Apple Releases Final Cut Pro X 10.0.4, Motion And Compressor Updates

Apple has released the latest update to the revolutionary Final Cut Pro X, 10.0.4. It looks like a smaller update compared to 10.0.3, but still a good one that you should download via the Mac App Store. The update includes, according to Apple:

  • Improves image quality and responsiveness of broadcast monitoring with compatible third-party PCIe and Thunderbolt I/O devices.
  • Improves performance of multicam syncing and editing.
  • Adds language support for Simplified Chinese.
  • Adds a Share option for 1080p video on compatible iOS devices.

Assigns default audio channel setting for new projects to stereo.

  • Includes multicam metadata in XML project export.
  • Fixes an issue in which video superimposed over a background with an alpha channel could appear differently in Viewer before and after render.
  • Fixes an issue that caused some titles to be rendered again after each application launch.
What does 10.0.4 mean for users of the brilliant 7toX app from Intelligent Assistance? Co-creator (and genius) Philip Hodgetts said this on Facebook: “10.0.4 means that Xto7 now supports flattened multicam going from FCP X to FCP 7. It’s in the current App store version!” Sweet!!
Motion 5 has an update as well, to 5.0.3:
  • Improves loading time for projects.
  • Improves performance of text editing in Canvas.
  • Fixes issues with Fill Opaque enabled in images converted to Drop Zones.
  • Resolves a stability issue that could occur when deleting all characters with the Transform Glyph tool.
  • Corrects the pixel aspect ratio display of Anamorphic clips.
And, of course, Compressor is updated to version 4.0.3:
  • Ability to run Compressor as an encoding node on a Mac without a monitor.
  • Fixes an issue with exporting when logged in as an Open Directory user.
  • Improves performance when encoding mp4 and AVI files. (OH YEAH!)

As usual, backup all your events and projects before updating to FCP X 10.0.4.
