[Zeno Pierre] "I bought Final Cut Studio a while back. When I open Final Cut it says that I have Final Cut Pro not Studio. I wanted to do some work on HD footage. Do I need Final Cut Pro HD?"

Final Cut Studio is a suite of applications, we are now up to Final Cut Studio 3. Final Cut Pro is the editing software and it's up to Version 7.

Yes, Final Cut Pro is perfectly fine for editing HD, especially any version that was included with the Studio suites. Now the type of HD editing you can do is wholly dependant on your system configuration and the version of Final Cut Pro you actually own.

DVCPro HD and HDV for example can be cut on pretty much any Mac. ProRes, which was first included with Final Cut Pro 6, can be cut on most Intel Macs. Uncompressed HD requires a desktop machine and an extremely fast hard drive array.
