Final Cut Pro X gets long-promised multicam editing update

updated 09:40 am EST, Tue January 31, 2012

Also upgrades chromakey tools

Apple has released Final Cut Pro X 10.0.3, an update to its professional video editing suite. The code makes the long-delayed addition of multicam editing, something editors complained was missing when the software first shipped in June 2011. The last major update of Pro X happened in September.

The multicam component automatically syncs up to 64 angles, using data such as timestamps, timecodes, or audio waveforms. An Angle Editor lets users adjust content, while the Angle Viewer is capable of playing back multiple views simultaneously, cutting between them as needed. Clips used in a multicam setup can employ mixed formats, framesizes and/or framerates.

Also new in v10.0.3 is a beta of broadcast monitoring, supporting both PCIe and Thunderbolt devices. Chromakey tools have been improved with new controls for color sampling, edge adjustment, and light wrap. Layered Photoshop files can be imported, and XML support, lastly, has been enhanced for a "richer interchange with third party apps and plug-ins," according to Apple.

The update is a free download for existing owners of Pro X. The software is otherwise $300 new.

    Finally

    with this release, hopefully the Cranky Old Men Who Don't Like Change portion of the Final Cut base will shut the heck up.
