Apple releases Final Cut Pro X Update and It is Major

Apple has released a new version of Final Cut Pro X.  10.0.6 adds many new features.  I have upgraded already and will report back on FCPX in a future post.

So let's take a quick look at the list of new features.

  • Expand multichannel audio files directly in the timeline for precide editing of individual audio channels
  • Unified import window for transferring media from both file based cameras and folders of files
  • Redesigned Share interface for exporting projects and range selections to one or more destinations
  • RED Camera support with native REDCODE RAW editing and optional background transcode to Apple ProRes
  • MXF plugin support that allows you to work natively with MXF files from import through delivery using 3rd prty plugins.
  • Dual Viewers each with video scope display, let you compare shots to match action & color
  • Option to add chapter markers in the timelinefor export to video files, DVD and Blu-ray disc
  • Range selection now preserves start and end points in the Event Browser andd allows you to create multiple range selections on a single clip (good)
  • Paste attributes window lets you choose specific effects to copy between clips (about time)
  • Flexible Clip Connections allow you to keep Connected Clips in place when slipping, sliding or moving clips in the Primary Storyline
  • Add a freeze frame to your timeline with a singel keystroke
  • Drop shadow effect with intuitive onscreen controls to adjust position, edge falloff, angle and more
  • New controls for combining audio from multiple angles within a Multicam Clip
  • Compound Clip creation in the Timeline now saves the clip in the Event Browser for re-use in other projects
  • XML 1.2 featuring metadata import and export for richer integration with third party apps.

Apple have released a Knowledge Base article and it should be essential reading before anybody upgrades to 10.0.6.  The article recommends backing up not only projects and events, but also the app as well.
