Apple is introducing a new update to Final Cut Pro X with new format from Apple, ProRes RAW.

The update also adds advanced closed captioning tools that allow video editors to easily view, edit and deliver captions from within the app. Apple is also adding new features to Final Cut Pro companion apps, Motion and Compressor.

ProRes RAW is a new format from Apple with performance optimised for macOS so editors can play full-quality 4K ProRes RAW files on MacBook Pro and iMac systems in real time without rendering. Final Cut Pro editors will be able to work natively with ProRes RAW and ProRes RAW HQ files created by Atomos recorders. The format will be available as a free update for owners of Atomos Sumo 19 and Shogun Inferno devices. The format will also be available as part of a forthcoming upgrade package to users of the DJI Inspire 2 drone and Zenmuse X7 Super 35mm camera system designed for aerial cinematography.

Final Cut Pro 10.4.1 will be available on April 9 as a free update for existing users, and for £299.99 for new users on the Mac App Store. Motion 5.4.1 and Compressor 4.4.1 will also be available on April 9 as free updates for existing users, and for £48.99 each for new users on the Mac App Store.
