Introduces multicam editing, advanced chroma keying, and enhanced XML
Apple has released Final Cut Pro X v10.0.3, an updated version of its professional video editing application, which features multicam editing, advanced chroma keying, and enhanced XML.
With the new multicam editing tools, Final Cut Pro X automatically syncs clips from user shoot to create a Multicam Clip with up to 64 angles of video, which can include mixed formats, frame sizes and frame rates.
Final Cut Pro X builds upon its one-step chroma key with the addition of advanced controls including colour sampling, edge adjustment and light wrap.
A user can handle keying challenges right in Final Cut Pro X, without having to export to a motion graphics application and also can view the results with realtime playback, claims the company.
XML-compatible softwares provide tight integration for tasks such as colour correction and media management and the new 7toX app from Intelligent Assistance uses XML to import Final Cut Pro 7 projects into Final Cut Pro X.
Broadcast monitoring in Final Cut Pro X, which is currently in beta, will support monitoring of video and audio through Thunderbolt I/O devices and also through third party PCIe cards.
