Wednesday night wound up being a particularly crazy time for tech news as the Comcast-Time Warner deal (more on that in a moment) vied for attention with word that Motorola CEO Dennis Woodside has found a new home with Dropbox, where he will hold the position of Chief Operating Officer.

While most of the news about Final Cut Pro X in recent months has been focused on companies abandoning the platform for rival Adobe Premiere Pro, Apple has continued to deliver improvements, including a laundry list of changes this week.

Professional video editors who have been patiently waiting for substantial improvements to Final Cut Pro X had that patience rewarded on Tuesday, with a point update that brings back features such as multicam and broadcast monitoring. But that isn’t all of the news, as a third-party developer releases a pair of tools for allowing FCPX to play nice with its legacy version as well. There’s even more on deck for this fine Tuesday, January 31, 2012 as well...
Three months ago, Apple debuted their new vision for Final Cut Pro X, a radical departure from the legacy application that has dominated the professional market for some time. Now, on the heels of Adobe luring away customers to its own Premiere Pro solution, Cupertino fires back with the first update, adding back two critical features lost in the transition.
As rumored just last week, Apple has officially released Final Cut Pro X to the Mac App Store as promised back in April -- and it’s not alone. The company is also releasing Motion 5 and Compressor 4 at the record-low price of $49.99 each.
