Is Color being discontinued with the release of FCP X?

I was planning to go on a color course within the next couple of months. After reading a recent article on this site am I to believe that Apple has terminated all the Apps that came in Final Cut Studio in the advent of FCP X? If so is it still worth doing a color course or are they planning to bring out new versions of Color, Soundtrack Pro etc?

It's dead. Confirmed last night in London.

Learn Davinci instead. No point learning Color unless its for your own use on an upcoming project.

Thanks for all the advice. The more I read the more I feel like the rug has been pulled from beneath me by apple.

Yes, Color is dead, unfortunately. If you are going to learn a color grading app, learn DaVinci Resolve, that will be the new standard. I'm a Color'ist planning a move to Resolve at the moment also.

What's the focus of the class? If it's extremely specific to Apple Color, you might not get much out of it for the future.

If it's an introduction to color grading, using Apple Color as the platform, most of what you'll learn will easily transfer to other systems like Resolve.
