We can say whatever we want about the supposed abandonment of Apple before its professional users, but at least one of the products intended mainly for this audience continues to be treated very well in Cupertino. I speak, of course, of Final Cut Pro X, which received the biggest update in its history a few months ago and is now getting some more interesting news.
Final Cut Pro 10.4.1 brings two main new features. The first of these is a new set of tools for adding, adjusting and controlling subtitles in the videos an even more important resource, incidentally, for videographers who do not have English as their primary language. Users can import subtitle files to their videos and edit them to their liking, or create their own subtitle within the program, without having to resort to other software just for that part of the process.
The editing of subtitles is almost unlimited, with a new Inspector dedicated entirely to them, and even allows the inclusion of several languages ??within the same project, sharing the versions of the video in each of the languages ??translated all because of a new tab. in the sharing window, called Roles (papers), which separates the main elements of the project (audio, video, titles) for simplified final adjustments.
The second novelty of the day was the addition of RAW ProRes, a new video format created by Apple itself. This is a new version of the well-known Apple ProRes, a compressed standard that has existed since 2007 and is highly praised by professionals for its ability to retain quality without taking up much space with video files; the ProRes RAW maintains these characteristics (in some cases, the files can be even lighter) and adds the flexibility of the raw format (RAW), in which the editing is done directly in the information captured by the sensors of the cameras, without processing.
The FCPX update will be able to work with both the "common" ProRes RAW and ProRes RAW HQ, of even higher quality. Manufacturers Atomos and DJI will be the first to launch or update products with support for capture in formats, and other brands should follow the practice soon.
Final Cut Pro X users will be able to update their software for free from the next 9th (Monday of next week); Punctual updates for the ?companions? programs Motion (5.4.1) and Compressor (4.4.1) will also be available on that date. For newbies, FCPX costs R $ 1,000 on the Mac App Store, with each of the complementary programs costing R $ 170.
