For all your PC requirements
Apple Final Cut Pro X
Final Cut Pro X includes the key sound editing and color grading features from Final Cut Studio, so now you can use a single application for the entire post-production workflow. Do even more with Motion and Compressor, also available from the Mac App Store.
Revolutionary Video Editing
Rebuilt from the ground up to meet the needs of today’s creative editors, Final Cut Pro breaks free from the restrictions of old-fashioned timeline tracks. A new, dynamic editing interface lets you experiment freely while working with extraordinary speed and precision.
Suddenly, everything falls into place.
With a visual simplicity that reveals powerful professional tools just when you need them, the Magnetic Timeline in Final Cut Pro offers an exceptionally fluid, flexible way to edit. Assemble shots with ease as clips “magnetically” close up to eliminate unwanted black gaps in the timeline. Similarly, clips move out of the way to avoid clip collisions and sync problems, so you can focus on creating your story. Interactive animations show you exactly what’s happening in the timeline as you work, so you can easily try out new ideas.
Keep it together.
Clip Connections are an easy way to place clips such as B-roll, sound effects, and music in the timeline so that they all move together as you make changes — even in the most complex projects. Final Cut Pro automatically creates a Clip Connection when you drag a secondary element to the timeline.
Whether you’re doing a fast assembly or precise trimming, you can edit with confidence, knowing that Clip Connections keep everything together. It’s particularly easy to reorganize your story as you work, because you can move a section of your project in a single step. Clear visual connections make it easy to hand off a project to another editor or to resume editing at a later date.
Say goodbye to timeline clutter.
With Compound Clips, you can group a complex set of elements and collapse them into a single clip. This removes clutter from the timeline and creates a simplified version of the segment that’s easy to move or duplicate. Reuse a Compound Clip in other projects — for example, for a unique sound design with layered sound effects. Or use a Compound Clip to add an effect to multiple shots with a click. Step into a Compound Clip or expand it at any time to make changes to individual elements.
Inline Precision Editor
Perfect the pacing.
Right in the timeline.
The Magnetic Timeline improves on traditional ways of trimming, including ripple, roll, slip, and slide edits. If you need additional control, double-click an edit to open the Precision Editor and make trims directly in the timeline. The Precision Editor expands your view of the edit point so you can see both used and unused portions of your clips. Then skim entire clips and adjust edit points with a click.
It’s never been easier to choose the perfect shot.
With the unique Auditions feature, you can collect multiple alternative shots at a single location in the timeline and quickly cycle through them in context. Test different B-roll shots, different reads of the same lines, different color grades for the same shot, or different effects. Or use Auditions to create multiple versions of your project for different deliverables and venues. It’s easy to create an Audition — simply drag shots of any length to the same place in the timeline and choose “Add to Audition.” As you try out different shots, the Magnetic Timeline keeps everything in sync.
Powerful Media Organization
Today’s video editor has to deal with more formats and footage than ever before. Final Cut Pro X helps you handle it all with ease, offering dynamic new ways to organize your media and find just the clips you need.
Let your media organize itself.
Final Cut Pro dramatically speeds up preparing your media by analyzing your source material in the background while you edit. Content Auto-Analysis scans your footage and creates metadata based on the way editors like to work — with range-based tags for media attributes, camera data, shot type, and whether the shot contains one person, two people, or a group. Use these tags to sort, filter, and search your clips.
Set up Auto-Analysis to occur during import, or analyze clips later if you prefer. Content Auto-Analysis also performs processor-intensive analysis ahead of time for features such as image stabilization, corrections for rolling shutter distortion, color balance, and repairs for typical audio problems. Then you can use these features in real time as you edit.
Sort, filter, and search.
On your own terms.
Make searches even more precise by creating your own keywords and assigning them to clip ranges. Effortless skimming and keyboard shortcuts let you work fast. The List view shows the metadata for a clip as you skim to add new keywords. Or use the Filmstrip view to see your footage instantly without sorting through obscure clip names.
Use these range-based keywords in combination with rich metadata from Content Auto-Analysis to find any shot with a few keystrokes — a big improvement over old-fashioned static bins.
Search without a second thought.
Set up Smart Collections to organize clips in a variety of ways without moving or copying files. Create a search using any combination of metadata and keywords, then save it as a Smart Collection. Final Cut Pro automatically adds new items to a Smart Collection when there is a match with the fields you’ve selected.
Content Auto-Analysis creates Smart Collections for you using key attributes such as shot type or the number of people in the shot. You can also designate shots as Favorites or Rejects and include those criteria as you sort, filter, search, and create Smart Collections.
Direct Access to Content Libraries
Drag and drop photos, movies, music, and more.
Built-in content browsers let you preview and search for photos, music, and sound effects without leaving Final Cut Pro. Easily access visual content through the Photos Browser, which includes your iPhoto and Aperture libraries. Final Cut Pro supports MP3 and AAC files, so you can use iTunes as your built-in music library. Final Cut Pro also offers more than 1300 royalty-free sound effects through a free software update, as well as a range of generators — including graphic backgrounds and textures — that add polish to your projects. When you find the content you’re looking for, just drag and drop to add it directly to the timeline.
Designed to take full advantage of the power of Mac OS X and multicore Mac computers, Final Cut Pro X operates at blazing speeds and with superior quality.
Work with larger projects, larger frame sizes, more frames in RAM, and deeper multilayered effects.

ColorSync-managed color pipeline
Trust the color consistency across Final Cut Pro, Motion, Compressor, and QuickTime.
Shared Render Engine
Render with consistent performance and pristine quality across Final Cut Pro, Motion, and Compressor.
Using the Shared Render Engine, create blurs, scales, and lighting effects in floating-point, linear-light color space — the same quality found in high-end compositing software.
Final Cut Pro has been rebuilt from the ground up to offer unprecedented speed and superior quality through every part of the post-production workflow.
No longer restricted to the 4GB limit of 32-bit applications, Final Cut Pro uses all the RAM in your system to handle larger frame sizes and keep more frames in memory. You can now create more extensive projects and work with deeper, more interesting multilayered effects.
Final Cut Pro uses the high-speed GPU on the graphics card for effects previews and rendering. Because tapping the GPU core speeds up processing, you can work with richer, more complex effects that play in real time during the creative process.
As you edit, Final Cut Pro takes advantage of unused cycles in the background to execute a range of tasks, so you can be creative without interruption. Background processing includes rendering, transcoding, and moving media.
ColorSync-managed color pipeline
Final Cut Pro is designed to use Apple’s ColorSync color management for display and processing, producing accurate and consistent color from import through render and export. Colors look the same whether you’re playing back media in Final Cut Pro, Motion, or QuickTime.
Shared Render Engine
Final Cut Pro shares a render engine with Motion and Compressor for consistent speed and quality. The shared engine allows Motion templates to play back in Final Cut Pro without rendering. The engine renders in linear-light color space for exceptionally realistic results.
Final Cut Pro is a Mac OS X–native application built with the Apple Cocoa framework. Using intuitive, familiar interface elements and technologies like Core Animation, Cocoa makes Final Cut Pro more responsive, interactive, and fun to use.
Grand Central Dispatch
Final Cut Pro utilizes Grand Central Dispatch in Mac OS X to harness all the processing power of multiple cores on the Mac. For even more speed, Final Cut Pro also uses the new AVX capabilities of Intel’s “Sandy Bridge” processors.
Background process monitoring
Easily monitor the progress of background processes from the dashboard, so you always know what your multicore processors are doing. Or click to open the Background Tasks window and get a detailed display of active processes along with their progress. For complete control, you can manually pause or cancel any background process.
The high-quality rendering in Final Cut Pro makes it possible to compute realistic effects with extraordinary precision using floating-point, linear-light color space calculations. You get the same superb results for blurs, scales, and lighting effects as you would from high-end compositing software.
Start editing before you’ve finished importing your media. Final Cut Pro X offers support for a wide range of popular native formats and creates proxies in the background as you work.
Increased native format support
Final Cut Pro natively supports more formats than ever, including AVCHD, H.264 from DSLRs, and a range of professional formats. Resolution independence lets you mix and match formats and frame rates all the way up to 4K. Final Cut Pro also supports compressed audio formats — including MP3 and AAC — so it’s easy to use iTunes as your built-in music library. For video blogging, capture video from the built-in camera on your Mac or Apple LED Cinema Display.
Easily create a single-volume archive for any collection of media. When you create a Camera Archive, Final Cut Pro adds a unique identifier to every clip to ensure that it’s tracked accurately throughout the editing process.
All your iMovie Events and projects transfer seamlessly to Final Cut Pro. You can start your project with a quick rough cut in iMovie, then switch to Final Cut Pro for full-featured editing. Or if you usually work in iMovie, you can take your craft to the next level and leverage your existing work. Either way, you can keep cutting without a break in the action.
Import a wide range of codecs and formats from popular cameras that record to memory cards. Start editing instantly by inserting a card directly into the SD slot in your Mac. Final Cut Pro copies the media from the SD card and gives you the option to edit natively or transcode to ProRes in the background while you continue to edit. See all supported formats
Final Cut Pro supports streaming DV capture through FireWire. Or capture video from tape using third-party video cards and software. Let the capture run in the background at your workstation or use a dedicated capture station.
Create proxy media in the background, so you can work outside the edit studio without copying large original files. Import once using high-quality master sources, then transfer lightweight proxies to your notebook for editing on the road. When you’re back in the office, just reconnect from proxy to original media and keep working at high resolution.
Powerful Media Organization
Final Cut Pro features a new way to organize and search large amounts of media — without copying and moving files or rooting in old-fashioned static bins. Now you can find clips in a few clicks.
Dramatically speed up your workflow by performing Content Auto-Analysis during import. Some options are designed to get processor-intensive analysis out of the way so you can work in real time during the edit. Because the analysis runs as a background process, you can keep editing to meet your deadline. Or analyze clips later to streamline specific tasks.
Media detection - Final Cut Pro analyzes all metadata related to a clip and uses it for media management. The import process detects media type (audio only, video only, audio and video, or a still), frame size, frame rate, and codec, along with a wide range of other details. And if you import directly from the camera, the rich camera metadata is attached to the clip, so you can use it to search and organize your media.
People detection - Auto-Analysis uses people detection to determine if there is a single person or multiple people in the shot. This information is used to automatically organize shots into Smart Collections.
Shot detection - Final Cut Pro flags shots as close-up, medium, or wide, then organizes them into Smart Collections by type of shot.
Stabilization - Let Final Cut Pro analyze your media in the background to identify shaky segments. Then, when you’re editing, you can apply the Stabilization effect with a click and see instant results. For additional control, adjust parameters manually and see the results in real time.
Rolling shutter - Quick pans with the progressive CMOS sensors found in DSLRs can make an image look warped. Final Cut Pro can automatically make corrections after performing background analysis.
Color balance - Final Cut Pro can analyze the color of your clips on a frame-by-frame basis to produce superior results when you use the single-click Balance Color feature. The color correction is optimized for the specific frames you’ve selected.
Audio enhancement - Final Cut Pro can analyze and fix significant audio problems — such as hum, excessive noise, and silent channels — during import.
Old-fashioned bins don’t come close to the dynamic capabilities of searching through your media using keywords. Just select a range of time in your footage and assign one or more keywords to that range; you can create multiple overlapping ranges on the same clip. Use keyboard shortcuts to work even faster. When you assign a keyword, Final Cut Pro sets up a Keyword Collection and places the shot inside, ready for use. A simple Find function lets you combine keywords with other metadata to locate important shots.
Filmstrip and List views
The Filmstrip view in the Event Browser makes it easy to screen your media, because you can immediately see what you’re looking for. The List view includes small filmstrips that let you combine the power of a visual reference with rich metadata for sorting and searching. Skimming these views is faster than hunting for obscure clip names buried deep in bins.
Smart Collections make it easy to organize clips without moving or duplicating files. Easily create Smart Collections using custom keywords and metadata generated from Content Auto-Analysis. Final Cut Pro automatically updates Smart Collections as you import new media or add relevant metadata. For example, you could set up a Smart Collection to organize footage based on the shoot date, camera, and scene number.
Easy-to-use search tools
Quickly find clips in any Event by choosing from a full set of custom search functions that include clip name, keywords, Content Auto-Analysis tags, and camera metadata. Then instantly create a Smart Collection based on your search criteria. Because Final Cut Pro organizes media by Event, you can browse and search for media across multiple Events, independent of individual projects.
Grouping and arranging Events and clips
Grouping uses the power of metadata to instantly organize related media in the Event Browser. Grouping can be based on media drive, reel, scene, duration, file type, and much more. After grouping your media, you can quickly arrange it inside the group using camera metadata such as name, take, duration, and time stamp.
Favorites and Rejects
A single keystroke marks a range selection as a Favorite so you can come back to it later. One click on a Favorites range creates start and end times so you’re ready to edit. Or mark a clip segment as a Reject and hide it from view to reduce clutter. Because you can mark multiple ranges on one clip, you have much more flexibility than you would with traditional In and Out points. Show only Favorites or only Rejects to find clips fast.
Browsers for photos and music
The Photos Browser in Final Cut Pro lets you quickly access your complete Aperture and iPhoto libraries. Use the search capabilities in the Photos Browser interface, then drag any photo or video clip into your project. Save even more time by using iTunes as the library for your music and sound effects. Craft an immersive soundtrack by choosing from more than 1300 royalty-free sound effects, available through a free software update. Since Final Cut Pro can handle MP3 and AAC files, there’s no need to transcode before using the clips — just drag and drop to add them to the timeline.
Use the Timeline Index to navigate the timeline by jumping directly to clips, keywords, markers, and to-do items. Filter information with a click so that you see only the items you care about when you’re stepping through a complicated project. Or use the built-in search tool to filter and find just the clips you want. Check off to-do items right in the Timeline Index so anyone can see what has been done and what items remain open.
Revolutionary Video Editing
Final Cut Pro has reinvented creative video editing. Skim through footage, edit in a timeline that lets you move elements without clip collisions, and easily try out different shots and effects.
The Magnetic Timeline eliminates the restrictions of traditional, track-based timelines — so you’ll never be slowed down by clip collisions or out-of-sync problems as you’re working under pressure to assemble your story. As you add shots, other clips close up to eliminate gaps or move out of the way to make room. Just double-click to review an entire source clip in context. The Magnetic Timeline automatically tracks clip relationships as you rearrange, trim, or add clips, letting you easily make changes in even the most complex sequences.
The most responsive way ever to view vast amounts of media, skimming in the Filmstrip view lets you fly through keywording and selecting the best takes. Combine the Skimmer with the familiar Playhead for ultrafast navigation and editing. Skim to any point in your timeline, then press the Space bar to play the video instantly.
Now it’s easy to position B-roll, titles, music, and sound effects, with direct links to reference clips in the timeline. For precise edits, create a connection even down to the level of an audio sample. Establish a new connection with a keystroke and make changes at any point. When you move a reference clip in the timeline, all its connected clips move with it. If you’re working with a large number of clip connections, you can group them into a Storyline with a single connection point.
When you want to group clips in the timeline or Event Browser, consolidate them into a Compound Clip. Include any type of clip, such as video, audio, or graphics, and simplify your timeline for faster changes. Compound Clips let you reuse a montage in other projects or apply an effect — like a speed change — to multiple clips at once. Step into a Compound Clip to make changes or break it apart at any time to work with the individual clips.
Use Auditions to quickly try out different shots with a click. Collect multiple clips within one Audition clip in the timeline, then play them back in context to see which one works best. Use Auditions to see the same clip with different effects applied, try different performances of the same line, or view different montages in the same location. As you try each shot, the Magnetic Timeline instantly adjusts to reflect the clip length, keeping everything in sync.
Inline Precision Editor
When you need to fine-tune the timing of an edit, just double-click any edit point to reveal the Inline Precision Editor. Skimming over the extra material in the clip lets you find the best edit point. A single click lets you trim to a specific frame or audio sample.
Connect, Insert, Append, Overwrite, Replace
Edit with confidence using the timeline modes you know, with powerful options that have been updated to make editing fast and easy. Use any combination of techniques to place clips in your timeline — drag and drop, click intuitive icons, or save time with keystrokes.
Connect - Attaches clips such as B-roll and audio to the Primary Storyline; for more complex projects, create and manage a Secondary Storyline.
Insert - Places the clip at a precise location in your story; the Magnetic Timeline shifts other elements as needed.
Append - Ensures that your clip always goes to the end of the timeline — without any extra steps. This is the fastest way to rough-cut a story.
Overwrite - Works with a selected range in the timeline or goes right to the Skimmer location. With the Shift key modifier, you can even back-time clips so the end point matches the Skimmer position.
Replace - Allows you to swap one shot for another while leaving the rest of your project untouched. Choose to Replace from the start or end of a shot for more flexibility.
Combined with the power of the Magnetic Timeline, the classic three-point edit is even better. Single keystrokes let you insert and overwrite, giving you complete control without slowing you down.
Top and Tail
Use the technique favored by professional news and documentary editors all over the world. Trim the top or tail of an interview clip with a keystroke. Shortening sound bites and streamlining interviews just got a lot faster.
Adjust your clips directly in the timeline for the fastest, most straightforward way to make timing changes. Grab a clip edge to make a quick trim, or use the Trimming tool for all the standard trimming functions like ripple, roll, slip, slide, and extend. You can also make precise adjustments by entering numerical trims on the keyboard. With the immediate visual feedback of the Magnetic Timeline, you can watch your project adjust as you get the timing just right.
The secret to dialogue editing is using split edits such as J and L cuts. Hear the dialogue before you see the picture (J cut) or let the sound carry over to the next shot (L cut) to smooth out transitions or add dramatic tension. Easy to learn and use, J and L cuts can add polish and professionalism to every project.
Use the Position tool to access a flexible technique for arranging clips in the timeline. Switch to the Position tool with a keystroke to preserve timing and leave a gap when you move material. Then switch it off to regain the advantages of the fluid Magnetic Timeline.
Choose from more than 90 professionally designed transitions and add them to your project with drag-and-drop ease. Instantly insert a classic cross-dissolve with a simple keyboard command (Command-T).
Change your timeline view to reflect exactly what you need to do right now. Change clip height, display audio waveforms, and adjust video thumbnails — all from the Clip Appearance window.
When you skim video in the Event Browser, you can enable a tooltip-type display that shows the clip name and source timecode. Seeing basic metadata makes it easy to know exactly where you are at all times.
Control speed changes directly in the timeline and say goodbye to complicated Bezier curves and timing graphs. Just select an entire clip or choose a range, then pick a preset speed. Click and drag for fine retiming control and pick from three types of frame blending, including optical flow. Choose a preset for instant rewind, replay, or reverse effects. Apply audio retiming — without affecting pitch — to fit any voiceover or music selection exactly where you need it.
If you have to begin editing before you’ve received all the source material, insert Placeholders to rough together a sequence to be filled in later. You can even use Placeholders to build a complete storyboard in Final Cut Pro.
Accelerated editing with the Skimmer
Place the Skimmer in the timeline to trim with precision, extend an edit, and more — all while your Playhead stays right where you left it.
Final Cut Pro continuously saves all the work in your projects and Events, so you never have to worry about losing unsaved changes.
Compelling, Customizable Effects
Choose from a rich array of visual effects, easy-to-use transitions, and animated templates for titling. See real-time previews and use built-in controls to customize elements as you work.
With a wide selection of high-quality effects in Final Cut Pro, it’s easier than ever to experiment with glows, blurs, lighting, and more. Just select a shot, then choose an effect; skimming the effect thumbnail lets you preview it before applying it. Use the Option key to preview the Amount parameter and see the effect applied to a greater degree as you skim. Apply the powerful chroma or luma keyer to instantly pull a high-quality key, even with uneven backgrounds. Intuitive onscreen controls allow for direct manipulation of effects.
There’s no need to jump into a separate interface to adjust effect keyframes — you have full control right in the timeline, so you can adjust timing based on other content in your project. Choose to show video or audio animation and start adding keyframes. Automatic smoothing between keyframes means less time spent tweaking to get the perfect result.
Royalty-free themed animations
Final Cut Pro ships with a large number of animated titles, transitions, and effects sequences, all created by leading motion graphics designers and a top Hollywood effects house. Preview content in the Themes Browser, then drag and drop to add elements to your project. Simplified controls for each animation let you make adjustments that produce consistently good results, and you can open any item in Motion for greater customization.
Final Cut Pro includes professionally designed animated templates, with intuitive onscreen controls that make it easy to create titles that leap off the screen. With more than 150 animated templates to choose from, you can achieve a polished look immediately. If you want to customize a template or create your own professional-quality titles, you’ll find all the tools you need by opening the animation in Motion 5 — the motion graphics companion to Final Cut Pro. Learn more about Motion
Reposition, rotate, crop, and distort — all with overlaid onscreen controls that let you manipulate the image directly. Use numerical controls in the Video Inspector to fine-tune parameters.
Open the Generators Browser to access a range of automatically generated video elements — including animated backgrounds and varied textures. Just drag and drop to add them to your project.
Ken Burns effect
Animate stills and video without keyframes by using simple onscreen arrows to pick start and end points. For images that contain people, Final Cut Pro recognizes the location of faces to create intelligent results.
Working with Motion
If you have Motion 5 installed, you can right-click any title, transition, or video generator in Final Cut Pro to open it in Motion and customize it. When you save your modified effect in Motion, you can instantly access it in Final Cut Pro and even share it with other editors. Or have a motion graphics designer create unique effects in Motion and save them as easy-to-use, streamlined templates in Final Cut Pro.
Integrated Audio Editing
Built-in professional audio editing features — including libraries of high-quality sound effects and audio effect plug-ins — let you enhance, edit, and mix audio without leaving Final Cut Pro.
You can have Final Cut Pro repair significant audio problems during import, or select clips later for automatic enhancement. Final Cut Pro analyzes audio files for common problems such as excessive background noise, hum, and extreme volume changes. Use the Analyze and Fix function to remove silent audio channels and properly set up common audio channel configurations. Or open the Inspector to access a range of controls that let you fix audio problems or give your clip a unique sound.
Automatic audio sync
When working with DSLRs and video cameras, it’s increasingly common to record high-quality audio separately. Final Cut Pro compares waveforms from the camera audio and second audio source to sync sound automatically — down to the sample level. If camera audio is unavailable, Final Cut Pro uses timecode to match recorded audio with picture. In short, syncing by hand is a thing of the past.
Subframe audio editing
Edit audio with the greatest precision possible. Final Cut Pro supports subframe audio editing at a sample level up to 192kHz, so you can make audio adjustments with a high degree of accuracy.
Grab the fade handles at the edges of any clip to control audio fade-in and fade-out directly in the timeline. Drag the handles to visually line up an audio fade with action, graphics, or other elements in your project. Unlike keyframe-based audio fades, trimming the audio clip leaves the fade handles intact. And with built-in options to adjust the type of fade curve, you have even more precise control.
If you have multiple clips recorded with different microphones or in different environments, use the Match Audio feature to automatically adjust EQ for consistent sound across your project.
Bundled audio effects
Search and preview audio effects in the Effects Browser before applying them to your clips. Select from a collection of more than 100 audio effect plug-ins — including more than 40 from Logic Studio — each with its own specialized interface. All effects can be keyframed and played in real time.
Pick from a variety of stereo or surround presets to improve the sound of your mix. Presets include surround animations that let you instantly fly your 5.1 sound from front to back or side to side. You can also customize your mix using a graphic surround panning interface and easily add keyframes to adjust panning over time.
Professional EQ control
Choose a 10-band or 31-band equalizer for each audio clip to make expert adjustments with high precision. Use one of the many EQ presets to get a quick start on enhancing dialogue and music.
Audio Units plug-ins
Final Cut Pro supports 64-bit, high-quality Audio Units plug-ins from professional third-party effects developers, with access to the full interface and all controls for each plug-in. Choose plug-ins for professional digital signal processing (DSP) effects, noise removal, pitch correction, reverb, and more.
Record a musical performance or a voiceover directly into Final Cut Pro. Choose the input device, monitoring type, and volume — all in the Record Audio interface.
Royalty-free sound effects
Download more than 1300 royalty-free sound effects through a free software update, then access them in the Music and Sound Browser. These are perfect for a wide range of projects.
Intuitive Color Grading
Whether you want to improve the color in a scene or create a distinctive look for an entire film, you’ll find both single-click improvements and fine-grained controls in Final Cut Pro.
All color grading begins with color balancing. The Content Auto-Analysis feature can analyze clips for color balance in the background as they’re imported. After your footage has been analyzed, you can improve the look of any clip in the Event Browser or timeline with a click. The Balance Color feature uses sophisticated algorithms that increase contrast while making skin tones appear more natural.
Save hours of painstaking work by using Match Color to instantly align the look of clips that were shot at different times of day or with different cameras. Simply choose the source shot, click your reference shot, and Final Cut Pro intelligently adjusts colors for the best possible match. You can also use Match Color with a clip of your favorite movie. If you’re looking for a sci-fi grunge or film noir look, find a reference image with the look you want and use it to match color.
Keying and masks
To isolate and change the color of just the sky or the skin tone of the actors in a shot, Final Cut Pro puts a powerful combination of keying and masks at your fingertips. First select the area or color you want to affect, then apply the key by dragging across the image with an eyedropper that dynamically shows the range of selected colors. For additional control, place an adjustable mask around the key. Any mask can be keyframed over time to change shape or move with the action on the screen.
For editors who prefer hands-on control of color, saturation, and exposure, the brand-new Color Board can make quick work of common corrections. Because you can control the highlights, midtones, and shadows separately from the master control, it’s easy to get the look you want.
Waveform, vectorscope, and histograms
Monitor your color and brightness values using the built-in, industry-standard waveform and vectorscope monitors. Final Cut Pro also includes a histogram view commonly found in photo editing programs like Aperture.
One-Step, Optimized Output
Deliver your project to popular devices and destinations in a few clicks. Final Cut Pro offers a wide range of output settings designed for Apple devices, discs, QuickTime, and the web.
The Share function makes it easy to get high-quality results when exporting your project. A broad library of delivery settings optimizes your output for Apple devices such as iPad, iPhone, iPod, and Apple TV. You can even create an output for Podcast Producer. A specially designed email preset ensures that your project is the right size to send as an attachment.
DVD and Blu-ray
Final Cut Pro provides several easy-to-use templates for delivering discs. Choose from a set of themed menus and burn a DVD or Blu-ray disc.* Burn a red laser AVCHD disc using DVD media right on your Mac, or connect an external Blu-ray burner to create a standard Blu-ray disc for longer projects like full-length movies.
HTTP live streaming
HTTP live streaming is becoming the most popular way to make video available over the web. Final Cut Pro simplifies delivery with a specially designed preset optimized for web streaming.
For those who can’t wait for the world to see their latest project, Final Cut Pro includes direct sharing to Facebook, Vimeo, YouTube, and CNN iReport.
When you’re working with ProRes, Export Movie is the fastest and highest-quality output choice for creating a self-contained QuickTime movie. Because Export Movie uses rendered effects files without having to rerender, the output is as fast as a file copy.
Working with Compressor
Use Compressor to access a full range of professional encoding features. Send a project to Compressor or create custom output settings for reuse in Final Cut Pro. You can share these custom settings with other Final Cut Pro editors, even if they don’t have Compressor installed on their workstations.
