Apple recommends yet unreleased OS X 10.6.8 for Final Cut Pro X users

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Apple has recommended that users of the newly released Final Cut Pro X, Motion 5 and Compressor 4 update to Mac OS X 10.6.8, even though the update has not been released yet.

In a support document released today after the availability of the new Pro Apps, the company briefly mentions "Updating to Mac OS X v10.6.8 or later is strongly recommended when using Final Cut Pro X, Motion 5, or Compressor 4."

The recommendation appears to indicate that the update should be available shortly. Apple is also working to release the initial public version of Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, which is scheduled to become available next month.

While Lion will be available for a nominal $30 fee through the Mac App Store, the new 10.6.8 update for Mac OS X Snow Leopard will be a free update available through Software Update for all existing Snow Leopard users.

Apple also reminds users of the new Pro Apps run Software Update to download and install the new QuickTime codecs for Pro Apps, including Apple Intermediate Codec, Apple ProRes, AVC-Intra, DVCPRO HD, HDV, XDCAM HD / EX / HD422, MPEG IMX and Uncompressed 4:2:2.

What's this? Apple releasing video drivers and codec's that should have been available years ago... Woooot... this is the year of 'back to the Mac'.

It's hard to believe Apple would say this unless the release of 10.6.8 is VERY imminent. As in 3...2...1....

Apple should have waited until after the update was released before they released Final Cut Pro X.

They have been available for years...as long as you had Final Cut of some kind.

No, you don't. No more than any one of us.

If you are only using the Macbook Pro wireless try deleting the ethernet connection(It is easy to add back in). That worked for my 2010 model.

Does this version of Final Cut finally support BlueRay; or is Apple still in denial that HDDVD Lost.

To answer your question: yes, Final Cut Pro X does support Blu-Ray. And Apple has axed DVD Studio Pro and rolled it in to Final Cut (as they have also done with Color and Soundtrack). In fact, Final Cut Studio 3 already supported burning Blu-Ray disks.

More importantly, Apple has never favored HD-DVD over Blu-Ray. Steve Jobs has resisted physical media since the beginning of the Blu-Ray HD-DVD spat, arguing that streaming was going to make it obsolete before adoption was widespread. And for the most part, Jobs was right.

The reason Final Cut Studio 2 didn't support "HD-DVD" so much as it supported "HD" DVDs. That is because HD-DVD were just an HD format of the current DVD standard on an higher density disk than traditional DVDs. In contrast, Blu-Rays were a different format altogether.

I said here 2 years ago. Dimeone I know saw FCP. Thr new one and said it was more like iMovie with the power of FCP. I guess he didn't mess with it.

I wouldn't worry. It will Be an easy to use program and with some updates, become very deep like FCP. Watch.

Peace.

1. It's Blu-ray. You're going to whine about useless tech, you're going to spell it correctly.
2. Final Cut Studio 3 supported Blu-ray burning, for frick's sake. We've had it for over a year.

Apple has been on the Blu-ray board since Blu-ray came out. If you're going to make crap up, at least make up the truth.
