    Apple doesn't do FCP announcements at MWSF. And certainly not at the Super Meet. Wait for NAB.

    That's about right. I wouldn't expect anything more than a minor update this year, maybe support AVCHD, maybe improve HD movie disc authoring a little bit. Their pattern is to alternate between minor updates and major release each year. This year, minor update, next, major release.



    The Supermeet schedule showed a talk about FCP and the new Eight-cores, nothing earth shaking but probably interesting to those that use the software.



    The guy that runs the SuperMeet is co-host of this podcast:

    They'll probably discuss it in tonight's edition, I'll listen to it tomorrow.

    It has to be related to the Shake successor. Final Cut Studio 2 is fairly recent. My guess is that Apple will take the components of Shake that make it one of the best effects packages out there and change it from being a specialist app into a component that integrates with Final Cut studio much more easily. And it will kick Adobe's ass. Premiere with AE will be nothing compared to Phenomenon, Final Cut and well Motion I guess.



    Right now Shake is still fairly separate. When you use it, it's as if they took the original Nothing Real package and added Quicktime to it and cleaned up a few bugs then stuck an Apple sticker on it. It is far from an Apple application - it doesn't even use a Mac native file browser.



    In many ways I like that it's not a true Apple product because it's powerful in a way that Apple don't usually support. I just hope they don't ruin it - a lot of people are worried they will and dumb it down. If they treat it like OS X which still ended up as a powerful unix system despite being easy to use, it should be ok. I have my cautious underpants on though. I saw the first incarnation of Motion and I wasn't impressed.



    Motion has improved but it's taken a while and Shake users have already been waiting for 2 years I think for an update. This state of continually waiting for Apple to get their finger out and deliver some useful products doesn't make them look good as a company among professionals. Consumers are fine, they get catered for all the time but serious high end users just get put to the back and it makes Apple look like a toy company.
