Apple's Final Cut Pro X Update To Showcase New Editing Tools

Cupertino based company Apple Inc. launched important updates for video editing software, Final Cut Pro X Mac. The latest update will add new editing support as well as beta support for broadcasting monitoring of Thunderbolt devices as well as PCIe cards.

According to the company, this update will provide multicam editing "that automatically syncs up to 64 angles of video and photos," an improved chroma key to manage various complex adjustments present in the app and also improve XML for better interchangeability with other third party apps as well as plug-ins.

It is also reported that there will also be a selection of new tools to be used for editing multicam projects which automatically synchronise different video clips from different cameras by using audio waveforms, time and date and also timecodes, reported The Next Web.

On the official press release, the company also mentioned a few third party add-ons. These add-ons have been introduced after Final Cut Pro X was made available around seven months back, with one of the add-ons featuring a 7toX app from Intelligent Assistance that utilises XML for importing Final Cut 7 project into this new update.

The update can be downloaded from Apple's Mac App Store.
