Final Cut Express HD Released As A Universal Binary

Apple released Final Cut Express HD 3.5 this morning as a Universal Binary, making the program join with Final Cut Pro as running native on Intel processors. The new software is available as either a $299 standalone product, or a $99 upgrade.

Capture and edit DV or HDV video, add dynamic titles and graphics using LiveType 2, then score your movie using Soundtrack 1.5. New features include full keyframe control over effects and motion parameters, dynamic real-time effects, and new versions of LiveType and Soundtrack. Upgrade requires a previous version of Final Cut Express (version 1, 2, or 3) for installation
