    Apple releases Final Cut Pro X 10.0.2


    MacRumors reports today that Apple has suddenly decided to start selling the previous version of Final Cut Studio that it had earlier withdrawn from sale. The replacement, Final Cut Pro X, was far from universally popular, because of some missing Final Cut Pro 7 components, according to 9to5 Mac. Apple had promised to solve the various niggles that customers had brought up about the new version by updating various features by the end of the summer, but as this has not yet happened, maybe it just decided to make the old version available again to keep everyone happy until it can make changes. According to MacRumors, Apple issued a memo today announcing that it was back on sale again, and an Apple telesales rep also confirmed the news. The product, number MB642Z/A, can only be obtained via the 800-MY-APPLE number, and will not be available in any Apple stores, either Retail or Online. It will set you back $999 ($899 for educational customers).

    And talking of online, 9to5 Mac also points out that Apple has just opened a new area in the Mac App Store called “Apps Enhanced for Lion,” which features, well, apps enhanced for Lion, as you might expect!

    Apple Scrapped Completed 64-Bit Final Cut Pro 8 to Build Final Cut Pro X?





    Following the release of Final Cut Pro X back in June, Apple received a significant amount of criticism from users unhappy with the direction the company had taken with the professional-level video editing software and the many features that had gone missing in the revamp. The outcry resulted in Apple posting an FAQ on the situation and promising that updates to increase the software's functionality would be coming.

    fcp.co now points (via Cult of Mac) to a recent interview with RHED Pixel founder Richard Harrington in which he claims that Apple had completed work on a new 64-bit Final Cut Pro 8 product before scrapping the software to build the revamped Final Cut Pro X. According to Harrington:
    There was a Final Cut 8 and it was 64bit and it was done and they looked at it and said 'This is not what we want to do, this is evolutionary, this is not revolutionary' and they killed it.
    Curiously, the video of Harrington's interview was removed from public view after his comment was publicized by fcp.co.

    The report notes there has been no corroborating evidence of a finished Final Cut Pro 8 product, but also that there is no reason to disbelieve Harrington and that it does not appear that the comment has been taken out of context.

    Update: Harrington did note in a Tweet that the comment was misunderstood and that he had merely "heard efforts were well underway then killed". He did also comment on the fcp.co article:
    I do not have explicit knowledge of FCP8. Wasn't saying I did. Wasn't implying I did.

    Just repeating rumors I had heard multiple times. I had been told many times that there were efforts to bring 64 bit to the type of interface used in FCP7.
    Harrington's backtracking conflicts with what fcp.co's thought was a clear interpretation, but it does appear that "Final Cut Pro 8" was not nearly in as finished a form as had been initially thought from his statement.

    Final Cut Pro X Gets Big Update With New Multicam Editing Tools


    Apple has today announced that it has released a significant update for Final Cut Pro X, its revolutionary professional video editing application. The new, free, update introduces multicam editing that automatically syncs up to 64 angles of videos and photos, as well as advanced chroma keying for handling complex adjustments 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. The update also includes a beta of broadcast monitoring that supports Thunderbolt devices as well as PCIe cards.


    To go into a little more detail about the new tools for editing multicam projects, Apple says that Final Cut Pro X with the update automatically syncs clips from your shoot with 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. The powerful Angle Editor lets you dive into your Multicam Clip so that you can make precise adjustments, and the Angle Viewer enables you to play back multiple angles simultaneously and cut seamlessly between them. The new, advanced chroma key controls include colour sampling, edge adjustment and light wrap.

    If you like the sound of all that, you can download Final Cut Pro X for $299.99 from the Mac App Store: Mac App Store - Final Cut Pro

    You can also get a 30-day free trial here: Apple - Final Cut Pro X - Trial

    Final Cut Pro X to support RED cameras, multichannel audio

    Apple tells videographer FCPX 2012 plans




    Pro videographer Larry Jordan published a preview on Sunday of Final Cut Pro X updates that Apple had promised him would come later in 2012. The current editing app should soon get RED camera support, letting it handle Redcode-capable 4K and 5K cameras like the Scarlet-X without transcoding first. Multichannel audio editing will be added to the pro video tool as well, although how this would work wasn't explained.

    More additions would start off with Dual Viewers, a feature that would be equivalent to having separate Record and Source models in a traditional setup; Apple hoped improve on how others had handled it in the past, Jordan understood. Along with RED cameras, FCPX would simultaneously recognize the MXF format of Sony's XDCAM line natively, again dropping the need to transcode first and risk losing image quality.

    In providing the preview, Apple stressed that it was fully supporting FCPX and wanted videographers to consider it a pro app. It also hinted that there might be another companion app beyond Compressor or Motion, although Jordan couldn't glean more information.

    Following stiff early criticism, Apple has been aggressively rolling features into FCPX, some of which were features that had been in FCP7 but had been taken out with the complete remake. Among these had been multi-camera support that many movie and TV producers consider vital. Adobe has been hoping to capitalize on Apple's pro video reboot and just previewed Premiere Pro CS6 to add features such as greater-than-HD video support.

    Apple Releases Major Final Cut Pro X Update with Dual Viewers, Multichannel Audio Too

    In April, Apple even revealed many features that could be expected in Final Cut Pro X in 2012. These included Multichannel Audio Editing Tools, Dual Viewers, MXF Plug-in Support and RED camera support.

    That version update was released today and includes a number of long awaited features:

    • 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 in the Mac App Store for $299.99. The 10.0.6 update is free for current customers. [Mac App Store]

    Apple confirms new version of Final Cut Pro X coming alongside new Mac Pro later year




    Yesterday’s unveiling of the all-new Mac Pro at Apple’s WWDC keynote certainly made up for the fact that we didn’t see any updates to Apple’s pro apps like we we’re hoping. However, you might have missed Phil Schiller’s rather quick confirmation that a new version of Final Cut Pro X is indeed coming later this year:

    “The Final Cut Pro team is hard at work on a version of Final Cut Pro X that will support all the performance and graphic capabilities of this machine” – Phil Schiller during Apple’s unveiling of the new Mac Pro at WWDC 2013.

    Schiller didn’t go into specific features that we’ll be seeing in the new version, but support for the new Mac Pro means support for the machine’s dual workstation GPUs and AMD FirePro Graphics, something that many other pro apps will need to update in order to support. We also know the new Mac Pro will support multiple streams of 4K displays for support for up to three 4K displays (as pictured above).

    With Apple’s recent campaign to win back skeptical pro users to Final Cut Pro X, we’d imagine the new version of Final Cut Pro X coming later this year will also include a number of other features that pros have been missing since Apple scaled back the software’s feature set with a new design two years ago.

    Speaking of those new Mac Pros, it looks like some pros are already having doubts about Apple’s new direction for its pro lineup. A post on netkas.org points out that the new Mac Pro appears to only allow for upgradable memory and disk, making it much closer to a Mac Mini in terms of customization compared to the highly upgradeable designs of previous generation Mac Pros. Of course, there’s a lot we don’t know about the machine yet, and we’ll have to wait to get our hands on it to be sure of its limitations.

    Plus it is much closer in lineage to the Mac Cube anyway.
