As you may have noticed, LiveType is not included in the latest round of updates from Apple.
I spoke with Richard Townhill, Director of Video Application Marketing at Apple about this and he told me that while the new version does not ship with LiveType, FCP 7 will read all current Livetype projects. So, you can use the current version of LiveType to create titles for the new version of FCP.
Plus, he said, Motion 4 has had its text functions significantly beefed up to compensate for not including LiveType. However, people who purchase Final Cut Studio from here on out, won’t get access to LiveType.
I’ll have more from my interview with Richard in the coming days, as well as reviews, tutorials, and comments on the new version of Final Cut Studio. Keep an eye on my blog – which is where updates will appear first.
