A look at the latest offering for Apple's professional post-production software
It only happens every 2 years or so that Apple releases a major upgrade to its professional suite of post-production software. Now Final Cut Studio 3 is unveiled, and at the core is Final Cut Pro 7.
New Features to Final Cut Pro 7 include:
Expanded ProRes family
New versions of the Apple ProRes codec let you edit faster and at higher quality across a wide variety of workflows. The family now includes ProRes 422 (Proxy), ProRes 422 (LT) and ProRes 4444, in addition to the original ProRes 422 and ProRes 422 (HQ).
Delivery to your Apple devices, the web, and disc is just a click away. Choose your output format in the Share window, then keep working while your projects are rendered, compressed, and even published to the web in the background.
iChat Theater support
Now you can work with clients or collaborators as if they were in the room with you - in real time, from anywhere in the world. Just send your Final Cut Pro video to iChat Theater to let everyone see the same footage while you view dailies, select shots, and make edits.
