Final Cut Pro used for feature film

Apple’s Final Cut Pro is being used on its first major feature film, according to The Hollywood Reporter. “Esteemed editor Walter Murch sent ripples of surprise through the editing community when he decided to use the system to cut Anthony Minghella’s “Cold Mountain,” due out Christmas 2003, for Miramax. That decision has prompted some in the feature community to take a closer look at Apple’s desktop-based system,” writes Sheigh Crabtree in the article. “He says he was able to procure four Final Cut systems for a fraction of what it would cost him to rent a single Avid Film Composer. The beauty of that is he can do four things at once: one for picture editing, one for file management, one for digitizing footage and another for burning DVD dailies.”
