Earlier this year, Full Sail upgraded Project LaunchBox, the first-of-its-kind program that provides all enrolled students with their own MacBook Pro notebook computer and the software to help them create music, film, games, animation, and design projects. The change involved switching from Final Cut Pro 7 to Final Cut Pro X, which Computer Animation, Digital Arts & Design, Digital Cinematography, Film, Game Art, Graphic Design, Music Production, Recording Arts, and Show Production students receive as part of their LaunchBox. News of this upgrade was recently featured on Apple.com.
Apple's profile of Full Sail appeared on the Final Cut Pro X section of the company's website and included information about how the new version of the Final Cut software will benefit students. A reporter and photographer from Apple visited campus in early October to capture students utilizing the software. The upgraded Final Cut program allows for faster editing, more flexibility, and easier organization.
"One of the biggest benefits of this upgrade is that it exposes our students to a new editing system," says Bob Truett, Full Sail's Digital Cinematography Program Director. "Final Cut Pro X has created a new way of editing that's a bit different from all of the other systems, so our students are now on the forefront."
