    I haven't seen this posted yet, so I thought I'd make my own post. :)


    I smell Final Cut Pro 4 :) and most likely something geared more towards the broadcast industry, since NAB is the National Association of Broadcasters. :)

    discuss :)

    It would be nice to see FCP4, really been waiting for an upgrade that would incorporate all or even some of the companies Apple's bought over the recent year or so.

    Sounds like the perfect opportunity. :D

    No. The iPod was released during an "Apple Event."

    This is a convention for people in the broadcast business, such as TV stations, radio, etc. Think of it as similar to MacWorld, but full of broadcaster geeks. :)

    Yeah, I have a feeling Final Cut Pro 4 will have a ton of new stuff from the acquistions Apple has made. Especially text effects and stuff.

    Is FCP 3 cocoa or is it still carbon? If Final Cut Pro 4 were to be cocoa, I'm sure that'd speed things up.

    I'm just hoping for some sort of sequencer. I normally use Digital Performer for recording (which was just announced to ship next month :) ), but right now, with my old PowerMac G3, i can't use my MOTU 24i for recording. Mainly because my system is dying a slow a death, my firewire ports are slowly going, my USB ports are dying, etc. I just need some sort of sequencer to finish up some songs and stuff.
