Final Cut Pro X Now Available as Download from the Mac App Store

Apple's newest version of their Final Cut Pro software was just released today, built from the ground up for modern 64-bit Mac computers, capable of handling 4K video and featuring the new Magnetic Timeline. But this time around Apple is doing something totally different when it comes to sales, making Final Cut Pro X a download only program from the Mac App Store, meaning no more trips to the Apple Store and no more boxes and discs to keep track of—just purchase from the comfort of your own computer and start editing your next indie film masterpiece in minutes.

Final Cut Pro X costs $299.99 and like mentioned before, there is no boxed version, as well as no upgrade pricing or "Express" versions. Individual editors can purchase a single license copy for multiple machines, but businesses must purchase one per machine.
