Apple Launches ‘Significant’ Final Cut Pro X Update

The Cupertino-based tech giant has recently launched a ‘significant update’ for its Final Cut Pro X Max video editing software. The updates version features a host of new editing tools as well as beta support for broadcasting monitoring for Thunderbolt devices and PCIe cards.

The latest update also offers multicam editing that “automatically syncs up to 64 angles of video and photos,” also advanced chroma keying for handling complicated adjustments right in application and improved XML for a richer interchange with third party applications and plug-ins.

There is also present a new collection of tools for editing multicam projects, assisting to automatically sync clips from your video cameras with audio waveforms, time and date, or timecodes. It will enable users to develop “a Multicam Clip with up to 64 angles of video, which can include mixed formats, frame sizes and frame rates.”

Apple says:

The powerful Angle Editor allows you to dive into your Multicam Clip to make precise adjustments, and the Angle Viewer lets you play back multiple angles at the same time and seamlessly cut between them.

Final Cut Pro X builds upon its robust, one-step chroma key with the addition of advanced controls including color sampling, edge adjustment and light wrap. You can tackle complex keying challenges right in Final Cut Pro X, without having to export to a motion graphics application, and view your results instantly with realtime playback.

Although, the broadcast monitoring is released as a beta feature in Final Cut Pro X, it will still let users connect to waveform displays, vectorscopes and high-quality monitors so as to fulfill broadcast specifications.

The Final Cut Pro X, the famous video-editing tool was first launched back in June of last year on the Mac App Store with a price tag of $299.99/£179.99. The app showed a quick growth in the Mac App Store for the fact that users were so keen to have the app in just a few clicks.

But as soon as the new version of software was launched, the glory of the app was declined realiz9ing the fact that the new version of Final Cut Pro X wasn’t up to the mark, it didn’t support the older file-types, functions became complex and audio markers no longer worked as they were previously. It received a lot of furious reviews and negative rating in the Mac App Store.

Apple somehow managed to close the comments on the Mac App Store and started working on the reviews seriously. The company also issued refunds to users who had filed an official request using Apple’s Mac App Store Customer Service form.
