According to YouTuber and filmmaker Matti Haapoja, Final Cut Pro will be available for the Apple Vision Pro at launch — but it's not clear exactly how.
On Monday, Apple announced Vision Pro, a mixed-reality headset that marks Apple's official entrance into the AR/VR market. One of the largest selling features is the ability to work in a virtual space with a series of digital "monitors."
The announcement profiled a number of apps, including Mail, TV, Safari, and Freeform. However, according to Matti Haapoja, Final Cut Pro will also be available for Vision Pro — at launch.
I just tried Apple Vision Pro and it's gonna completely change filmmaking, storytelling and content creation.— Matti Haapoja (@MattiHaapoja) June 6, 2023
I've never experienced that sort of presence, feeling like I'm there in the scene.
It's currently unclear how this would be accomplished. During Monday's presentation, a video showed a creative working on Final Cut Pro via a Mac window.
However, it is possible that the Vision Pro could use the iPadOS version of Final Cut Pro, or perhaps even a standalone version designed specifically for the device.
In May, Apple released Final Cut Pro and Logic Pro for the iPad. Users are able to purchase a subscription to either app for $4.99 per month or $49 per year.
