The Final Cut Pro team is hard at work on a version of Final Cut Pro X that will support all the performance and graphic capabilities of this machine.
We know that the Mac Pro can have a pair of fast ATI GPUs (at least, fast for now) and that it has no shortage of Thunderbolt ports. It also has some very quick—but so far not very well-explained—PCIe-based solid state internal storage. The recent Thunderbolt spec bump gave Thunderbolt 2 the bandwidth to drive a 3840×2160-pixel display—that’s the resolution on a “4K” display—and Schiller mentioned several times that the new Mac Pro could handle multiple 4K displays.
While a new version of Final Cut coming out is inevitable based on Schiller’s comments, that it will be focused around 4K editing and production workflows is now also inevitable given the hardware that Apple will be releasing. Ars writer Dave Girard articulates it better than me, but the writing’s on the wall: the new Mac Pro is nothing less than a 4K video editing power play.
We’re already laying the groundwork to review the Mac Pro as soon as it’s available to us, and you can bet that putting the new version of Final Cut Pro X through its paces on the Mac Pro will be part of the deal. Stay tuned.
