Apple updates pro-level video suite with fixes for Final Cut Pro X, Compressor and MotionApple on Tuesday rolled out a point update for its Final Cut Pro for Mac professional level video editing software including a bug fix for Blu-ray handling, which was also applied to new versions of Compressor and Motion.
While the most pressing issue appears to be reliability issues when burning a Blu-ray disc or creating a disk image, Final Cut Pro version 10.1.3 also brings a few minor changes in clip and data handling, XML imports and automatic library backups, among other enhancements.
The latest Final Cut Pro allows color corrections pasted between two or more clips to be retained during a Share operation, adds support for effects applied to clips in the Browser of prior FCP versions to be retained when added to the timeline and correctly imports XML round-trips when using gap clips.
In addition, reliability of automatic library backups has been improved for a safer workflow, while stability has been enhanced for paging through growing files in the Browser.
As for file output and encoding app Compressor and special effects tool Motion, Apple brings both up to speed with today's FCP Blu-ray enhancements.
Existing users can grab all three updates as free downloads from the Mac App Store, while new users may purchase Final Cut Pro for $299.99, while Compressor and Motion go for $49.99 each.
