Apple Final Cut Pro X update allows third-party apps and services
Apple has released a new update for its professional video editing software, Final Cut Pro X, which will now allow users to use third-party apps and services inside the software along with many new features. The update is currently available on the Mac App Store for the consumers to download. Final Cut Pro X is priced at Rs 24,900 on the app store.
The company has stated that all the third-party Workflow extensions match the look of Final Cut Pro and integrate themselves directly into the app. This allows video editors to drag their media directly into libraries and at the same time sync playback between the third-party extensions and timeline.
These new third-party Workflow extensions include review and approval with Frame.io, stock footage browsing and purchasing with Shutterstock and media asset management with CatDV. Users can download all these Workflow extensions free of cost directly from the Mac App Store. The company has said they will be increasing the number of third-party extensions for Final Cut Pro as time passes.
Apple has also updated its motion graphics companion to Final Cut Pro, dubbed Motion adding a comprehensive set of colour-grading tools and custom LUTs. The advanced encoding companion, Compressor now comes with support for a 64-bit engine, which allows the software to use all of the user’s Mac memory for providing a much better output.
The Motion and Compressor companion apps can be purchased on the Mac App Store for Rs 3,999 and Rs 3,999, respectively. User’s who have already purchased these softwares can simply head to the App Store and get the free update.
