Apple has launched a significant update to Final Cut Pro, its flagship professional non-linear video editing app. Companion apps Compressor andMotion have also received updates. This marks the 15th free update to FCP since Apple’s radical re-do of the app in mid-2011. It comes, as do many high-profile video app updates — at the annual convention of the National Association of Broadcasters in Las Vegas.
Final Cut Pro, now at version 10.2, tackles a number of video features such as 3D titles, a range of advanced effects involving color and masking, additional support for key camera formats, an assortment of new features designed to enhance workflow and, of course, many bugs squashed in the process.
