Yesterday Apple announced a new upgrade for their controversial video editing software, Final Cut Pro X. Most professionals would say that any and all upgrades come as a welcomed improvement on the not-quite-industry-standard program. Here are some of the improvements that you can look forward to with the new updates:
Yesterday’s upgrade release promises new multi-camera editing features to enhance Final Cut Pro X. According to the press release, the new version will be capable of syncing up to 64 different camera angles all in one timeline. The software will use, audio waveform, date and time stamps and time code to automatically line up all of the different angles, regardless of differences in frame rate or picture quality.
One Step Chroma Key
Apple has also made improvements on Final Cut Pro X’s one step chroma key feature. The new upgrade claims to make this tool even more functional by adding advanced controls like color sampling, edge adjustment and light wrap. They claim that the new features give you enough creative and technical control to eliminate the need to ever run a chroma key project through an outside motion graphics software like Adobe After Effects or Apple Motion.

New Apps Support FCPX
Apple is excited to remind us that third party applications have worked hard to create products that will work seamlessly with the Final Cut Pro X interface. A new app called 7toX allows users to import projects from Final Cut Pro 7 into the new Final Cut Pro X. DaVinci and CatDV have gotten on board by creating color correction tools for FCPX, while GenArts and Red Giant have made efforts to create more motion graphics plug ins for the latest Apple software.
