Apple issues minor updates for Final Cut Pro and iMovie

Apple on Thursday released a pair of updates for Final Cut Pro and iMovie, addressing a handful of problems and improving the overall stability and performance of both video editing apps.




Final Cut Pro version 10.3.4 resolves an issue that presented itself when keyboard shortcuts are used to trim Secondary Storylines, according to release notes supplied alongside the release.

The update also fixes issues that result in the introduction of extra audio fade ins when conducting certain editing operations, as well as incorrectly displaying a codec warning in the share dialog.

The latest major release of Final Cut Pro arrived last year with the introduction of version 10.3, which debuted a refreshed user interface designed specifically for Apple's new MacBook Pro with Touch Bar. In particular, the app now offers Touch Bar access to editing tools, audio adjustment sliders, clip scrubbing functionality and more.

As for iMovie, today's version 10.1.6 update improves stability when updating libraries created with older versions of the software, Apple says. The release also fixes a bug that in some cases could lower the volume of clips after applying a transition.

Like Final Cut Pro, iMovie received its most recent major update last year with the addition of Touch Bar compatibility.

Apple last updated Final Cut Pro and iMovie in April with minor bug fixes and performance improvements.

Final Cut Pro is available from the Mac App Store for $299.99, while iMovie sells for $14.99 for users with older hardware.
