Apple has revved Final Cut Pro, its high-end video editing system to version 2.0.2. It now works under Macintosh Manager, an integrated and secure interface, designed to make AppleShare servers easy to use. With the update, trimming numerically in the Trim Edit window no longer stops playback. There are also various bug fixes.
Version 2.0.2 fixes a known issue where 32kHz audio files sounded distorted in a 48kHz sequence. It resolves a problem where Browser items could not be renamed with the Browser in icon modes. And it addresses a known problem with the Audio Meter window that could result in Final Cut Pro quitting unexpectedly if the computer has more than 1GB of RAM.
Final Cut Pro 2.0.2 requires a Power Mac G3/300 MHz system or better, Mac OS 9.1 or 9.2 (a Mac OS X version is in the works), QuickTime 5.0 or higher, Final Cut Pro 2.x, and at least 192MB RAM. You can download the updater (a 1.4 M file) from
