  • Apple has updated its video editing app Final Cut Pro.
  • The new update is all about bug fixes.
  • Final Cut Pro sells for $299.99 and is in the Mac App Store.

Apple has updated Final Cut Pro with a number of fixes including one that impacted the importing of some FCPXML files and another that broke the Undo functionality. The new update is available for download from the Mac App Store today.

Apple's video editing app, which sells for $299.99, now sits at version 10.6.1 with this release very much all about the bug fixes. One of those bugs prevented the successful import of some FCPXML files, while another effectively broke the Undo feature for people who had their language configured as Spanish.

The full rundown of what's changed includes:

  • Fixes an issue that could prevent successful import of FCPXML 1.9 and 1.10 files
  • Fixes an issue where the Command-Z keyboard shortcut would not perform an Undo if Language was set to Spanish in System Preferences
  • Fixes an issue in the Export File share destination where the Video Codec setting was unavailable after choosing Computer as the format
  • Improves reliability during playback of AC3 audio

Those who already have a previous version of Final Cut Pro installed will see the update in the App Store already. Everyone else can go buy it from the App Store (opens in new tab) now, priced at the aforementioned $299.99. Considering the target audience of Final Cut Pro, and its capabilities, that price isn't as high as it sounds! Many would argue it's the best Mac video editor you can buy.
