Curtains Raised Over Final Cut Pro X at NAB

At the National Association of Broadcasters Show in Las Vegas, Apple raised the curtains over its much-awaited for video-editing software, Final Cut Pro X.

A pro, really?!

A pro, really?!


Claiming to having ‘rebuilt it from ground-up’, the software promises to speed up the editing process by a huge margin. A 64-bit application written in Apple's Cocoa, Final Cut Pro X offers background rendering, aptly used multicore processors. One of its other new features includes the option to edit a video even as it is being imported. Apple recently unveiled the latest version of iMovie and has now incorporated some of the newly installed features of iMovie like detecting people in shots, be it a close-up, wide angle or a medium shots in Final Cut Pro X.

The files saved on the editing software will seem more organized in the updated version of the software. For once, labeling files with tags can make the task of looking out for them in a humungous library, will seem less tasking. It also makes provisions for filing in timelines into ‘buckets’, which ideally should reduce search efforts.

Apparently, Apple took over the stage at the NAB event, as it allegedly asked SuperMeet’s organizers to change its line of speakers, as well as sponsorships from brands like Avid and Canon. All this to make Randy Ubillos, Apple's chief architect of video applications, and Final Cut architect Peter Steinauer the lone presenters at the event.
