Alongside the launch of the iMac Pro last Thursday, Apple introduced a new version of Final Cut Pro X, the company's video editing software aimed at professionals.
We went hands-on with the new Final Cut Pro X 10.4 update in our latest video to highlight the new features you can expect to see.
Final Cut Pro X 10.4 introduces 360º VR video editing with the ability to connect a headset, support for HDR, and new color tools like new color wheels with integrated sliders for adjusting parameters like hue, saturation, and brightness, color curves for ultra-fine adjustments, an eyedropper for sampling parts of an image for adjustment, manual white balance tools, new keyboard shortcuts for color adjustments, and more.
As promised earlier this year, the update includes support for HEVC and HEIF, the new video and photo formats introduced in iOS 11 and macOS High Sierra.
It also adds direct import of iMovie for iOS timelines, and, for new iMac Pro owners, there's optimized performance on the new pro-level machine with support for up to 36 cores with hyperthreading.
Final Cut Pro X can be downloaded from the Mac App Store for $299.99. [Direct Link]
