I really hoped for a first revision of FCPX at IBC. After they showed at NAB was they showed in February and bsically sold us exactly that, I hoped for some bug fixes by now and also some promised features in the “summer-update”.
Kinda disappointed and wondering if anyone heard anything?
I was over-optimistic about a hot British summer this year, but with regards to FCPX I would like to think ‘the longer the wait, the bigger the up-date.’ Apple can’t have failed to notice the increase in Production Premium sales.
While I don’t expect Apple to announce anything at IBC, I do wonder if they’ll be any closed door meetings/discussions.
It’s critical that Apple resolve certain bugs and get the APIs out the door for the plugin developers. I suspect Apple has run into delays with this. This may well have impacted Apple’s update schedule.
We’ll see what happens when the Fall Equinox passes and whether there’s either release or Apple acknowledges a delay if such were to happen.
I don’t doubt they were originally expecting to release an earlier bug fix only update but, given the reaction in the post community, doing that may well have resulted in another round on negative feedback due to a lack of feature updates/improvements. My hunch is that the first feature updates will be included in the bug fixes.
The Equinox will inform us and any leads about private meetings with either developers or certain facility managers.
