    I have been seriously considering purchasing final cut express 4. It seems like it has been forever since Apple has released an update to this software. Would anyone happen to know if Apple is planning on releasing final cut express 5 sometime in the near future?

    It would certainly make sense that they would be bringing an update 'soon' but anyone is just going to be making guesses as to when. My guess (nothing more than speculation) is late Q2 or early Q3 this year.

    A chance of something being announced at NAB later this month is possible, but FCE isn't a 'pro' app, so it's IMHO unlikely (Apple wouldn't be waiting for this event).

    I'm eager to see what an update brings myself. Hopefully (finally) native AVCHD handling? I can dream...

    I was going to make a post asking the same thing. Might as well bump this thread. I'm fine with iMovie for now, but would love to dig into FCE. I'm in the same boat where, though I'd love to purchase a copy now, I can't shake this feeling that Apple will announce an update soon.

    Yeah, feeling the same way, here. I'd be interested to see a FCE 5.

    Would I be correct in thinking that FCE 4 owners will be able to upgrade from 4 to 5 for cheaper price ?
