    ProVideoCoalition claims to have heard rumors that Apple is planning to use the Final Cut Pro User Group SuperMeet to announce the next version of Final Cut Pro.
    The post goes on to talk about other sponsors including Avid that have had their sponsorship canceled for the event.

    Apple has been known to be prepping a new version of Final Cut Pro and according to early reports the changes were described as "dramatic and ambitious". While the SuperMeet seems a strange venue for Apple to announce a new product, Apple has been taking a somewhat unusual approach to promoting and previewing this product. Earlier this year, Apple invited individuals including Final Cut Pro author Larry Jordon to a hands on. Jordan describes what he can of the preview meeting:
    The 2011 NAB also kicks off starting on April 9th and runs until April 14th.

    I'm hoping for new imacs too. And mini's. I just got a promotion at work and approval from the wife to pretty much buy whatever mac I want. Except for the high end mac pro.

    So many things that FCP / FCS can improve upon here - they need the equivalent of Adobe's Mercury Engine, leveraging Grand Central, QTX, and a full Cocoa build for all the FCS apps...

    At present we have to re-encode a lot of our footage (7D / Minicam etc), and you don't need to do that in Premiere, it just plays on the timeline - however editing in that is quite frankly an exercise in sheer frustration and strange bugs.

    Come on, please be true! The days of pressing CMD+R I would love to see over! Especially when you are rendering an audio effect that actual renders in a microsecond, yet won't play realtime... Sigh.

    Not again..

    NAB is for broadcast professionals - its doubtful there will be computer releases here.

    They don't have to announce the new hardware there. It's very unlikely they would have an event to announce the hardware upgrade. But there's no reason a refresh can't take place that day.

    There are many reports of supplies of imacs and minis drying up as of a week ago so a refresh is certainly imminent.

    Problem is, its still Final Cut and will still suck at managing media.

    This is so needed. Hope it is a dramatic improvement.

    I have a friend who is attending NAB next week was was told by a friend who has a booth there that Apple has arranged for lots of training sessions, more training sessions then they have usually have had in the past.

    Considering Final Cut Studio is a bit outdated I would presume we will see an announcement next week.

    I'm not trolling, this is an honest question. But isn't a Final Cut pretty much worthless for commercial use without a way to put the results on Blu-Ray?

    Strange, I thought that Apple had decided to ignore such meetings, and that they would showcase new products only during their own events.

    Nobody's using Blu-Ray, in my experience. It's just another way of sucking money out of home consumers. Everything's done online in terms of delivery...

    Final Cut does a bit more than disc authoring.

    I want to see this is a feature i want to see in final cut studio just because I use blu rays to showcase my short films at my uni's film theatre. But it's not a deal breaker Final Cut Studio isn't just about that as long as FCP is strong i can use third party software

    Personally, I love CS5, even on the Mac Pro with 5870/GTX285. Hopefully this won't jinx myself, but I've had no bugs or frustrations, and I edit full HD movies with it.

    I'm looking forward to this version of FCS, because I've only played around in it with others' systems, and it didn't blow my skirt up. It will be nice to have both suites, if the new FCS proves worthy. I know a lot of FCS users, and I look forward to joining them, so get this thing right, Apple.

    Final Cut Pro supports Blu Ray authoring but it does the bare minimum only. A DVD Studio Pro like program would be nice.
