New Final Cut Studio delayed to 2011?

updated 11:45 am EDT, Thu September 30, 2010

Some intended features may be pushed to 2013

The next version of Final Cut Studio has been delayed until 2011, sources claim. Originally rumored to be coming in 2010, the project has allegedly been hit by several setbacks. Among these is work on a unified interface, for which Apple has allegedly been unable to find a suitable compromise -- not only in terms of design, but between the development teams working on Shake and Motion.

The two groups are said to have "fundamental differences of opinion" on what a unified interface should look like. As a result the feature is believed to have been postponed until an even later version of Studio, shipping in 2013.

Also claimed to be taking a toll is Apple's overriding focus on iOS devices. The company is said to be reassigning some of its most qualified software engineers to the mobile platform, impacting not only Final Cut but other projects related to Mac OS X. Apple is known to regularly shift people between products based on priority. The current situation is however thought to be upsetting Randy Ubillos, the man in charge of Final Cut.

    The source is Hardmac, a French site that has gone total tabloid BS. There's no difference of opinion. There's no disputes between the teams for Shake and Motion. Shake was dropped over a year ago.

    Hardmac is covering up for prior claims that a new FCS is coming out this year. They don't want to look dumb so they are making wild claims like this and claims that Apple has basically dropped all non iOS projects cause they don't care about making computers anymore.

    But they actually have no clue. They don't know that Randy is upset, that people are mass shifting to anything. they are just pulling details out of their asses and this site is falling for it hook line and sinker
