I've been here for over 6 years and I love getting news, joining in the discussions, etc. Don't be shy!

I heard FCS 3 would debut now at WWDC 09 in June, but that was about a month ago or so, and I haven't heard anything since then. I'd love to see a FCS 3 by the fall.

I saw that earlier; if true, what a disappointment for DVD Studio Pro users (which is all of us, pretty much, using FCS). No major upgrade since 2005 (4.0), only a minor bump up from 4.1 (2007). And NO Blu-ray?! Sheesh, that's not great.

FCP 7 offers real-time editing? Of course, every version does but you still have to render any filters, transitions, etc. Will we see no rendering for some FX?

If this is all true, I'm a little disappointed.

If this is true, big disappointment. I guess the only advantage for upgrading is with FCS3 being 64 bit apps (hopefully) we'll finally have FCP be able to access more than 2.5 GB of ram. Boy do I hate when I have 18 GB ram sitting in the computer and FCP only can use 2.5 (not to mention the plugins I have that are RAM dependent).

Either way, without Blu-Ray support (REAL Blu-Ray support) I may have to look elsewhere. Though I have to admit that Toast does an OK job (if you don't care about menus).

THIS JUST IN!!! FCP for iphone! Now we see why there was a 2 year wait. Yeah! (just kidding...)


Again, I was kidding about FCP for iphone. :)

Of course, before I ranted a bit there I should've said what I also thought: even if true, a lot of this info/rumor stuff we're reading is probably only part of what's going on. For all we know we could be seeing 64-bit apps here, little-to-no rendering times, Blu-ray support (at least we can encode in FCP 6.x/Compressor 3.x), and more.

Sorry to help fan the flames, but obviously we need to take a wait-and-see attitude to see what Apple actually does.

Well, I may have heard enough. Sadly, I guess I'll stick with my old mac and FCS1. I'm sure Apple won't miss my measly 4k.

Toast makes beautiful BD discs with footage from my XH A1, but it has two problems.

1) No way to define useful chapter points.

2) Sloooooooooooooooow.

I could live with slow if it had a simple window to scrub through and drop in chapter points.

I'm willing to wait another week before hitting the panic button over DVDSP updates, but I can pretty much guarantee that I won't be upgrading to FCS3 if it doesn't burn BD, even if it's nothing more than Toast level functionality.

Now the magic question is whether to get the Adobe suite for mac or bail out and start using Vegas with Windows 7.

I have FCS1 and still waiting for FCS3 to come out. Is there anyone waiting for it? May be on June 12.

No. Only you Jose ;-)

>May be on June 12.

And then again, maybe not.

Rumors are just rumors. Those who know won't tell. Those who tell don't know. If you've waited this long then waiting some more won't hurt :-)

We *might* get a peak at FCS 3 at the WWDC but it won't be shipping then. I doubt it will be shipping before Snow Leopard. And once it does ship give it another month or so for Apple to fix the worst of the bugs.

You are not alone! I have the same set up and am waiting to update.

I await with baited breath, (well not really as I use a toothbrush on a regular basis).

Regards,

Max

I'm in the middle of several projects and I've been waiting to upgrade to even FCS2 for the longest time.

I bought the FCS2 upgrade earlier this week and had to take a risk, and now I see that FCS3 may not offer Blu-Ray (which is what I wanted from FCS3 first thing)...but I'm not going to lose faith just yet. Apple has disappointed but has also continued to surprise us...so we'll see what happens at WWDC...

OK, it might help some people with AVCHD, but no BD support (hardware and software) there is hardly any point in getting the upgrade. FCS2 Compressor was a major step back imo (as far as simplicity). To be honest I'd rather buy a new version on Clipwrap2 instead of spending a wad of money on minor upgrades

The WWDC keynote is today at 10:00 am pacific (1:00 eastern) so we only have a few hours to go before we can be officially disappointed :)

Macrumors compiled a list of rumors, and of course most of them revolve around that damn phone. It's supposed to do video now (shudder) so maybe we'll get iMovie for iPhone.

They also listed a little info on Snow Leopard and some possible laptop bumps, but that's about it.
