Well, we were not disappointed as today Apple announced the first Apple Silicon Macs. We also got a release date for the new MacOS Big Sur.
Apple has announced a special event next Tuesday entitled 'One More Thing'. Will we see a range of new silicon Macs? Will we see a new version of Final Cut Pro X?
No surprise here as Apple said in its event on Monday that Thursday was going to be Big Sur day. It's out, should you upgrade?
Today Apple has updated all the pro video and audio apps. Final Cut Pro updates 10.5, Motion to 5.5 and Compressor to 4.5. A few new features for FCP, but all will now run on Apple silicon! We list ALL the new features.
We thought it wouldn't take long before updates were released to the Apple Silicon compatible Pro Apps. Final Cut Pro and Compressor get an extra feature and stability improvements. Big Sur and iMovie get some love too. We also have a new Apple Wsupport article on sharing.
In the blast of publicity surrounding the new M1 chips and the contemporaneous release of macOS Big Sur, the new capability of Thunderbolt 'hubbing' got slightly overlooked.
In Live Show 13 we talked about WWDC and what that means for the Pro Apps (including Final Cut Pro X) running on the new Arm-based processors. We have seen there's a new FCPX, Motion and Compressor coming - what else do we know? Don't miss Jace Sparks talk about future API's for FCPX!
On Tuesday the 6th of October, we welcomed Larry O’Connor, CEO and Founder of OWC for our FCP.co Live Thunderbolt 4 special. What is it? What does it do and why is it better than Thunderbolt 3?
With Big Sur being released today, the race is on for developers to update their software to run on the new MacOS. Straight out off the gate is Arctic Whiteness with Final Cut Library Manager. **Update Now works with 10.5**
It's been a week since the new M1 silicon Macs were announced. The reviews are starting to come in, so we thought we would list the ones we thought had done a good job.
The biggest Apple news of 2020 was the start of the transition of the Mac to Apple silicon. Alex Gollner writes about how the transition might go over the next two years. Tell us what you think in the comments below!
A week later and the information from a packed WWDC is beginning to sink in. The move to Apple Silicon will bring advantages to FCPX such as speed and resource use, but what about new possibilities with new technology?
Where were you this time last year? We were waiting to go into WWDC to see the new Mac Pro and Pro Display XDR for the first time. This year? Nobody is attending, but we do have the Keynote livestream. Will we see the beginning of the transition from Intel to Arm-based processors?
