Holy shikes.

Edit: It's not available for purchase yet though... maybe they're still getting it updated in the Apple store?

Ouch - I only have just bought and registered FCS2.

New one available to buy now

Just noticed this:

"Upgrade from prior versions of Final Cut Studio, Production Suite, or Final Cut Pro*"

There's hope at last!

Talk about a quiet announcement! Apple wasn't kidding about 86-ing debuting it at a major show, like NAB, etc. But I thought they'd at least do a press conference.

Looks great (Final Cut Studio 3), but this is the third iteration of Final Cut Studio WITHOUT a new version of DVD Studio Pro...

FCS3 and Blu-Ray - at last!

At last! To quote from the blurb directly....

"Blu-ray disc and DVD burning. You can now easily burn a Blu-ray disc or a DVD directly from Compressor. Quickly add a menu to your disc by choosing one of the beautiful Apple-designed HD or SD templates or, to achieve a specific look, import and use third-party or custom templates"

Not only has the price of the whole suite gone down ...

But the upgrade price is much lower than before too ...

Only $299 now to upgrade? I love Apple!!!!

Brd

It's always DVD Studio Pro 4 with no Blu-Ray authoring. :-(
However, it seems that it's now possible to burn a very simple BR directly from Compressor 3.5, like those we can burn with Toast, I guess.

That was under Compressor 3.5... However, it's definitely music to my ears!

"Blu-ray–compatible H.264 encoding Compressor now includes a setting that allows you to create Blu-ray–compatible H.264 files that can be imported directly into third-party Blu-ray disc authoring software."

So, DVD Studio Pro 4.x won't do it. That version came out in 2005. Well, good thing I have Encore CS4 and Toast 10 Titanium Pro!

Quick note: Hi guys - first post here. Thanks to Chris Hurd for the privilege, as well as Robert Lane and numerous others here for insightful tips and suggestions. Been reading this forum for most of 2009.

I agree -- was hoping for, but didn't seriously expect, a revamped DVDSP with Blu-Ray authoring. Noticed the Compressor support, so that's something, at least. Noticed a bunch of new features that I could make good use of from the get-go.

A nice summary of the major new features in the new FCS7 suite can be found here:

Apple - Final Cut Studio - Whats New

(I'm still reading and digesting the list.)

Ordered the upgrade. Done. Very excited!

Will be interested to learn how the new FCS will take advantage of the 8 core Macs.

Will also be looking at how they plan this update to work with Snow Leopard. Are they aiming for any additional performance boost with 10.6, or is this update all the performance enhancements they have lined up? That's my question.

Yes! Please let me know how you get on (I have an 2009 8 core 2.66Ghz Nehalem Mac Pro). I'm in the middle of some big and very time critical corporate jobs right now with FCS2 so won't risk being a beta tester/bug reporter for FCS3 ...but am very keen to upgrade as soon as it looks sensible to do so - and as soon as it's clear how all this will work with SL (when that's finally released!).

I nearly bought Toast 10 yesterday so glad I waited (to be confirmed... but it seems the Compressor route in FCS3 will be basically the same as the Toast route, as indicated above in this thread, i.e. simple Blu-Ray - but that's all I need for my PS3). Looks like it's been a good day already!

We can compress to Blu-ray right now in the latest version of Compressor (3.0.5) and create BDs with Encore CS4 or Toast 10 Titanium Pro.
