Apple Update: FCP X 10.4.7. and macOS 10.15 Catalina: iPad as control monitor, more speed and much m

[10:48 tue,8.October 2019   by ]    

Apple released many important updates for video users last night. First and foremost the next Mac operating system "Catalina", which as macOS 10.15 finalizes Apple&s switch to 64-bit apps. With macOS 10.15, 32-bit applications can no longer be executed. So if you want to update to the free new macOS Catalina you should 1. do a complete backup and 2. check which 32-bit programs (and codecs!) are still running on your existing system. If you are in the middle of a project, you should (as we always recommend) wait with the update.


MacOS 10.15 Catalina

The most spectacular innovation of macOS 10.15 is probably the so-called sidecar function. With this function, screen contents of the main computer can be displayed on an iPad. We haven&t tested it yet but theoretically two essential functions are available: On the one hand the operation of the respective program via iPad and Apple Pencil and on the other hand the configuration of the iPad as video monitor. Above all, we find the latter quite exciting and will take a closer look at it soon. The connection to the iPad as "sidecar" should work wireless as well as wired. Since the iPads have quite high-quality screens, a monitor function would be interesting here in any case (even if probably no display of interlaced material should be possible) - more on this soon ...


Also interesting for video users are the extended functions of the QuickTime Player in macOS Catalina: In the QuiCKTime Inspector video information about color space, HDR format, bit depth, scaling and aspect ratios have been added. Embedded timecode is now displayed and numeric image sequences can (now again) be exported to various other formats. In addition, alpha channel support has been enhanced and Picture has been integrated into Picture functions.

< strong >Final Cut Pro X 10.4.7

In addition to Final Cut Pro X, Motion has also been updated to 5.4.4 and Compressor to 4.4.5. Especially the new FCPX and Motion are said to have received a significant increase in speed under the updated Metal engine. Apple speaks in this context of 15" MacBook Pro users (according to Apple the most popular system for FCPX users), who should achieve up to 20% performance gain. We are particularly excited about this and will take a closer look at it soon.


Final Cut Pro X 10.4.7 has also been optimized for the upcoming Mac Pro and Apple Pro Display XDR. This means that FCPX will support multiple GPUs and up to 28 CPUs. Also new in FCPX 10.4.7 are intelligent tone mappings for editing and displaying HDR material, as well as improved masks and keying tools for HDR video.

The list of new features in Final Cut Pro X 10.4.7 reads as follows:

- New Metal-based processing engine improves playback and accelerates graphics tasks, including rendering, compositing, real-time effects, exporting, and more.
- Enhances graphics performance with support for multiple GPUs, including Radeon Pro Vega II and Radeon Pro Vega II Duo on Mac Pro.
- Optimizes CPU performance with support for up to 28 CPU cores on Mac Pro.
- Accelerates ProResProRes im Glossar erklärt and ProResProRes im Glossar erklärt RAW playback when using the Afterburner card on Mac Pro.

- Simultaneously use up to three Pro Display XDR units connected to Mac Pro - two for the Final Cut Pro interface and one for dedicated monitoring.
- Grade HDR video with enhanced color mask and range isolation tools.
- View HDR video tone-mapped to compatible Standard Dynamic Range displays when using Final Cut Pro on macOS Catalina.
- Select which internal or external GPU is used to accelerate graphics processing.
- Waveform monitor lets you view luminance levels in High Dynamic Range (HDR) PQ media as you edit.
- HSL (hue, saturation, and luma) controls in the Color inspector let you select a range of color with greater precision.
- HDR clips with LUTs applied now appear correctly when you use the Send to Compressor command.
- Improves stability when applying noise reduction to a Rec. 2020 REDCODE RAW clip.
- Lets you define keyboard shortcuts for the Add Color Mask, Add Shape Mask, and Toggle View Mask commands.
- Improves reliability and performance when using the Flow transition.
