Apple has denied reports that the next major version of its Final Cut Studio suite of professional video applications will be a big departure, focusing less on the professional audience it’s always been for.
Final Cut Pro X stays in the picture for pros. On Tuesday, AppleInsider reported that it had received information from a source with knowledge of Apple’s internal Pro Apps plans pertaining to the future of the suite. The source reportedly told the publication that a major reshuffling of the Final Cut management team had occurred, to “retarget its efforts to more closely match the needs of the majority of its customers.” According to the report, Apple currently sells far more copies of the $199 Final Cut Express than it does its $999 Final Cut Studio.
