Apple has iMovie version 10.1.9 for MacOS Released as a free update to its consumer video editing software, this is the first update of the app since the release of macOS High Sierra. iMovie 10.1.9 adds support for the iPhone X and additional iPad resolutions This is how videos can be created for the App Store, which should entice users to download iPhone and iPad apps. The update also includes a number of bug fixes and stability improvements. iMovie 10.1.9 is available for free on the Mac App Store.
As promised last Thursday, Apple also released a major update to Final Cut Pro X. The release 10.4.1 of Final Cut Pro X brings two new house features in the form of enhanced subtitles and ProRes RAW support.
Apple has significantly expanded the possibilities for subtitling for its professional video editing software. The advanced subtitle feature allows you to import directly into a project or create it from scratch. Subtitles are displayed in the Viewer during playback and can be attached to video or audio clips in the timeline so they automatically adapt to the clips they are connected to. Label text, color, orientation, position and other parameters can be adjusted. You can also create subtitles in multiple languages within the same timeline and create videos with subtitles for YouTube and Vimeo.
Apple has come up with ProRes RAW is a new format that allows users to capture, edit and color-grade unadulterated raw RAW data directly from the camera into Final Cut Pro. In addition, the adjustment of brightness and shade is easily possible. Users can enjoy full quality 4K ProRes RAW files on MacBook Pro and iMac systems in real-time without rendering. The files are more compact than ProRes 4444 files, saving disk space and improving backup capabilities.
However, there are only a handful of cameras that are suitable for ProRes RAW. These include the Canon C300 and the Panasonic EVA1 – and these must be combined with an external Atomos Shogun Inferno or the Atomos Sumo19 ProRes RAW recorder. DJI is equipping its Zenmuse X7 camera with built-in ProRes RAW recording support, which will be available for the Inspire 2 drone this spring.
If you already own Final Cut Pro X, you can download 10.4.1 for free on Mac Download App Store. Otherwise, the software costs around 300 euros.
