Lots of good suggestions. The one that really resonates with me is Mathieu's one on rendering in FCP. The cost of the upgrade would be paid in 1 job just in render time savings alone if they made it a background task and got multi-core rendering truly happening on when rendering a sequence and exporting to Quicktime.

This profoundly affects all of us especially those working with LongGOP based footage.

You also need to send documents in the old version's file, because chances are that other people don't have the new version of word.

I think IF there is a new FCS DVDSP will not be in it. I think they have gone as far as they can with maestro and IF they are going to do bluray it will most likely be incorporated into FCP itself. Id like to see native AVCHD editing and a different way to handle audio I really cant explain it not being a regular FCP user (mainly because of the audio) but the way the audio is handled seems inconsistant if I capture through FCP is works one way if I import the files from somewhere else its different. Drives me nuts my needs are pretty simple. Oh id like a feature where FCP automaticly ripples back to allow handles when dropping in transsitions I know commercial guys would hate this so maybe it can be put in a pref somewhere. BTW what e-mail??

I would also like to see FCP move towards Aperture/Lightroom.

On the other side:
I have fallen in love with CS5, and I am not sure I will ever go back to FCS. Apple is too slow, doesn't communicate with its customers, which I find unacceptable when you are dealing with prosumers and professionals who earn money with your software. There is no roadmap, nothing. And finally, I really believe that Apple's going to sell its Pro Apps in the near future. They don't need them anymore.

And as mentioned before, the future is online (interactive) content and Adobe is much better in that (Flash integration, Dynamic Link i.e.). So, to conclude, curious to see what they have cooked up, but it has to be shy of awesome for me to really go back to Final Cut Studio again.

Re: A Wish List for the 2011 Final Cut Studio

There are some pretty interesting rumours (that's rumors to a lot of you!) circulating on some of the Mac forums about a new FCS 2011 launch this spring. Seems a few select video pros (with the emphasis on the word pros) have been invited in to test it out as they put the final touches to it and it's supposed to be "radical". Glad I held off on the half hearted FCS 3 update last year..(I'm still on FCS2). Let's hope this turns out to be true!

New Final Cut Pro Is Real, And It’s Spectacular (And It’s Expected Spring 2011)

The only thing I can say is that Techcrunch's predicting record is pretty decent.

Re: A Wish List for the 2011 Final Cut Studio

My feeling is that Apple will eventually be leveraging the touch screen capabilities of the iOS/iPhone/iPad into the OS X/Macs. So I'd love to eventually see a touch version of FCP and also the ability to use the the iPad as an accessory peripheral integrated with FCP. I would see that as jaw-dropping.

Re: A Wish List for the 2011 Final Cut Studio

Just look at a demo of iMovie for iPad 2 to see what may be possible. Imagine a 27" touch screen display running Final Cut

I must be the only one who isn't excited at the prospect of dirty, oily fingerprints all over my screen when I'm trying to edit.

Re: A Wish List for the 2011 Final Cut Studio

How about having the iPad as a control interface that works with FCP. Imagine being able to assign any window to an iPad and then dragging and dropping between the two. You could have just the timeline on the iPad where you could use touch controls, but bins and monitors stay on the main screen!

Re: A Wish List for the 2011 Final Cut Studio

Brilliant in theory, but, how would you know what you're touching without looking? With a computer screen, everything's in front of your eyes at the same time. With a screen/touch surface, it would likely be under your hands, and you'd constantly have to look down to see what control you're fumbling with, no?

Re: A Wish List for the 2011 Final Cut Studio

I'm surprised that no-one mentioned the obvious - "make a version for Windows".

Re: A Wish List for the 2011 Final Cut Studio

I'm curious about this too and whether architecturally there will be utilization of the iPad as an interface device with processing tasks executed by a service implementation on a MacPro.
