Final Cut Pro X 10.0.4

Send Article to a Friend

Apple has released Final Cut Pro X 10.0.4, a minor update to the professional video editor with a grab bag of tweaks and fixes. The release improves both responsiveness and quality of broadcast monitoring when using compatible third-party PCIe and Thunderbolt I/O devices as well as multicam syncing and editing. Fixes include a problem with superimposing a video over a background with an alpha channel that would render differently before and after in the Viewer, plus an issue with re-rendering titles after application launch. The update also adds a sharing option for 1080p video on compatible iOS devices, includes multicam metadata in XML project export, and assigns stereo as the default audio channel setting for new projects. ($299.99 new in the Mac App Store, free update, 1.38 GB, release notes)
