Apple Final Cut Pro X revealed, sports 64-bit support

Apple just lifted the curtain on Final Cut Pro X during the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) show in Las Vegas. The latest version of the hugely popular video editing software adds support for 64-bit processors and can now take advantage of more than 4GB of RAM. There are a number of enhancements including new smart collections for grouping similar types of media together – like multiple photos of one person, in the same vain as iPhoto – clip connection for keeping audio and video in sync, and a magnetic timeline feature that prevents trim collision. Apple also says there’s a new user interface design, and users will be able to start editing video before the ingest stage is completed. Final Cut Pro X is also capable of background rendering and can take advantage of 8-core editing rigs in addition to handling 4K video clips. Apple says Final Cut Pro X will be available in June for $299.
