Apple, as promised, has released major new versions of Final Cut Pro before the end of the month. Final Cut Pro 10.7 is now available for Mac and version 1.3 for iPad. Both platforms have received new features such as automatic scrolling for the timeline with real-time waveform updates.
If you already own Final Cut Pro for Mac or subscribe to iPadOS, the update is free.
New Features for 10.7 for macOS:
- Automatically scroll in the timeline so that clips appear under the playback head during playback.
- Edit more efficiently by combining a selected group of connected clips into a connected storyline.
- Display both video and audio role colors so you can easily see how the timeline is structured at a glance.
- See improved results when using the object tracker’s brand new machine learning model to analyze movements in faces and other objects on Mac computers with Apple Silicon.
- Use the enhanced Reveal in Browser feature to easily find a clip in the browser without losing your selected keyword collection or smart collection.
- Export HEVC and H.264 files faster by simultaneously processing video segments across multiple available media engines (requires macOS Sonoma or later and a Mac with Apple’s M1 Max, M1 Ultra, M2 Max, M2 Ultra, or M3 Max).
New Features for 1.3 for iPadOS:
- Record a narration voice and direct sound right into the timeline with the built-in iPad microphone or external microphones.
- Get the perfect look with new stylish presets for color balancing.
- Choose from a selection of new titles and generators.
- Edit more efficiently by grouping connected clips into a connected storyline.
- Control stabilization in professional camera mode.
