Apple has released Final Cut Pro X 10.0.1 (http://macte.ch/Gc6jI), an update to its professional video editing software.
The upgrade adds XML import and export of both project and event information. The latter means that users can take XML formatted projects and work on them in Final Cut Pro X.
“Now you can import and export Final Cut Pro X project and Event information via a rich XML format,” Apple’s Final Cut Pro X page says. “XML interchange enables a wide range of third-party workflows, including high-end visual effects, color grading, and media asset management. Blackmagic Design’s DaVinci Resolve, Square Box System’s CatDV, and many other third-party applications will offer XML-based work flows with Final Cut Pro X.”
Apple is also offering a free trial of the software — which costs US$299 in the Mac App Store — and “Final Cut Pro X for Final Cut Pro 7 Editors” guide (http://macte.ch/VKF8l). The free trial gives users a full version of the software that will work for 30 days from the time it’s launched.
