I just got off the phone with a lovely woman at 1-800-MY-APPLE.
Here are the highlights of the call.
- Final Cut Studio 3 is back on sale. In fact it’s been available for 4 days.
- The studio costs $999 (just like it used to).
- If you're a student, that’s $899 (just like it used to).
- There are NO other discounts or upgrades that the representative could find.
This product is not on the consumer Apple website. You have to call 1-800-MY-APPLE. According to the representative… she says that there’s been A LOT of calls asking for it to go back on sale… so she was glad to be able to sell it again (instead of telling people no).
So there you have it…. Those of you sitting on older versions of Final Cut Pro can step up (but not upgrade). You’re now set if you needed new licenses to go with that new Mac Pro (oh wait, still waiting for that…).
Here’s another story on the re-release, if that helps.
I’ve updated my chart on where things stand for Final Cut Pro X (which still seems stuck in the middle).
