Once Apple pulled the plug on QuickTime Player Pro 7, the industry started to look elsewhere for an all-purpose media tool that could facilitate the proper playback, inspection, and encoding of media files.

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.
