Apple updates Final Cut Pro X with minor bug fixes
Apple on Tuesday pushed out a minor update for its premiere video editing tool Final Cut Pro X, addressing library and Paste Attributes issues, among other feature fixes.
Final Cut Pro X version 10.3.1 brings a trio of resolutions targeting file handling and user interface issues, as well as a peculiar image cropping bug apparently tied to system language settings, according to Apple's release notes.
Of note, the latest Final Cut Pro X iteration fixes an issue that presented images incorrectly when Spanish or Spanish (Mexico) was selected as the preferred language in Language & Region System Preference. Those affected by the bug saw some images appear cropped in the app's viewer.
A second issue proved more urgent for a wider swath of Apple's customer base. In particular, some users ran into trouble when using the Paste Attributes tool to copy color correction tweaks between clips. Color correction is an important and often mandatory step in basic NLE workflows.
The update also addressed a minor problem tied to updating file libraries.
Today's update comes one month after Apple released Final Cut Pro X 10.3 with new features and a revamped user interface designed to take advantage of the company's new MacBook Pro with Touch Bar hardware. Specifically, the latest FCPX iteration brings editing tool selection, audio adjustment sliders, clip scrubbing — prominently featured in subsequent MacBook Pro TV spots — and more to the Touch Bar.
Final Cut Pro X version 10.3.1 is available as a free download for existing customers, while new users can purchase the video editing suite from the Mac App Store for $299.99.
