Even as Apple starts issuing refunds to developers angry that Final Cut Pro X leaves out some of the features upon which they depend most, new evidence suggests that those must-have features are already in Final Cut Pro X’s source code, just waiting to be turned on.

Namely, MacMagazine has found that the code for importing Final Cut Pro XML is already present in Final Cut Pro X. If you’re interested and feeling brave, they even have a way to turn it on.

It’s mystifying that Apple chose not to turn that feature on for Final Cut Pro X’s launch, but it does at least inspire hope that Apple fully intends to make Final Cut Pro X as full-featured as previous versions of the software in fast order.
