    Default New FCP 7 Licenses May Be Available To Enterprise Clients, Maybe

    Apple head a prive briefing July 6 in London regarding enterprise contracts. A number of details have emerged in a series of tweets by Sam Jognson of AMV Lab (@aPostEngineer) regarding FCP X and Apple's plans to continue supporting FCP 7 as well.

    The backlash from current FCP 7 enterprise users and the editing community as a whole has been overwhelmingly negative. So much so, Apple is considering making additional FCP 7 licenses available to enterprise contract customers. This would go against Apple's previous plans of discontinuing FCP 7, and Apple is actively researching the legal ramifications of brining back a discontinued product. However, is must be noted that only existing volume license holders will be able to buy additional FCP 7 licenses.

    Below is a list of information compiled by Alex4d from the tweets by Johnson who was at the meeting first hand:

    1. 1. FCP XML in/out is coming via 3rd party soon…no FCP 6/7 support project support coming ever it seems…
    2. 2. Ability to buy FCP7 licenses for enterprise deployments coming in the next few weeks… (This was later updated to reflect Apple's position that they are merely considering doing this.)
    3. 3. FCPX EDL import/export coming soon…
    4. 4. FCPX AJA plugins coming soon for tape capture and layback…capture straight into FCPX bins. (This will not be an AJA plugin, but an actual AJA application.)
    5. 5. XSAN support for FCPX coming in the next few weeks…
    6. 6. FCPX Broadcast video output via #Blackmagic & @AJAVideo coming soon…
    7. 7. Additional codec support for FCPX via 3rd Parties coming soon…
    8. 8. Customizable sequence TC in FCPX for master exports coming soon…
    9. 9. Some FCPX updates will be free some will cost…
    Johnson answered a few other questions from twitter users, and confirmed that Color, DVD studio, and the rest of the FCP Studio Suite have reached their EOL and will not be developed any more.

    It's been a rough few weeks for FCP die-hards out there. There will be some relief soon, but this definitely doesn't do too much to quell FCP editing guru's fears.

    Great Apple! What a bunch of [email protected]! Its a great time to switch to Premiere and hope for a tighter integration with After Effects.

    PD.: Damn! I still cant believe it! Years of pro working with FCS Pro ends like this? Please Apple, think different or GTFO and let me know...
