While doing various testing with Final Cut Express, we've noticed that Apple have finally added support for Full HD editing in Final Cut Express for the first time.

A very un-publicised 'feature' of FCE was that it did not support 1920x1080 video, but only went as high as 1440x1080 (the old Sony HDV standard for tape-based video cameras). Version 4.0.1 now includes new profiles (under Easy Setup) which go as high as 1920x1080.

This change was not publicised by Apple, obviously to hide the fact that FCE has not supported full HD editing all this time.

This is a welcome upgrade for the HD purists out there, so we thought that we'd let everyone know.
