Final Cut Pro 6.03 ships

Ahead of next week's NAB conference, Apple on Thursday released its updates to its professional video editing applications with Pro Applications Update 2008-01. The company said that the update, which includes the Apple HDV Codec v1.4 for 4:2:2 support in Final Cut Pro, improves reliability for Apple's professional applications; it is recommended for all users of Final Cut Studio, Final Cut Server, Logic Studio, and Shake and includes an update to Final Cut Studio 2.0, including Final Cut Pro 6.0.3, Compressor 3.0.3--both of which address specific customer issues, installation issues, compatibility updates, general performance issues and improves overall stability. It is a 63.7MB download.

According to the release notes, the Final Cut Pro 6.03 brings XDCAM HD422 format support, fixes an issue when opening some FCP projects; resolves an image aspect ratio problem when exporting to video formats to Apple TV, iPhone or iPod devices; correctly uses the aspect ratio of the individual clip (versus the overall sequence) when using multiple filters in a mixed sequence; improves XML support with support for filenames with slashes; and more.

Compressor 3.03 now includes options to create media files for Apple TV with anamorphic (non-square) pixel aspect ratios by adding an item to the Device pop-up menu of the H.264 for Apple Devices Encoder pane: Apple TV SD (Anamorphic). In addition, the updates allows editors to include Dolby Digital Professional (AC-3) tracks (with 5.1-channel surround sound) in output media files intended for Apple TV playback.
