Final Cut Pro X Coming To The Mac App Store – June 2011

The rumor mill has been doing overtime waiting for Apple’s next installment of Final Cut Pro. Last night, we were all sated. At the NAB in Las Vegas Apple’s Chief Architect of Video Applications, Randy Ubilos went full pelt demonstrating the beta version. It has a similar look and feel to iMovie and will be shipped with 64-bit support to make use of more than 4GB of RAM and the facility to handle 4K clips on 8-core editing rigs. This latest version will render in the background allowing the user to edit on the fly, much like iMovie.

We’re waiting to get more information directly from Apple and will be updating this post, check back for that.
