According to Apple's Rosetta page, when universal versions of the FCP Studio apps come out, you'll be able to upgrade from FCP 4.5/Production Suite to FCP Studio for only $199, which is a great deal, considering the normal upgrade price was $499 IIRC. Anyway, I'm wondering if Academic version qualify. I believe this page used to mention that educational versions were not eligible for the upgrade price, but they've now removed that. I guess we'll find out for sure after February 1, but I'm thinking that this may be great news to those with academic (or even regular) versions of FCP 4.5 that were wanting to upgrade. I think Apple's thinking is that this will really help remove barriers to buy new Intel Macs.
