Apple updates Final Cut Pro X

Though not announced during its big October event, Apple also included Final Cut Pro X in its list of apps that the company updated yesterday. The latest version (10.0.6) of the video editing software now supports native RAW editing of content from RED cameras, lets you expand multichannel audio files so you can edit each audio channel separately and adds a paste attributes window that lets you choose specific effects to copy between clips. These are only a few examples from a long list of new features that were added to the video editing package. The full change log includes:

  • Expand multichannel audio files directly in the timeline for precise editing of individual audio channels
  • Unified import window for transferring media from both file-based cameras and folders of files
  • Redesigned Share interface for exporting projects and range selections to one or more destinations
  • RED camera support with native REDCODE RAW editing and optional background transcode to Apple ProRes
  • MXF plug-in support that allows you to work natively with MXF files from import through delivery using third-party plug-ins
  • Dual viewers, each with a video scope display, let you compare shots to match action and color
  • Option to add chapter markers in the timeline for export to video files, DVD and Blu-ray disc
  • Range selection now preserves start and end points in the Event Browser and allows you to create multiple range selections on a single clip
  • Paste attributes window lets you choose specific effects to copy between clips
  • Flexible Clip Connections allow you to keep Connected Clips in place when slipping, sliding or moving clips in the Primary Storyline
  • Add a freeze frame to your timeline with a single keystroke
  • Drop shadow effect with intuitive onscreen controls to adjust position, edge falloff, angle and more
  • New controls for combining audio from multiple angles within a Multicam Clip
  • Compound Clip creation in the timeline now saves the clip in the Event Browser for re-use in other projects
  • XML 1.2 featuring metadata import and export for richer integration with third-party apps

Final Cut Pro X is available for US$299 in the Mac App Store.
