Apple will launch the new version of Final Cut Pro at the FCP User Group Supermeet, a side event of the National Association of Broadcasters that takes place in Las Vegas next week, according to reports.

Macworld reported in February that Apple was expected to launch the new version of Final Cut Pro in April.

Now Steve Hullfish of the Pro Video Coalition is reporting that Apple is taking over the entire meeting, with sponsor such as AJA, Avid, Canon, BlackMagic and Autodesk forced to cancel their presentations.

The Supermeet website has recently added the message: "The Final Cut Pro User Group Network is excited to have a very special guest presentation at the 10th Annual Las Vegas FCPUG SuperMeet. Come to see a surprise sneak peek at something very special - you really do not want to miss this one!"

It is rumoured that among the changes in the new version of Final Cut Pro will be a complete redesign of the UI, and it will also be 64-bit.

High-profile FCP trainer Larry Jordan wrote in a blog post back in February that he had seen the new version of Final Cut Pro.

"Last week, Apple invited a few folks, including me, to a short meeting in Cupertino where they previewed the up-coming version of Final Cut Pro. While I am under NDA and can’t talk about what I saw, I can tell you the meeting happened and that it showcased the new Final Cut Pro," Jordan wrote.
