Final Cut Studio Updates Available -- Apple's professional line of video editing applications saw updates last week to fix bugs and improve performance. Final Cut Pro 5.0.2, DVD Studio Pro 4.0.1, and Soundtrack Pro 1.0.1 are each available as separate downloads. If you own the entire Final Cut Studio (which also includes Motion 2), you can download a 46 MB updater that applies the fixes to each affected program. [JLC]
