According to Apple...

This update will install

This update includes fixes and performance improvements for Final Cut Pro 4. Improvements have been made to auto-select functionality, subclips, match frame, and timeline editing. Effects and filter performance have been improved, as have variable speed, audio playback, and text generator performance. This update also fixes some rare cases in which the application stops responding. Final Cut Pro 4.0.1 is strongly recommended for all users of Final Cut Pro 4.

Compressor 1.0.1 for Final Cut Pro 4
This update adds international support and includes improvements to one-pass VBR accuracy for MPEG-2 encoding. In addition, Compressor 1.0.1 is strongly recommended for customers using both Shake and Final Cut Pro 4 on the same system.

They sound like welcome improvments. Thanks for the heads up.

IN regard to the Live Type Update. What about the key frames does it fix. DO they actually work now?

I haven't seen any real user reports on fixes for LT yet. Most people seem to be happy with the fixes to FCP4.

At this point in time you apparently can only update via the software updater. Apple says standalone updates will be available later.

John,
My thoughts exactly. But, as it turns out, this is a new item of software, also. It shows up in the standard Software Updater. Try.

I swear that I've looked all over the Apple website and can't find any info on this. Can you give me a link? Thanks.

Methinks I've been snubbed. I'm still on 10.1.5, so it's not coming up on the update even though I have newest versions of iMovie and iTunes.

No problem, I'm waiting for the next system release and I'll update then.

For now the only way of updating is via the software updater. The Pro application support is part of the update for FCP 4. So, if you don't have FCP 4 then I don't think it will appear. If you do have FCP 4 then the Pro Application Support tool should download first then when you run the updater a second time it will update the rest of the applications.

If you have changed the name of the folders for any of the applications then software update will not work for the download.

Apple says they are working to put it up for more general downloading but gave no time frame.

How big is the update? I only have dial-up. Or would it be better to wait for a stand-alone?

Once the updates are available seperately you can always take a CD-R into the local Apple store to get the updates. The local CompUSA MIGHT do it as well.
