If you've got an hour and a half spare, grab a coffee and enjoy Alex Lindsay, Steve Martin and Mark Spencer talk about Final Cut Pro X. Packed full of FCPX information with an added bonus of how to make shot glasses out of CDs.
Is it a late night poker game? Has Alex gone 'all in' and bet his iPad? No, it's a two hour chat about Final Cut Pro X, Motion 5 and a bit of Compressor dealt from the bottom of the pack.
Apple has announced a discounted bundle of Pro Apps for educational users. Final Cut Pro X, Logic Pro X, Motion 5, Compressor 4, and MainStage 3 are available for just $199.99 for educational use.
We might be close to the release of FCPX, but Apple is still issuing updates for Final Cut Studio and the other creative applications.
The updates we have been waiting for are finally here. We take a look a the new features of Final Cut Pro X, Motion and Compressor and put the software through some tests. We publish information on the new features, the test results, the recommendations and the gotchas.
Today Apple has released an update to Final Cut Pro X to 10.4.9. It brings new proxies, proxy relinking, media management and more. Also an update to Motion gives the ability to import 3D models- Wow!
Apple announced last week that all three of their Pro Video Apps would be available for update this Monday. You will need High Sierra to see them, but they are now all available on the Mac App Store.
A slightly unexpected but welcome early Christmas present, Apple have updated FCPX, Motion and Compressor. No new features though, mainly just bug fixes.
Apple has released updates to Final Cut Pro X to version 10.2, Motion to version 5.2 and Compressor to version 4.2. A lot of new eye-candy, some much needed new features and some large speed gains. Their 15th update to FCPX is still free and available for download now.

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.
Possibly one of our shortest ever articles, today Apple updated Compressor to version 4.4.3. Just one thing added, support for ProRes RAW and ProRes RAW HQ
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.
Jasper Siegers very kindly sent us this information about how he uses Compressor Server, free open-source software that his company developed. As part of the trio of Apple's Video Pro Apps, it is good to see this often overlooked programme get a big functionality boost. You want watch folders or want to set up a cluster? Jasper's app might just be the solution.
This week we look once again at the amazing 3D text capabilities in Motion and we also refresh our Compressor skills by looking at presets and default locations.
A bit later in the week due to a few technical problems, this episode answers a question we hear often: Do I need to buy Compressor if I can export directly out of FCPX?
We've been expecting it for a while, Apple have released a free update to Final Cut Pro X. New features are included and some features announced for the future.
Updates to all of the Pro video Apps today -Motion looks the most interesting with a new Auto-Shrink option in text layouts.
A round of updates to the Pro Apps for January. All three video applications get bug fixes and one very important change of behaviour in Final Cut Pro X 10.3.2.
It's update time for the Pro Apps today. No new features, just bug fixes for all three and a few tweaks to iMovie.
Before you reach for the download button, these are all minor updates to add resolution to the apps for the new retina display MacBook Pros. No new features so if you are mid-project then maybe not a good idea.
Another episode of MacBreak Studio and this time Mark and Steve take a closer look at GPU rendering in Final Cut Pro X and distributed rendering with Compressor.
Matrox have taken a different approach to Thunderbolt connectivity with their I/O products compared to other manufacturers. Instead of building new models with Thunderbolt connectors, the adaptor allows new and existing products to use the superfast technology.
Ripple Training has just published a new episode featuring Final Cut Pro 10.2, Motion 5.2, Compressor 4.2
Sorenson has launched Squeeze 8 Pro, the new version can now output ProRes files directly from within Avid. Codec specific add-ons available for existing customers.
Oliver doesn't go for link bait headlines or 'First Look' reviews that get published 30 minutes after a product is released. He takes his time and writes probably some of the best articles on editing on the internet.
Completely inspired by a great thread on our popular Forum, we take a quick look at some of the lesser-known, but still important new features and improvements in the FCPX 10.4 update. You did know you could do GIFs from the timeline didn't you?
Sorenson have launched two new versions of Squeeze, their cross-platform compression program. If Compressor 4 hasn't enough output formats and codecs, then this might be your answer.
First article of the New Year and it's one that a lot of people have asked for, real statistics on the Apple Pro Video Apps running on a new iMac Pro. Ben Balser had a new machine arrive just in time for the holiday break. He gave it a good test, it's fast, but it's not all great news.
The first of a new month, so time for a roundup of the Final Cut Pro X, Motion & Compressor tutorials that we have liked over the past few weeks in June. Something for everyone!
Following his two very successful previous manuals, Edgar Rothermich has released a graphically enhanced manual for Compressor 4.
We had a rather irate email from a reader saying that these tutorials had no place on our website. We disagree as we think anybody whether a student or author with Jordonian status has voice and a place.
The wait is over! There are updates to all the three main Apple video applications and an update to the Pro Video Formats as well. Yes, it looks like the timecode bug in the dashboard of FCPX has been fixed!
A busy few days for everybody! Apple's video Pro Apps all get an update and the fourth FCPX Creative Summit takes place. We have corralled the videos from the past week with multiple languages and multiple opinions on the update!
