released an update to Final Cut Pro, the company’s professional digital video editing software. The new version, 3.0.1, is ready for download from Apple’s Web site.
The update corrects a problem that is manifested on some dual-processor Macs, which could unexpectedly quit when Final Cut Pro 3.0 was installed on Mac OS X.
Also, Final Cut Pro 3.0 could unexpectedly quit when opened if the Internet System Preference pane contained only partial information — this problem will occur on either single or dual-processor Macs. The updater prevents that problem from happening (and Apple added that it doesn’t add info to the Internet System Preference pane).
The 6.6MB update is now available for download. Separate downloads exist depending on which version of Final Cut Pro 3 you’re trying to update: the Retail and Upgrade versions; Not For Resale (NFR) copies; Academic; or Academic Lab version.
