    Alo, now that the new FCS has been released can we assume the budget version will get a revision sometime soon too?

    Any ideas or info?


    Cheers

    Most probably, no idea on time frame or features that will be included though.

    Any updates on possible V5 release? I hate to buy V4 and see V5 come out shortly thereafter...

    I'm on the same fence. I want to get FCE 4 right now but holding off for 5 upgrade. For now, I'm using my 3.5.

    If Apple will not upgrade from 3.5, then I'm screwed.

    We should see an upgrade soon. From what it looks like from some 'version' sources, November is a likely candidate for an update. If anything it will be a silent one. FCE 4 is about 2 1/2 years old for crying out loud.

    Good things come to those who wait. There are still a few more days left in November, if not December is just around the corner. :)

    Not that I'm aware of. But I'm teaching myself FCE now and, boy, is it a GREAT program. I don't need an upgrade. :p

    Nab 2010

    Apple just announced they'll be participating in NAB 2010...
    Maybe (hopefully!!) we'll see a Final Cut Express update there.
    3 Days!

    They're exhibiting at NAB? Wow, how weird! They must be looking for television content deals for the iPad. :D

    4.0.1 is the loneliest number that you'll ever do.
    4.0 can be as bad as 4.0.1,
    Its the loneliest number since the number 4.0.1...:(

    Anybody wanna buy an 4.0 upgrade pack, its lonely:D

    Fce X?

    Looks like FCE X might be coming... at least "FCE X Editing Workshop" by Tom Wolsky [ISBN-10 = 0240812778] seems to be ready for release around Nov.2010.

    Thanks for the info, but I don't think that is much of a sure sign to a new release. Plus, I kind of think if Apple was going to use X in this suite, they would have done it a while ago, or at least earlier than now or November 2010. I think that is just a place holder type title for when the author expects a new version to come out of the software, so he can update his previous book with new features, as most every Final Cut book has ever been. But I could be wrong.

    I just want a 4.0.2 update, hopefully before 5.0.1:)

    Still not yet.

    Back to the Mac Event has come and gone. iLife '11 has been announced, iMovie '11 has been announced, yet not Final Cut Express 5. Maybe in 2011, January - April with a MacBook Pro update / MacBook update.

    I would think February at the earliest... From what I remember, They have previously updated it pretty quietly after the shows get over. Or they will just deprecate it. Maybe they will release it for the IOS since that is all Apple cares about anymore. Sorry for the negativity.

    Heading towards the end of November folks...!

    Does anybody know what's going to happen?
    FCE is really getting old now.

    FCP6 and 7 are not that different. Exactly which feature should come to the Express version? I assume none and we have to wait until FCP 8 comes out.

    Maybe Apple will ditch FCE and lower the price of FCPro?

    Me, I am thinking darkly positive. What if Apple does to FCE what it did to iMovie 06, walks away but allows free downloads? And, when it makes the Mac App store live, and the new Final Cut Pro is available, it lets folks download the new 64-bit Final Cut Pro, not the entire Studio, for a low price ($350).

    As it is, iMovie 11 does a lot of what FCE does, and if one jacks up the data rate, exports reasonably good stuff.

    It has been over three years since a FCE upgrade. I think it would be a good trade, to be able to get Final Cut Pro for $350, and spend maybe $80 for Color. Apple would make more money from the cheaper Pro than having both FCE5 and the new Studio. But that is pure daydream...

    Well, it's past Nov, past Christmas, past the February guesses, and now only a couple of weeks until NAB. I just can't see myself buying a piece of ANY type of software that is 3 years old. Do you suppose that if I buy FCE 4 now, I might get a free upgrade to FCE 5 if it comes out at NAB? :confused:

    Nope, I highly doubt you would. About the only time they do that for software is if you order it and it comes out while your order is being processed. A quick check of the Apple Store saying shipping within 24hrs. But let me know if you want to buy my FCE 4, and you can always upgrade it to 5 when it arrives!:D
