What macrumors said

There's more at the macrumors post

ProVideoCoalition claims to have heard rumors that Apple is planning to use the Final Cut Pro User Group SuperMeet to announce the next version of Final Cut Pro.
Philip Bloom just confirmed with me that Canon has canceled his appearance at the Supermeet. Canon was told last night that Apple has demanded ALL lecturn or stage time exclusively. Some sponsors who were not using presenters may continue to sponsor the Vegas event, but none of them will be presenting on the stage.

The post goes on to talk about other sponsors including Avid that have had their sponsorship canceled for the event.


Philip Bloom confirms

Here's where Philip Bloom confirmed that he's been booted:

Afraid I won't now be speaking at the #supermeet next Tuesday at #nab. Hopefully something big will be announced there by Apple instead #fb

So… looks exciting but we'll let you know for sure next Tuesday!

  1. Why was Avid sponsoring a FCPUG meeting?

    Let’s hope the new FCS is jaw dropping as the rumors say it is!

    Native h.264 editing?
    Motion and Shake merge?
    $10 says they kill or do nothing with DVDSP…

  2. I’m sure all sponsors were taken for a ride with all of this.
