Apple Updates Final Cut Pro XBy: Shaylin Clark - January 31, 2012
Apple has released a free update to their powerful and popular Final Cut Pro X video editing software. Final Cut Pro X 10.0.3 adds several new features, most notably the ability to sync and edit up to 64 different angles for photos and video. The multicam feature syncs multiple video clips using audio waveform matching, as well as time and date information stored in the videos’ metadata. An angle editor allows precise adjustments, and the angle viewer allows users to view multiple angles simultaneously and cut to them seamlessly.
The update also includes a beta of broadcast monitoring. This feature allows connection to a variety of display and monitoring equipment and allows users to ensure that their videos meet broadcast standards. Apple has also expanded Final Cut Pro X’s support for third party apps and plug-ins.
The app is free for users who have already purchased Final Cut Pro X. It can be downloaded from the Mac App Store. A 30-day trial is available for users who want to try the software out. It retails for $299.99.
