A real and spectacular update to Final Cut Pro is coming this spring, according to video editors who previewed the new software.
TechCrunch reports that a small group of video editors were invited to Apple's campus in order to preview the new version. Apparently it's the "biggest overhaul to Final Cut Pro since the original version was created over 10 years ago" and they wanted "pro" feedback.
One source described the new release as encompassing everything from low level architectural changes to a complete redesign of the user interface. It’s safe to say the newest version will be 64 bit as that's what users have clamored the most for. Early reports from people who have demo’d the new Final Cut Pro (FCP 8?) say that the changes are "dramatic and ambitious" and should alleviate concerns that Apple has shifted its video editing focus from the professional to the consumer space, shutting down work on FCP.
TechCrunch theorizes that Apple could look to launch the software around the time of the National Association of Broadcaster conference (April 9 – 14).
