Final Cut Pro X 10.2.3 Can Finally Import Canon XF-AVC
With Final Cut Pro X 10.2.3, Apple offers a couple of nice new features, although most improvements happen under the hood.
There is always a sense of mixed emotions when you see your software’s update notes are mostly made of points starting with “improves stability when…”, or “fixes an issue in which…”—of course, you want your software to be bigger, better, and more awesome than ever before. But in reality, there is just the quiet appreciation of knowing your software is in tip top shape for a little bit longer. It’s just… OK.
Final Cut Pro X 10.2.3 Changes:
With this in mind, let’s have a look at the juiciest improvements that version 10.2.3 brings to Final Cut Pro X.
– It is now possible to share a video to more than one YouTube video account simultaneously.
– 4K export presets specifically for exporting to Apple devices.
– Apple has finally addressed the erratic behaviour of the Dashboard timecode display, which some users had reported after the latest OSX update to El Capitan.
– Native support for Canon’s XF-AVC codec. OK, so this one is pretty important. The Canon C300 Mark II has been out for a little while now, and users can finally import footage natively without transcoding with third-party software. Yay!
If you have been following our posts in recent times, you may remember us speculating on the possibility of a new audio mixer based on Roles metadata in Final Cut Pro X. Well, unfortunately, there is no sign of this new feature with Final Cut Pro X 10.2.3. Oh, well… perhaps something for version 10.4, then. If you want to know more about this potential feature, you can check out the article here.
Make sure you download the free update to Final Cut Pro X 10.2.3 from the App Store here. Final Cut Pro X’s sibling applications Motion and Compressor also got an update, so get those too while you’re at it if you already own the software. For new users, Motion and Compressor come in at $49.99 each.
