This was a sneak peak of beta software, not a product release. There are already apps in the app store that cost more than Final Cut Pro would cost.

It's ironic that people have complained for years how secretive Apple is . . .never really telling end users how close something is to release. Finally they show a beta ahead of time and then people complain.

Anyone who thinks cost of gear equates to "professional" should exit the industry immediately. When I started, edit rooms cost millions of dollars and an Avid at $100,000 was a joke to some because it was priced so low. Each tape machine in the online room cost nearly that much.

Most production and post production house that sold their "gear" rather than their skills when under when newer less expensive gear allowed startups with talent get faster ROI.

If you're basing your business success on how much you "invested" in gear then you'll tank because you're not managing your ROI and look at future purchases based on industry trends.
