Video editors can now play up to seven streams of 8K ProRes or colour grade 8K HDR video at full resolution using the latest Final Cut Pro 10.6 update and the M1 Pro and M1 Max, and export ProRes video over five times faster than before.

In addition, the latest version of Final Cut Pro includes a new Object Tracker, which uses machine learning to detect faces and objects and match their movement to create cinema-quality titles and effects on any Mac. On the new 16-inch MacBook Pro, object tracking analysis is up to 5x faster, taking advantage of the Neural Engine’s machine learning capabilities to speed up the detection of faces and objects in video.

Motion and Compressor, two Final Cut Pro companion apps, were also updated today. A complex project can render up to twice as fast and play two streams of 8K video at five times the frame rate with Motion on the new MacBook Pro. Meanwhile, graphic artists can now use masks, shapes, 3D objects, behaviours, and filters in conjunction with object tracking. A new Neon filter gives images, shapes, text, and other objects a vibrant glow.

Compressor can transcode HEVC video up to twice as fast and ProRes video up to ten times faster on the new MacBook Pro. For the first time, Compressor can convert Canon Cinema RAW Light video files to other professional formats such as ProRes and H.264, and Watch Folders can automatically encode content placed in a specific folder in the file system.

Apple’s pro music creation software, Logic Pro, now includes a full set of tools for authoring spatial audio music, allowing users to mix and export Dolby Atmos songs for Apple Music. On the all-new MacBook Pro with M1 Max, musicians can use up to three times as many plug-ins for recording.

In addition, 13 Logic Pro plug-ins, including Space Designer, Limiter, Loudness Meter, and Tremolo, have been updated to take advantage of spatial audio in Logic Pro 10.7.

All of the new Producer Packs1 that were introduced in GarageBand this summer are now included in Logic Pro. Boys Noize, Mark Lettieri, Mark Ronson, Oak Felder, Soulection, Take A Daytrip, Tom Misch, and TRAKGIRL have all created beats, loops, and samples that musicians can use. Users of Logic now have access to 2,800 new loops, 50 new kits, and 120 new patches that they can use in their own songs, all of which are royalty-free.
