Apple's Final Cut Pro X reinvents video editing Apple

Apple has announced the immediate availability of Final Cut Pro X, a professionals-focused video editing software with jaw dropping features, via the Mac App Store.

Built on a modern 64-bit architecture, it is a brand new version of the Pro video editing software. Video editors may download it from the Mac App Store for $299.99.

“Final Cut Pro X is the biggest advance in Pro video editing since the original Final Cut Pro,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing, in a press release. “We have shown it to many of the world’s best Pro editors, and their jaws have dropped.”

Some of the top features in Final Cut pro X are:

Magnetic Timeline:

At the heart of Final Cut Pro X is the Magnetic Timeline, which will allow editors add and organize clips however they want them in a flexible and trackless way. Clip Connections will come in handy in linking story clips to other elements such as tiles and sound effects keeping the clips in perfect sync. While Compound Clip lets editors combine related clips into a single unit, Auditions feature will compare the alternate takes to swap between multiple clips.

Content Auto-Analysis:

Another impressive feature includes Content Auto-Analysis. It can categorize contents and helps editors locate the clips by shot type (close up, medium, or wide shots), media type, and the number of people in the shot.

Background rendering:

Another key feature includes background processes. Now with this, editors never have to wait for the next edit, even if they’re working with 4K video. Blazing fast background rendering and real-time playback performance enables saving a great deal of time in editing large projects. Additionally, color consistency from import to output is ensured by the ColorSync-managed color pipeline.

Along with the revolutionary Final Cut Pro X, App Store released two other companion apps, Motion 5 for professional motion graphics and Compressor 4 for advanced media encoding, available from the Mac App Store for $49.99 each.
