∞ Report: Mac OS X Lion-compatible Final Pro updates coming in March

Users of Apple’s professional filmmaking software, Final Cut Pro, may be in for a new version in the next couple of months, according to a new report on Monday.

[ad#Google Adsense 300×250 in story]Citing reports from HardMac, AppleInsider on Monday said Final Cut Pro could be updated in March or April of 2011. Perhaps some disappointing news for the true pro users, is that the updates may not bring high-end features those users would hope for.

There are reportedly two versions of the software currently in testing, one for Snow Leopard and the other for Mac OS X Lion. As with all new software, some features of Final Cut Pro will only work with the newer Mac OS X Lion.

That may be a bit difficult for Apple to pull off since Lion isn’t expected until the summer. If the report is true Apple would basically tout new features of Final Cut Pro without the ability for customers to use them for a few months.

AppleInsider last year said Apple was going to make Final Cut Pro a more prosumer friendly application.
