) to reassure pro users that Apple is still paying attention to them, the company has released updates to its Final Cut Pro X, Motion, Compressor and MainStage apps. Earlier today, Apple announced that it was discontinuing Aperture, its pro photo editing app, in favor of the Photos app in the upcoming OS X Yosemite release. Read More

    New Final Cut Pro Is Real, And It's Spectacular (And It's Expected Spring 2011)

    Because it seems like it’s Apple rumor day I’d thought I’d throw my (very small) hat in the ring. More than a year has passed since Final Cut Pro’s last release and we’ve seen two reported Steve Jobs emails talking up a product that many thought Apple had given up on (“Stay tuned and buckle up.” and “Next release will be awesome.”) but… Read More

  • Rumormongering: Is Apple dumping Final Cut Pro, other pro apps?

    [photopress:finalcutexpress.jpg,full,center] Who loves Apple rumors? You love Apple rumors! And this one’s a big-un. There’s some speculation around certain unnamed video pro forums that Apple is dumping its pro apps, like Final Cut Pro and Aperture, to focus more on the consumer market. This is hardly surprising.
