Good news for those using Sony XAVC media
Final Cut Pro X users who rely on Sony XAVC media will have a reason to smile at today's minor update to FCP. The new version, 10.0.9, corrects issues resulting in green artifacts with that particular media, and also fixes several issues related to interlaced media and re-timed segments that could cause exports to fail. The update is the first since March, when version 10.0.8 introduced support for the XAVC 4K codec. The 10.0.9 update is also said to contain the usual stability improvements. An update to Apple's ProApps QuickTime Codecs could be coming as well.
XAVC is part of the ProApps QuickTime Codecs package, which is currently at version 1.0.2, and also includs Apple Intermediate Codec, ProRes, AVC-Intra, DVCPRO HD, HDV, XDCAM HD/EX/HD422, MPEG IMX, and uncompressed 4:2:2. The 10.0.9 FCP X update is available through Software Update, and is recommended for all users of Final Cut Pro X.
