Apple begins selling old Final Cut Studio again


Apple launched Final Cut Pro X at Mac App Store two months ago, to much of disapproval and outrage of professional users due to drastic UI changes, lack of backwards compatibility and missing some essential features available in old version.

Apple has relented and has made the old version Final Cut Studio available for sale. You can purchase the old version for $999 (or $899 for educational buyers) by calling 1-800-MY-APPLE as old Final Cut Studio is not available at Apple Store or online store. Final Cut Studio is $700 more expensive than Final Cut Pro X but it is a suite of applications that include Final Cut Pro 7, Motion 4, Soundtrack Pro 3, DVD Studio Pro 4, Color 1.5 and Compressor 3.5.
