Confirmed by MacRumors, Final Cut Studio can be purchased for $999 (or $899 for educational buyers). That’s the same price the suite was being sold for as of July 2009, but $700 more than its newer replacement, Final Cut Pro X. Final Cut Studio wasn’t just Final Cut Pro though—it included Final Cut Pro 7, Motion 4, Soundtrack Pro 3, DVD Studio Pro 4, Color 1.5 and Compressor 3.5, which was one of the many reasons why professional users were extremely irked at the abrupt changes and discontinuations. Add to that the plethora of complaints about the near complete lack of backwards compatibility and drastic UI changes between Final Cut Pro 7 and X, and pro users were practically waving pitchforks outside of 1 Infinite Loop.
