Editors looking for an alternative to Apple Final Cut Pro view Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 as the logical choice, but there's more to this release than a hypothetical FCP 8. I've reviewed and used each version of the Creative Suite for many years and Premiere Pro is one of the few NLEs where each new...

Apple Final Cut Pro X 10.4 introduced new, advanced color correction tools to this editing application, including color wheels, curves, and hue vs. saturation curves.

At the end of December, Apple made good on the release of the new iMac Pro and started selling and shipping the new workstations.

To close out 2017, the developers are back with Pixelmator Pro, a next generation version of the original.

Creating multichannel, “split-track” master exports of your final sequences is something that should be a standard step in all of your productions.

They’ve teased us for two years, but now it’s finally out. Avid Technology has released its free nonlinear editing application, Media Composer | First.

George Clooney’s latest film, Suburbicon, originated over a decade ago as a screenplay by Joel and Ethan Coen. Clooney picked it up when the Coens decided not to produce the film themselves.
