Apple terminated support for Final Cut Pro 7 earlier this year just months after seeding updates to Final Cut Pro and iMovie for Mac. Having hit over 2 million users for its popular editing tool, Apple has introduced a major update to Final Cut Pro X with support for High Dynamic Range videos, 360-degree VR editing and advanced color grading.
The update comes alongside the release of the iMac Pro which is not out for grabs and allows users to edit full-resolution 8K videos to make incredible footage with motion graphics. Even if VR isn’t your thing, the latest Final Cut Pro X update allows the use of Rec. 2020 HDR10 and Rec. 2020 Hybrid Log Gamma formats while editing HDR videos.
To allow for fine-tuning hue, luminance, brightness, white balance and saturation, Apple has introduced advanced color grading tools which can be accessed from within the app. Users can now import from iMovie, edit Cinema RAW Light & HEVC videos in addition to making slow-motion footage with the Metal framework.
