Apple on Friday released a new bundle of apps specifically for education customers. The apps include Final Cut Pro X ($299.99), Logic Pro X ($199.99), Motion 5 ($49.99), Compressor 4 ($49.99), and MainStage 3 ($29.99). Apple is selling the bundle for $199, which is quite a discount when you look at the regular price for the apps if purchased individually.
Final Cut Pro is Apple’s professional video editing software and Logic is its pro audio workstation. Motion 5 allows you to create effects and 3D animations for Final Cut, and Compressor lets you adjust output settings for your creations. MainStage is a companion app for Logic and is used for live performances.
After you purchase the bundle, Apple will send codes that can be redeemed on the Mac App Store.
The Pro Apps Bundle for Education is available for teachers, faculty, staff, and college students, as well as K12 and HiEd institutions.
This is a great idea by Apple. Giving educators and students a deal on the software to help them be successful is always a good decision.
