A quick overview of the changes to Final Cut Pro in the new 10.2.3 update
Today Apple released its latest update to Final Cut Pro X, version 10.2.3. This is the 17th update since Final Cut Pro X first shipped in June of 2011. Final Cut Pro 10.2.3 is a minor update, but it does introduce a few new features along with several bug fixes and improvements.
First off, if you shoot with the new Canon C300 Mark II using the XF-AVC format introduced last year (an MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 codec in an MXF wrapper), these files (in 1080, 2K, and 4K resolutions) can now be imported into Final Cut Pro X as long as you’ve installed the Canon Plug-in 3.1 for Final Cut Pro X. Apple has created a great XF-AVC knowledge base article explaining exactly what software you will need, and which cameras are supported by Final Cut Pro X.
