Apple has updated two of its professional video editing apps — Final Cut Pro X 10.2.1 and Motion 5.2.1 — with maintenance releases. Final Cut Pro X restores support for Panasonic AVCCAM video at 25p and 30p and improves accuracy when dragging to select a range in the Timeline, while Motion fixes an issue that imported Photoshop files with an incorrect color profile. Both Final Cut Pro X and Motion fix a bug that could cause the apps to quit on launch. (Final Cut Pro, $299.99 new, 2.82 GB, release notes, 10.10.2+; Motion, $49.99 new, 2.20 GB, release notes, 10.10.2+; both titles available from the Mac App Store with free updates for previous purchases)
