Apple has released Final Cut Pro 10.5, Compressor 4.5, and Motion 5.5 with a short list of improvements and bug fixes for the professional video editing apps. Final Cut Pro adds support for a new Universal RED plugin that enables native RED RAW decoding and playback on both M1-based and Intel-based Macs, while also improving stability when playing corrupt H.264 video files and when using AirPlay on M1-based Macs. It also fixes a bug that could cause text to disappear when double-clicking a value field in the inspector and resolves an issue that could prevent custom Motion titles stored inside the library from appearing in the Titles browser.
Compressor addresses an issue with an incorrect preview image when using the Timecode Generator effect and adds a new icon for captions in the batch area. Motion fixes a crash that would occur when undoing a reset of animated color curves and fixes a bug that rendered a black canvas after resetting keyframed Color Wheels. (Free updates.
