Apple Details Final Cut Pro X 10.0.5 Update And MacBook Pro With Retina Display
Apple updated their Final Cut Pro X page, and under the “What’s New” section, they offer some details on the 10.0.5 update, and how it works with their new MacBook Pro with Retina display. In addition to beautiful, 2880 x 1800, 5.1-million pixel screen, you’ll be able to edit and view in full-resolution 1080p video in the viewer, without having to open it for full screen playback. You can view it while in your normal FCP X workspace.
Thanks to the standard flash drive, fast RAM (up to 16GB), and faster Intel Core i7 processors, up to 2.7 GHz, this baby is lightning quick, so it can handle multistream and multicam smoother and faster than on other systems. According to Apple, the throughput is up to 500 MBps, so you can edit up to 9 streams of ProRes video at 1080p resolution, or four streams of 8-bit uncompressed 1080p video. Wow! This system is a BEAST! The rest of the details go back to the 10.0.3 update in late January 2012.
I personally can’t wait to get my hands on the new MacBook Pro with Retina display, with 16GB of RAM, and put it through its paces with FCP X 10.0.5, along with Motion 5.0.4 and Compressor 4.0.4. Check out all the “What’s New” details on Apple’s FCP X page.
