Apple recommends Mac OS X 10.6.8 for Final Cut Pro X

updated 03:30 pm EDT, Tue June 21, 2011

Software requires at least v10.6.7

Shortly after Apple formally introduced Final Cut Pro X, the company posted a note on its support site urging users to update their systems to Mac OS X 10.6.8 when running the new video editing software. The latest Snow Leopard release, v10.6.7, is listed as a minimum requirement, however the v10.6.8 build is currently still in beta development.

The support post suggests the v10.6.8 update is "strongly recommended," though it does not provide details regarding potential enhancements after the upgrade or problems for systems that are running the current build.

Final Cut Pro X is now available directly from the Mac App Store for $300. The company has yet to announce a time-frame for releasing Mac OS X 10.6.8, but it is believed to be in the late stages of development.
