Hardmac reports that Apple may be planning to introduce a revised version of its Final Cut Studio professional video editing software at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) conference in April 2010. According to the report's sources, the most recent version of Final Cut Studio, released just this past July, is actually a temporary version focused on providing Snow Leopard compatibility.

Many users consider this version as incomplete, and according to internal source, the current version 3.0 is tagged as a "temporary/transition". The main reason seems to be associated to Snow Leopard release. It seems that one could not integrate all changes expected in FCP 3.0 with Snow leopard development schedule. So, apparently the really new version should be unveiled by Apple during the NAB 2010 which will take place from April 10 to 15, 2010.

Apple has in the past used NAB as a forum for such product launches, debuting Final Cut Studio 2 and other associated products there in 2007. Apple, however, pulled out of the 2008 conference and did not return for 2009. Given Apple's continued move toward reducing its presence at trade shows, most notably with its departure from Macworld San Francisco, a return to NAB would be something of a surprise.

Hardmac notes that the source's information has not been confirmed, but that the source has been accurate in the past. Readers, however, are also cautioned that there is still plenty of time for plans to change prior to NAB 2010.
