Apple has updated Final Cut Pro X to version 10.0.3, a minor version number adjustment that doesn’t properly convey the scope of significant changes to the professional video editor. Introduced to controversy last year, Final Cut Pro X 10.0 was a ground-up rewrite that lacked capabilities found in Final Cut Pro 7. Now, this third minor update restores some of those features. Multicam editing tops the list, with support for up to 64 camera angles (Apple’s Top Features page offers an impressive video of how multicam works, including automatic synchronization using the tracks’ audio). Also new are advanced chroma keying controls, a media relink feature to reconnect projects and events to new media, the capability to open layered Photoshop files directly, a beta version of broadcast monitoring with third-party PCIe and Thunderbolt devices, and more. Now we’ll see if pros who shunned Final Cut Pro X at first reconsider the app for future projects. ($299.99 new, free update, 1.37 GB, release notes)
