Updates on Recent Postings

Posted on by Larry

My recent thoughts about the relationship between Snow Leopard and the next version of Final Cut Studio generated a lot of comments — especially on other forums. For instance, here’s an example from KenStone.net:


Thanks for all your comments and thoughts on this. My information for my posting was based on talking with both programmers and knowledgeable engineers at a variety of different companies. However, I would be foolish to ignore the expertise of Philip Hodgetts and others. My goal in both my blogs and newsletters is to be as accurate as possible and, when errors exist, to correct them quickly.

Philip Hodgetts did a detailed analysis of this issue in his blog a couple of days ago that I strongly encourage you to read:


My bigger point was two-fold: to explain why I felt the next version of FCP would not ship until after Snow Leopard and to begin to explore the impact Snow Leopard may have on Final Cut editors. The reality is that we won’t know the impact until both products are announced and shipped. Until then, I’m grateful for everyone’s comments.

On another subject, after sharing my concerns about the latest round of Apple MacBook Pro laptops, yesterday Apple released:

MacBook Pro EFI Firmware Update 1.7 addresses an issue using drives based on the SATA 3Gbps specification with the MacBook Pro introduced in June 2009. This update allows drives to use transfer rates greater than 1.5Gbps, however Apple has not qualified or offered these drives for Mac portable computers, and their use remains unsupported. All previous and current Apple portables with a SATA drive interface include a SATA 1.5Gbps hard drive.
