Apple’s video editor brings major breakthrough in video editing by providing revolutionary editing tools. It has introduced a new dynamic interface using Magnetic Timeline, Multi-cam support, remote monitoring and various features.
Final Cut Pro X 10.0.3 Features
It offers an exceptionally simple and flexible way to edit video clips using professional tools just when you need them. Shots can be assembled magnetically and it also powers removal of unwanted black gaps from the video so that we can create an interactive and innovative video with more animated and enhanced features.
With the updated version (10.0.3), it now supports footage from up-to 64 separate cameras, each with different combination of codecs, resolution and frame rates. The application can obviously sync based on embedded timestamps, but it can also automatically take a shot at lining up footage by looking at the waveforms of associated audio from each camera.
It provides an easy way to place clips such as B-roll, sound effects and music in the timeline so that they all move together as you make changes even in the most complex projects.
Inline Precision Editor
The magnetic timeline improves traditional ways of trimming, including ripple, roll, slip and slide edits. We can directly edit any specific portion by the timeline itself. To do this, double-click on the editing area and then precision editor automatically expands the view and then clips can be edited with ease and precision.
Powerful Media Organization
Final Cut Pro X helps you to handle different formats and footage with ease, offering new ways to organize your media and find the clips which you need.
Range Based Keywords
We can make our search more precise by creating our own keywords and assigning them to clip ranges. Effortless skimming and keyboard shortcuts let you work fast.

Direct Access to Content Libraries
Built in content browsers let you preview and search for photos, music and sound effects. It also provides drag and drop feature for photos, movies and different kinds of video clips.
There’s also a new advanced Chroma key feature, which enables better tweaking of green screen-like footage from directly within the app, and the ability to work with layered PSDs right there as well. Along with all these, it also beta support for broadcast monitoring hardware from the likes of Blackmagic, AJA and Matrox, all of which are said to have or be working on Thunderbolt-equipped hardware.
Finally, three third-party add-ons are available in the Market. Red Giant has a version of its Magic Bullet Suite, GenArts has its Sapphire Edge plugin and Intelligent Assistance has a $10 app called 7toX that will convert legacy Final Cut Pro projects into the latest and greatest format.
The features in the upgraded version of the Final Cut Pro X are good enough. The update is available for free to those who have already paid the $299 entry fee, but is it all enough to woo back those jilted pros who might have taken their multi-cam setups elsewhere over the past seven months? That we will have to wait and see.
