Apple Final Cut Pro 4.0 Upgrade for Mac ... SD, online or offline, Final Cut Pro 4 has the creative tools, professional features, and flexibility to meet the grueling demands of the post-production industry.
Its feature-rich toolset and new customization capabilities include support for dynamic trimming and customizable keyboards. RT Extreme, an enhanced multistream, real-time architecture, supports an increased number of video streams and effects. This allows for greater previewing control and an expanded selection of effects and transitions with a scalable number of streams. Multitrack audio mixing, multichannel output from a new mixing console, real-time Mac OS X Audio Units filters, precise fader automation, and real-time audio effects raise the bar for nonlinear editing - based audio editing.
Final Cut Pro 4 also includes new tools that give digital artists the freedom to explore their creativity and produce high-quality, professional results: LiveType, a resolution independent title generator; and Soundtrack, an innovative music composition tool for video editors that makes creating custom music scores incredibly easy. Also included is Compressor, a new batch encoding application that delivers pristine-quality video rivaling that of any other software MPEG-2/MPEG-4 encoder.
Uncompromising image quality, broad format support, and corrective finishing tools make Final Cut Pro 4 appropriate for SD and HD broadcast applications. Broadcast quality codecs let online editors work with 8- and 10-bit uncompressed YUV 4: 2: 2 SD and HD video for finishing. New High Dynamic Range (HDR) imaging goes beyond 8- and 10-bit video, compositing elements using a full 32 bits per channel (floating point) to process effects with unprecedented clarity and precision. With built-in support for Panasonic's DVCPRO50 format, Final Cut Pro has the power to deliver professional YUV 4: 2: 2, broadcast-quality images from the field or edit bay over a single FireWire connection.
Final Cut Pro 4 uses a new XML standards-based composition and metadata format that bridges the gap between disparate edit systems, asset management databases, and customized post-production workflows. The XML interchange format gives Final Cut Pro 4 the flexibility to fit into any production pipeline. A new plug-in API, enhanced EDL support, and FXScript make it the most extensible nonlinear editor available.
