While the world’s attention was on Tim Cook and Phil Schiller on stage announcing the latest Apple hardware this morning, engineers back at the main campus were busy updating Final Cut Pro X.
The 10.0.6 release of Final Cut Pro X, earlier today, is probably the most extensive update to the program since its initial release; with the 10.0.3 release coming in second.
Here is Apple’s announcement:
Here is a great initial review from Philip Hodgetts:
We are already at work creating new video training on all the new features – it will be out as an update to our existing Final Cut Pro X training later this month.
When I met with Apple at the NAB Show last April, they promised four new features would be added to Final Cut Pro X before the end of the year:
Apple delivered on all their promises with this release. And much more…
I’m looking forward to sharing all these new features with you in both articles and video training. For now, it is great to know that Final Cut Pro X continues to improve in ways that benefit all of us.
It is exciting seeing all the new hardware that Apple announced today. Keep in mind, however, that the new gear does not contain internal SuperDrives and the iMacs don’t contain FireWire ports.
This means that for all of us with FireWire hard disks, we will need to get converters from FireWire to either USB 3 or Thunderbolt. I don’t have a recommendation for a product or brand, but I suspect these will quickly become available shortly after the new hardware starts shipping.
By the way, I am very impressed with the specs to the new iMac and will be adding the 27″ iMac into our editing bays when it ships in December.
As always, I’m interested in your opinions.
NEW & Updated!
