When Apple released Final Cut Pro X, it also discontinued Final Cut Studio, much to the chagrin of professional video editors. Now Apple has begun selling the video editing suit of apps again, complete with Final Cut Pro 7, although shoppers won’t find it through the company’s online store.
Final Cut Studio: Back from the dead
Buyers looking to get their hands on a copy of Final Cut Studio need to call Apple’s sales phone number, 1-800-MY-APPLE, and ask for the application suite. The part number for the suite is MB642Z/A, which can come in handy if the sales representative is having trouble finding the Final Cut suite in their product system.
The Final Cut Studio suite includes Final Cot Pro 7, Soundtrack Pro 3, Motion 4, Compressor 3.5, Color 1.5 and DVD Studio Pro 4.
Apple released Final Cut Pro X in June and discontinued Final Cut Pro X and Final Cut Studio at the same time. The new Final Cut Pro release has a redesigned interface that borrows elements from iMovie, and offers 64-bit support and background rendering.
Final Cut Studio is priced at US$999.
