Was it confirmed they were part of the development team?

No. If you read an email from Steve Jobs himself, he confirms that the employees laid off were from support. I'm pretty sure Final Cut Pro is still going. A LOT of people use Final Cut. I seriously doubt it's going anywhere.

That is what I thought I read it was support not so much development. I agree I don't think it is going anywhere either... :)

Sorry guys but its not true the 40 guys were from support. Some of them were from development and some QA. At least guys working with Color dev & QA were cut as well as guys from actual FCP team. Don't know about the rest...

Final Cut is creeping slowly into the market more and more these days. It's gaining in popularity, and shrinking the Avid userbase. I doubt it will be discontinued anytime soon.

Sorry mate but FCP or FCS has done its creeping into the market and the flow has changed. Avid is gaining back the market share it lost to FCP. Don't know about Premier but I've hear its doing better market share wise also. Regarding FCP, there is really problem within the development. FCP is falling behind regarding the features and speed. FCP is getting old and really doesn't represent the innovation it did 3-5 years ago. FCP needs a major boost if it intends to stay as a viable editing solution.

Hi guys.
Help me understand what could be the problem of continual errors final cut server:
"ERROR: E_RESTART
Server was either shut down or terminated unexpectedly. "
You receive this error is almost constant.
Also on the proxy server indicated that simultaneously encode in 24 threads. But why is the maximum that I could see it was 3-4 stream. How to overcome this error?
