Apple Computer has released a Final Cut Studio 2.0.1 update to include fixes, more hardware support and AVCHD log and tansfer support. Early reports from the blogosphere, including professional video editors, have noted that the first shipping version Final Cut Studio 2 had a few issues. Most notably, stability issues pertaining to the new Apple Color application, which this update should help to improve. We're mostly excited, however, with the inclusion of AVCHD log and transfer support, which will give users more options with camcorder choices.
