Apple earlier this month announced a new version of Final Cut Pro (1.2.5), which, like FCP 1.2, version 1.2.5 is optimized for the G4's Velocity Engine. Apple says the new version offers faster rendering speeds, improved batch capture, three-key shuttling, Macromedia Flash import, new audio reverb filters and support for PAL.

Also like 1.2, FCP 1.2.5 includes Puffin/Pinnacle Systems' Commotion DV, Maxon Computer's Cinema 4D Go and Terran Interactive's Media Cleaner EZ 4 for QuickTime.

Media Cleaner Compression Suite Broadcast Edition is available only with Final Cut Pro at a bundle price of $1,848. This specially priced bundle is available through the end of July from the Apple Store. Media Cleaner Compression Suite is also available separately from Terran Interactive for $1,299. The full version of Final Cut Pro sells for $999. For more information, visit http://www.apple.com or http://www.terran.com.
