Apple announced Final Cut Pro X last night at NAB. The editing suite was “built from the ground up” and contains a number of new features including people detection, auto image stabilization, color matching, magnetic timeline, and 64-bit support which allows the program to utilize all core of processors.
Final Cut X will also always be rendering video in the background, so you can watch edit as you make them rather than having to sit through long render times. Video can also be editing now as it is being ingested, so if you’re capturing a huge clip you can start editing the beginning of the clip while the remainder of the clip is still being ingested.
Final Cut Pro X will be available from the Mac App Store in June for $299.
