On the heels of a quiet update to its Time Capsule Wi-Fi base station and wireless storage device this morning, Apple has announced the release of Final Cut Pro X, its professional video editing software, and companion utility apps Motion 5 and Compressor 4 in the Mac App Store.

Final Cut Pro X is the biggest advance in Pro video editing since the original Final Cut Pro,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing. “We have shown it to many of the world’s best Pro editors, and their jaws have dropped.

Final Cut Pro X is now a 64-bit application for compatibility with the more recent computers made by Apple and requires Mac OS 10.6.7 or later on a Mac computer with an Intel Core 2 Duo processor or better.

Compressor  4 is a companion utility application that allows exceptional customization to Final Cut Pro X‘s export functionality while Motion 5 offers customization of the application’s titles, transitions, and effects.

Final Cut Pro X costs $299 while Compressor 4 and Motion 5 each cost $49.99. All three applications are available for purchase now in the Mac App Store.
