  • It has also updated Final Cut Pro and Logic Pro to take advantage.

Apple today announced new updates to Final Cut Pro and Logic Pro to help take advantage of the new M1 Pro and M1 Max chips in its all-new mini-LED MacBook Pro.

The company stated:

Apple today updated Final Cut Pro and Logic Pro with powerful new features for creative professionals, and optimizations that take full advantage of the power and performance of the M1 Pro and M1 Max chips in the all-new MacBook Pro. Professional video editors using Final Cut Pro on the new MacBook Pro can perform tasks never before possible on a Mac, like the ability to play seven streams of 8K ProRes or color grade 8K HDR video with the new Liquid Retina XDR display — a first for any notebook. Final Cut Pro also introduces a new Object Tracker that uses machine learning to automatically detect faces and objects, and match their movement to create beautiful, cinema-quality titles and effects on any Mac. Logic Pro, Apple's pro music creation software, now comes with a complete set of tools for authoring spatial audio music — allowing anyone to mix and export their songs in Dolby Atmos for Apple Music. And musicians can use up to 3x as many plug-ins for recording on the all-new MacBook Pro with M1 Max.

Both apps are available on the Mac App Store.

Apple today announced its stunning new MacBook Pro with 120Hz ProMotion mini-LED display and astonishing new Apple silicon chips.
