Every year at NAB the FCPUG (Final Cut Pro User Group) puts on their own event dubbed the "SuperMeet." Since Apple pulled out of NAB two years ago, no one knew how the expected announcement of a new Final Cut Pro at this year's NAB would take place. With all other scheduled events at this year's SuperMeet suddenly being cancelled at the request of Apple, who apparently wants exclusive stage time, it looks like the new FCP will be unveiled publicly on April 12 at Bally's Event Center. The event opens at 4:30pm with presentations beginning at 7. Tickets are currently sold out; guess I should've bought a ticket when I had a chance. More details:
The Final Cut Pro User Group Network is excited to have a very special guest presentation at the 10th Annual Las Vegas FCPUG SuperMeet. Come to see a surprise sneak peek at something very special - you really do not want to miss this one!
That's the new quote on the SuperMeet homepage, which is being interpreted by many to mean Apple will unveil the new FCP on stage (and from my headline, I'm obviously included in the "many"). It remains to be seen which popularly requested features will appear in the new FCP, but considering the new version has been deemed jaw dropping, Tuesday should be a significant day for editors.
