Apple has released Final Cut Pro X 10.1.1 with a handful of bug fixes and refinements. Final Cut Pro X 10.1.1 now preserves media files if an external volume is disconnected while consolidating a library. The update also resolves an issue loading content into the Music and Sound Browser, as well as a stability issue when applying a Motion effect with Scroll Text behavior. Performance improvements include faster switching between proxy and original/optimized media and improved Timeline responsiveness with very large projects.
