Apple has released updates for its Final Cut Pro, Motion, and Compressor professional video editing applications.

Final Cut Pro 10.2 will now let editors create 3D titles. You can create titles with customizable 3D text, using one of the available templates and the large set of text styles available in Final Cut Pro, or import new elements created with Motion 5.2. From Apple:

Users can choose from a set of text styles to customize the look of their titles with hundreds of combinations of materials, lighting and edges, and instantly convert 2D titles to 3D and see changes in real time. Final Cut Pro 10.2 also lets editors view up to four video scopes simultaneously, for more precision when color grading, and includes improved Shape masks on any effect that can be saved as presets for quick access later.

Motion 5.2 helps extend Final Cut Pro's new title capabilities. You can create titles with multiple lights and cameras, as well as realistic shadows and reflections. You can also use a number of third-party extras to create new 3D titles, and easily send your work back to Final Cut Pro or Compressor 4.2.

Compressor 4.2 makes it easier to prepare your work for distribution on the iTunes Store. You just choose the elements you need for the store, like the movie itself, the trailer, and the closed captions, and then Compressor will create the iTunes Store Package, which you can then submit to an iTunes Delivery Partner.

You can find all of these updates on the Mac App Store now.
