Apple today released new versions of the entire suite of Final Cut Studio apps: Final Cut Pro 7, Motion 4, Soundtrack Pro 3, Color 1.5, and Compressor 3.5. A little birdie tells me that none of these apps are 64-bit compatible yet, and I suspect they’re all still using Carbon. I can’t find any mention of 64-bit compatibility on the Final Cut Studio tech specs page.
At least Adobe was up-front about the latest version of its CS suite still being 32-bit only. And Lightroom 2 shipped a year ago with full support for 64-bit mode, which means Adobe still has more shipping 64-bit “pro” Mac apps than Apple does.
