Apple today introduced Final Cut Pro 4, a major upgrade of its Emmy award-winning editing software for film, HD, SD and DV. Final Cut Pro 4 offers more than 300 new features, and introduces RT Extreme for real-time composting and effects, powerful new interface customization tools, new high-quality 8- and 10-bit uncompressed formats and for the first time in an editing system costing less than US$100,000, full 32-bit floating point per channel video processing. Final Cut Pro 4 also includes three completely new integrated applications — LiveType for advanced titling, Soundtrack for music creation and Compressor for full featured batch transcoding. Additionally, Cinema Tools, previously sold separately, is now included with Final Cut Pro 4 with new support for change lists and ink numbers for filmmakers working with 35mm or 16mm film. Final Cut Pro 4 will be available in June for $999. Registered Final Cut Pro users can upgrade to Final Cut Pro 4 for $399.
