Apple Updates Final Cut Pro

USB device supports audio and MIDI By Dave Nagel
Apple has released an incremental update to Final Cut Pro. The new version, 3.0.4, offers performance enhancements and bug fixes for the non-linear editing system. Those who answer a questionnaire on the FCP update download page will also receive a free Time bender plugin from Joe''s Filters.

The new version of Final Cut Pro fixes problems with certain effects not being represented correctly in EDLs. It also offers performance improvements for the dual 1.25 GHz G4 system. Other bug fixes include:

  • EDLs with clips containing speed changes are now imported correctly;
  • A fix for clips with timecode occurring in hour 23;
  • Fix for problems with incorrect sync in OMF files;
  • A fix for incorrect audio and video sync during edit to tape operations;
  • A fix for instances of audio dropouts occurring after mixing down audio in sequences with multiple cross dissolves.

The new update works with any version of Final Cut Pro 3.0 for Mac OS X and up. It requires Mac OS X 10.2.1 or later and QuickTime 6.0.2 or later. The update is free for current users. For more information, visit
