Final Cut Pro Studio Update from Apple is a major update to the professional-grade video and audio editing bundle, which includes the new Final Cut Pro 7, Motion 4, Soundtrack Pro 3, Color 1.5, Compressor 3.5, and DVD Studio Pro 4 (which hasn't been updated in four years!). Final Cut Pro 7 sees the addition of three new versions of the ProRes codec, which bring faster and higher-quality editing capabilities; support for burning projects to Blu-ray discs; and iChat Theater support to make sharing within collaborative efforts easier. Motion 4 adds three-dimensional shadows and reflections, new depth-of-field capabilities, and added text-titling tools. Soundtrack Pro 3 adds a new Voice Level matching option that enables users to ensure that voice levels are consistent throughout a project, an improved audio file editor with drag-and-drop capabilities, enhanced noise reduction tools, and new multi-track editing tools. A full list of changes is available via Apple's Final Cut Studio page. Apple also dropped the price tag by $300 and the upgrade fee by $200. ($999 new, $299 upgrade)

iPhoto2Twitter 1.5 from Blue Crowbar Software is the latest version of the iPhoto plug-in that lets you share your pictures via Twitter. The update extends the plug-in's sharing capabilities (previously it worked only with TwitPic, and could share only photos) to Mobypicture, an online service that enables you to upload photos and movies once, and then, from there, to share them across a wide swath of social media sites. Sites supported by Mobypicture include Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Flickr, Blogger, Vimeo, WordPress, LiveJournal, Tumblr, Jaiku, Hyves, and Brightkite. (4.95 euros, free update, 230 KB)

Sandvox 1.6.3 from Karelia Software is a maintenance update to the template-based Web site creation tool. The latest version provides full support for Safari 4 and Safari 4 WebKit and preliminary support for Snow Leopard. The update also fixes an issue that occurs when dragging documents directly into a Sandvox document to create new pages, enhances the content of the Movie Page RSS feeds, improves media handling, and rolls in the latest Karelia iMedia Browser framework. ($57 Regular/$97 Pro, free update, 26.4 MB)
