Apple Puts Final Cut Studio Back on Sale

Apple has put the previous version of Final Cut Studio, their popular editing suite, back on sale effective immediately. After a mixed reception to the new and significantly redesigned Final Cut X, Apple issued a memo this afternoon announcing the re-availability of the product. Final Cut Studio is again available for $999 (and $899 for educational customers), but not in retail stores, the new App Store, or anywhere on the web; it must be ordered via the 800-number.

Final Cut Studio includes Final Cut Pro 7, Motion 4, Soundtrack Pro 3, DVD Studio Pro 4, Color 1.5 and Compressor 3.5.

Apple had discontinued the product at the launch of Final Cut Pro X, their next generation video editing suite, but critics of the new product had complained vigorously at the abrupt discontinuation of the previous version.

Somewhere MacGyver is smiling.
