The Latest Final Cut Pro X Update Brings the Features Pro Editors Have Been DemandingS

Final Cut Pro X received a shiny new update today, outfitted with support for multicam editing and support for external broadcast monitors. But most importantly is support for a new third-party plugin which lets editors import their sessions from legacy version of Final Cut Pro. Something users had long lamented.

According to PC Mag, the new $10 plug-in, names 7toX, will take your old FCP sessions in the .EDL format and convert it to a compatible XML file, which Apple stands firmly behind.

Key to the app's development, according to {Apple exec Richard Townhill], was the new plug-in API. "We wanted to make sure that we were building APIs for Final Cut Pro X that were richer and more powerful than what we had in previous releases. We've actually got a faster growing ecosystem than we've ever had before."

The update is free and available now, along with 7toX. Now will you fanatics quit with the sobbing? [PC Mag]
