Leaked Screenshots From Final Cut Pro X and Motion 5?


Twitter user @BWilks2001 today posted a series of screenshots (via AppleInsider) claimed to be from Apple's forthcoming Final Cut Pro X and associated Motion 5 release, potentially offering a further glimpse at what users can expect in the next-generation professional video production suite.


The screenshots are primarily from Motion 5 and reveal such aspects as the Project Browser, rigging functions, and color adjustment functionalities. According to the poster, a revamped version of Color is also said to be on the way, although no screenshots were provided.


The screenshots have since been pulled from TwitPic, with the poster claiming or at least assuming that Apple is responsible for the removal, although there appears to be no confirmation of that. The authenticity of the images has also not been verified.


Apple demoed Final Cut Pro X back in April at the Final Cut Pro User Group Network SuperMeet held in conjunction with the National Association of Broadcasters' NAB Show 2011 in Las Vegas. At the time, the company announced that Final Cut Pro X would launch via the Mac App Store in June priced at $299, but did not provide any details on other Final Cut Studio apps such as Motion and Color. Subsequent reports had indicated that the version of Final Cut Pro X demoed at the event was "nowhere near" the final version and that more info on other Final Cut Studio applications would be forthcoming in due time.


Update: The entire @BWilks2001 Twitter account has now been removed.

Hopefully like Lion, FC Pro will also be $29. :D

Apple could price everything at $29 and call it the i29 price plan.



You forgot a 9.. it is $299.

What a sad state of affairs for me an my wallet. My initial reaction to nearly every Apple rumor I've read recently has been exactly the same:

Hurry up Apple! When can I pay for this? I want to pay for this and use it right now!

Man, more news on FCPX can't come soon enough. Heck, the release can't come soon enough. I'm tired of FCP7 chugging along on a fourth of my cores and a fourth of my RAM.

I also had a clip collision that I didn't notice yesterday, and after the 30 minutes it took to fix everything when I did notice it, I wept. It's time to move on, Apple. Sooner than later, please.

Do people even read the article they are commenting on:
"...the company announced that Final Cut Pro X would launch via the Mac App Store in June priced at $299, but did not provide any details on other Final Cut Studio apps such as Motion and Color"

I am very excited about this release. Maybe even as much as I was with version 1 or when RT rendering was introduced (I think version 3). I'm actually excited to edit again when lately I've been finding it to be a daily drag. I feel like I can spend so much more time on being creative and so much less time on the monotony and slowness of the idle computing power.

I just hope that it isn't missing features compared to what we have now. I wonder when in June it will be available?

:mad: I know what you mean. I've always hated some of the arcane UIs/behavior that some editing programs employ. I'm really excited for FCX - looks like it improves on nearly everything that's irked me. The process of capturing, organizing, editing, and rendering all looks so much more streamlined than before. That's a great thing, because that means more brainpower for telling your story.

Man, Final Cut X, iOS 5, Lion, iCloud...this is a great summer for Apple fans! All that and a new spaceship landing in Cupertino :D

I expect DVD SP to be gone


That's what I am worried about....

I need to be able to create DVDs. People always seem to say Apple is killing the DVD, but tell that to my clients who want a DVD of their Wedding video. They don't want a YouTube version....

I hope Apple comes up with something for DVDs. Anyone got any alternatives? (Compressor > Toast)? PC DVD program (ouch)? Video etched in stone (that might be kind of cool)?

Absolutely. I think Apple's way off the mark if they assume that all video is being delivered via 'the (i)cloud'. Clients want something tangible that they can hold and pass around, not streaming video.
