“Apple is currently on track to deliver the long-awaited new version of Final Cut Pro at this year’s National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) trade show, sources report. NAB takes place April 14-19, although Apple generally makes its show-related announcements on the Sunday prior to the opening of the exhibit floor, which falls on April 15 this year,” Ryan Katz reports for Think Secret.
Katz reports, “Originally scheduled for release at last year’s NAB, Final Cut Pro 6’s one-year delay has enabled developers to expand the software’s original feature set, including the incorporation of many Leopard-dependent technologies, sources say. For example, Leopard’s powerful Core Animation technology will be employed to power Final Cut Pro 6’s real-time video editing engine.”
“Final Cut Pro 6’s delay was caused primarily by Apple’s need to shift developers from the Final Cut Pro team to the Aperture team to bolster that product’s code, which saw dramatic improvements with last year’s Aperture 1.5 update,” Katz reports.
