Final Cut Studio 5.1, consisting of Final Cut Pro 5, Soundtrack Pro, Motion 2, and DVD Studio Pro 4, is now available as a Universal application, native on both Intel and PowerPC Macs.

New copies of Final Cut Studio 5.1 cost $1,299 USD. Upgrade pricing (from Apple's crossgrade page): $699 upgrade from Final Cut Pro 1, Final Cut Pro 2, or Final Cut Pro 3; $199 upgrade from Final Cut Pro 4 or HD, Motion 2, Soundtrack Pro, DVD Studio Pro 4, or Production Suite; $99 upgrade from Final Cut Pro 5; $49 upgrade from Final Cut Studio.

Apple's pro media applications have been packaged as Final Cut Studio since Final Cut Pro 5 was announced in April last year.

Final Cut Express HD is not yet Universal. According to the online Apple Store, "The next feature release of Final Cut Express will be a Universal application, which will run natively on both PowerPC- and Intel-based Mac computers."

Good news for those waiting.

But the way it was rolled out makes me think there won't be any event in the next several days, or you'd think they'd wait to announce it then?

So does that mean "no finalcut 6 + no support for Canon 24f + no support for HDV 720 24p" at NAB 2006 ?
I don't think this negates the previous rumors. Work on version 6 could very well have been going on simultaneously with the work to create Final Cut Studio 5 Universal.

I tend to agree. This and the lack of invites (as far as I know) would suggest that if there is an event planned for the anniversary, it has to be for later next month. There are 6 days left and still no word--now this?

Oh well.

Upgrade from Academic FCP4?

Does anyone know if the $199 upgrade from Final Cut Pro 4 would apply to the Academic version of Final Cut Pro 4? Specifically, I bought the Apple Production Suite, which included Final Cut Pro 4, DVD Studio Pro, and others.

ANSWER: YES! If you look at the PDF, it allows for Academic upgrades.
SWEET!

the accidemic version is the same, it just costs less so i think you should be able to upgrade ;)
Final Cut Studio 5.1 Academic is $699, but I don't know that they have academic upgrade pricing.

Final Cut Express HD Academic is $149.
