Apple claimed that the new Final Cut Pro X will completely reinvents video editing with a Magnetic Timeline that lets users edit on a flexible, trackless canvas; Content Auto-Analysis that categorizes content upon import by shot type, media and people; and background rendering that allows users to work without interruption.
"Final Cut Pro X is the biggest advance in Pro video editing since the original Final Cut Pro," said Philip Schiller, Apple"s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing. "We have shown it to many of the world"s best Pro editors, and their jaws have dropped."
New features on Final Cut Pro X include the Magnetic Timeline, a trackless approach to editing footage that lets users add and arrange clips wherever they want them, while other clips instantly slide out of the way.
Users can use Clip Connections to link primary story clips to other elements like titles and sound effects, so they stay in perfect sync when users move them. Also, users can even combine related story elements into a Compound Clip that can be edited as a single clip. The groundbreaking new Auditions feature lets users swap between a collection of clips to instantly compare alternate takes.
