What’s New with Software:
Apple has released new updates for both Final Cut Pro and iMovie for macOS through the Mac App Store.
iMovie version 10.1.5 for macOS includes a few bug fixes and improvements. Without giving much away, Apple state that the upgrade fixes an issue which could add a red tint to video imported from some camcorders, addresses an issue which prevented some videos shot on iPhone from appearing in the import window, and generally improves performance and stability.
Final Cut Pro version 10.3.3 includes a more detailed list:
• Ability to expand the width of the Inspector to view and adjust effect parameters
• Fixes issues with updating older libraries
• Faster redraw of audio waveforms when using clips that are being imported while recorded to disk
• Diamond icon in the Timeline Index to show when the user has modified display of roles in the timeline
• More color options in the Role Editor
• Reveal in Browser correctly displays the location of the original clip in the browser
• Support for Canon Log 3 and Sony S-Log3/S-Gamut3 log processing
• Resolves an issue in which the viewer could occasionally disappear when exiting full screen
• Resolves issues in which Share to DVD could become unresponsive
• Improves font quality of DVD menu and chapter titles
• Improves image quality when creating a DVD
• Enhanced DVD User dialog messages with embedded links to documentation.
Motion and Compressor have also received new improvement updates.
And Some is now Free
Apple recently updated the App Store, making iMovie, GarageBand and the iWork suite (Pages, Numbers and Keynote) available for free to all iOS and Mac users. The apps were previously free to anyone who purchased a new iOS or macOS device in the past several years, but the update means a device purchase is no longer required.
