The latest update to Apple’s Final Cut Pro X introduces workflow extensions to enable the use of third-party apps and services directly within the editing interface.
Workflow extensions match the look of Final Cut Pro and integrate into the app, allowing editors to drag media into Final Cut Pro libraries, sync playback between extensions and timeline, add clip markers and more.
The extensions make it possible to use popular post tools including review and approval with Frame.io, stock footage browsing and purchasing with Shutterstock and media asset management with CatDV. Workflow extensions can be downloaded free from the Mac App Store starting today. Additional third-party extensions for Final Cut Pro will be available on an ongoing basis.
The new version of Final Cut Pro also includes features lie batch sharing and a new Comparison Viewer window lets editors view reference images while grading to ensure a consistent look across the project.
