    Another new job listing — this one seems even more interesting (and revealing) then the one for audio:

    Sr. UI/Visual Designer

    Apple’s Video Applications group is seeking a Senior User Interface Designer who possesses a passion for great design, a superb aesthetic sense, an exceptional eye for detail and an in depth understanding of our user’s needs. The ideal candidate will have a deep understanding of the principles and best practices of human interface design. The candidate will be able to bring their years of design experience from creating and designing other products to Final Cut Studio.

    hmmmm….

    If nothing else it shows that Apple are serious about future development of FCPX.

    interesting that they say bring it to “Final Cut Pro Studio” not FCPX which is no longer a “studio” — could final cut pro 8 be on the way?!?!?! 🙂

    I noticed that too. Very interesting!

    Could be the boiler-plate wording — maybe others are better at reading the chicken guts than me, but a lot of people voted with their feet and other body parts.

    More than likely HR just copy/paste an old job description.

    You’ll notice it says Final Cut Studio, NOT Final Cut PRO studio. Don’t know about studio, but everything internally calls FCP X “Final Cut” not final cut pro. Preferences, event folders, project folders etc. So I’d say the omission of the word PRO actually gives some legitimacy that it’s for the current iteration. By studio, they probably just mean the suite of apps – X, Motion, and Compressor. Which are pretty integrated. Except for the lack of “send to motion” which they dearly need to compete. In fact, a little more autodesk like integration with motion or a version of the app called FCP extreme 🙂 with motion stuff built in would be interesting.

    What I find disconcerting about these ads is that the people they’re looking for are most likely an employee at autodesk or adobe or avid or somewhere pretty obvious. I would think searches for people like this would be a bit more private and behind the scenes.

    [Bret Williams] “You’ll notice it says Final Cut Studio, NOT Final Cut PRO studio.”

    It was always called Final Cut Studio. There was never a Final Cut Pro Studio.

    My software:
    Pro Maintenance Tools – Tools to keep Final Cut Studio, Final Cut Pro X, Avid Media Composer and Adobe Premiere Pro running smoothly and fix problems when they arise
    Pro Media Tools – Edit QuickTime chapters and metdata, detect gamma shifts, edit markers, watch renders and more
    More tools…

    Final Cut Studio? Wonder what Apple has in their pile of cards, perhaps an ace high with four kings.

    I agree that “Final Cut Studio” is probably an internal Apple phrase for the suite of stuff they make, and perhaps are developing, to work with FCPX. Selling the pieces a la carte will likely remain the model. One of the reasons for bundling in legacy was a way to justify the $999 price. With the new apps going for the price of plug-ins, what is the point of selling an expensive bundle and scaring off the hard-won “editing for everyone else” market?
