Last year, Apple released a brand new version of Final Cut Pro called “Final Cut Pro X.” When it was first released, the company was receiving a lot of criticism for the lack of features. As a temporary solution, Apple posted a FAQ in response to the criticism and questions from customers. Then later on, Apple promised that it would address the criticism in a future update. Finally, that day has come. Today, Apple has released Final Cut Pro X v10.0.3, which is a significant update to the video editing application. This update addresses some of the customers’ criticism.
Apple today released Final Cut Pro X v10.0.3, a significant update to its revolutionary professional video editing application, which introduces multicam editing that automatically syncs up to 64 angles of video and photos; advanced chroma keying for handling complex adjustments right in the app; and enhanced XML for a richer interchange with third party apps and plug-ins that support the fast growing Final Cut Pro X ecosystem. Available today as a free update from the Mac App Store, Final Cut Pro X v10.0.3 also includes a beta of broadcast monitoring that supports Thunderbolt devices as well as PCIe cards.
One feature that was requested was multicam editing, and this update offers that once again. Apple says the software automatically syncs clips from a shoot using audio waveforms, time and date, or timecode to create a Multicam Clip with up to 64 angles of video, which can include mixed formats, frame sizes and frame rates. In addition, a customizable Angle Editor lets you use the Multicam Clip to make precise adjustments, including playing back multiple angles at the same time to seamlessly cut between them. AppleInsider offers a more detailed look on what the new update has to offer.
