Here’s a question for you. What will happen with the Pro Apps now that Steve is not here any more? More specifically Final Cut Pro X. And of course the Professional offering of Mac Pros. This question assumes that Steve Jobs’s vision for FCPX was very influential – which I believe was.
If I was Apple’s CEO it would be important to me to streamline the business and to shed low priority departments without emotion. With the focus of Apple dead set on mobile devices and with the stream of cash coming into Apple from those devices, I am sad to say that FCPX is not going to make it, that includes Logic and the Mac Pro.
Then the follow on question is who will buy FCPX? Or would the break away as an independent subsidiary that answers to Apple but does not weigh it down.
Or is this just unjustified guessing? Hmmm.
If I had the budget I would be editing with Avid, color correcting with Da Vinci (already with Lite) and compositing with Nuke.
Actually if Hit Film went OSX then I’s be there in a sprint
Hmmm, time to dual boot?
