Final Cut Express 4

Today Apple announced the release of Final Cut Express 4.

New features include:

What’s even more interesting with this release is that Apple has now knocked the price of FCE down to $199 (from the $299 it previously sold for).

Final Cut Express 4 is available now on Apple’s site.
