Apple has rolled out exciting updates to its professional video and audio editing suites, Final Cut Pro and Logic Pro, enhancing the creative toolkit for professionals and enthusiasts alike.
Final Cut Pro: What’s New?
The latest iteration of Final Cut Pro on Mac introduces a suite of features designed to simplify the editing process. With automatic timeline scrolling, editors can effortlessly maintain an overview of their clips while making real-time adjustments. Organizational tools have been refined, allowing for a clearer distinction between clips based on their roles, which is a boon for managing complex projects.
Apple Silicon users will particularly benefit from optimized export times for popular formats like H.264 and HEVC, alongside more responsive object tracking powered by machine learning.
On the iPad, Final Cut Pro now boasts robust voiceover capabilities, enabling direct audio recording onto the timeline. The update also brings new color-grading presets and titles, alongside improved stabilization and clip grouping. For those starting on iMovie for iOS, projects can now be imported into Final Cut Pro and further refined on Mac.
Logic Pro: What’s New?
Logic Pro’s update is a game-changer for audio production, with the new Mastering Assistant paving the way for release-ready mixes. The introduction of 32-bit float recording promises to preserve the utmost audio fidelity by preventing digital clipping.
