Rumors were circulating for past 1 week as whether Apple will take stage at the NAB trade show in Las Vegas, a conference dedicated to digital video professionals, and here they promote the newest version of Final Cut Pro, titled Final Cut Pro X.
Apple has made sure to spread the word that Final Cut Pro X has been “rebuilt from the ground up” in order to ship with 64-bit support. Now the first version of Final Cut to be able to utilize more than 4 GB of Ram and also the new version can also handle 4K video with ease, and, possibly most importunely, the new Final Cut will render in the background, allowing instantaneous editing such as in the latest iMove.
It seems that Final Cut will take advantage of Grand Central Dispatch, an application built into Snow Leopard, that will let Final Cut use all available cores for background rendering.
Final Cut Pro X will be available in the Mac App Store in June for $299.
