Final Cut Pro X

Announced last night at NAB in Vegas: a long-awaited major new version of Apple’s professional video editing software. A ground-up rewrite with 64-bit support, Grand Central Dispatch support (for multi-core processing, which in turn allows most rendering to take place in the background), better color management, and a lot more. Ships in June for just $299, from, of course, the Mac App Store.

Photography Bay has video clips of the announcement presentation.

Update: MacRumors has decent-quality video of the event, too.
