Apple has released Final Cut Pro X 10.4.4, Compressor 4.4.2 and Motion 5.4.2, with all three apps now requiring minimum MacOS 10.13.6 High Sierra. Before updating, Apple recommends that you back up the installed versions and any custom settings you may have created.
Final Cut Pro X 10.4.4 introduces the ability to use third-party workflow extensions in the app interface, such as to drag clips, control timeline playback and purchase media. Workflow extensions like Frame.io and Shutterstock can now be downloaded for free from the Mac App Store, and Apple says that multiple third-party extensions will be available continuously.
Finally, the Cut Pro update also provides batch sharing capabilities that allow you to export and encrypt multiple clips in your browser for fast conversion of diaries, adding a comparison image to refer to other consistent color classification frames throughout the project, introducing a high-quality, drag and drop noise reduction effect to reduce grain and video noise and adds the Tiny Planet mapping option when adding 360 degree video to a non-360 degree project to create an interesting spherical look. Version 1
Compressor 4.4.2 moves to a new 64-bit architecture to exploit all memory in your Mac to support high-resolution images and projects while providing backward compatibility to support older 32-bit formats. The coding app also configures automatic audio capabilities when using the QuickTime format to encrypt audio files, allows editing and delivering closed captions in SRT format, and resolves an issue where metadata was not displayed when transcoding to Apple devices.
Motion 5.4 .2 adds an extensive set of color rating tools, including color schemes, color curves, color tone / metering curves, and custom LUT. The special tool also adds a Comic filter to make a picture or a video for a cartoon illustration; improves the Core Text engine to ensure proper rendering and animation of emoji, thin glyphs and uppercase letters in different point sizes; and adds the same Tiny Planet filter found in Final Cut Pro X 10.4.4.
