CUPERTINO, California, USA — Today Apple® released the Final Cut Pro® X v10.0.3, a significant update to its revolutionary professional video editing application, which features multi cam editing that automatically syncs up to 64 angles of video and photos. This introduces advanced chrome keying for handling complex adjustments. This includes an enhanced XML for a richer interchange with third party apps and plug-ins that support the fast growing Final Cut Pro X ecosystem. This will be 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.
Final Cut Pro X v10.0.3 includes a collection of groundbreaking new tools for editing multi cam projects. Final Cut Pro X automatically syncs clips from your shoot using audio waveforms, time and date, or time code to create a Multi cam Clip with up to 64 angles of video. This includes mixed formats, frame sizes and frame rates. The powerful Angle Editor allows you to dive into your Multi cam Clip to make precise adjustments while the Angle Viewer lets you play back multiple angles at the same time and seamlessly cuts between them.
Final Cut Pro X builds upon its robust, one-step chrome key with advanced controls including color sampling, edge adjustment and light wrap. You can tackle complex keying challenges with the Final Cut Pro X, without having to purchase a motion graphics application, and view your results instantly with real time playback.
Since its launch seven months ago, the third party ecosystem around Final Cut Pro X has expanded dramatically. XML-compatible software like DaVinci Resolve and CatDV provide tight integration for tasks such as color correction and media management. The new 7toX app from Intelligent Assistance uses XML to import Final Cut Pro 7 projects into Final Cut Pro X. In addition, some of the industry’s largest visual effects developers, including GenArts and Red Giant, have developed motion graphics plug-ins that take advantage of the speed and real-time preview capabilities of Final Cut Pro X.
Broadcast monitoring in Final Cut Pro X is currently in beta and allows you to connect to waveform displays, vectorscopes, and calibrated, high-quality monitors to ensure that your project meets broadcast specifications. Final Cut Pro X supports the monitoring of video and audio through Thunderbolt I/O devices, as well as through third party PCIe cards.
