    Hey, I know some companies don't make the education versions of their programs so you can't just upgrade them--you have to buy a whole shebang again, and I was wondering if anyone knew if the new Final Cut Studio was like that too.

    I realize that they don't make educational upgrades, just full versions, but someday when i'm no longer a student and they release an upgrade i'm going to want to be able to just buy the upgrade.

    So, should am I going to have to spring for the full version of Studio 2, or can I get by with the educational? Thanks a bunch!

    You can't upgrade the Educational version.

    Apple was offering the cross grade licenses for a while to go to the Intel Software version. When you did this, they gave you the retail disks / license, but that offer ended about a month before the new FCS introduction.

    yea you can't upgrade the academic. Which IMO stinks cause i would upgrade but buying it again seems pointless. What am i going to do do with the "old" studio package. I could sell it but i prob won't get much.
