New Features In Apple Final Cut Pro X

Final Cut Pro is a non-linear video editing software developed by Macromedia Inc. and then Apple Inc. The most recent version, Final Cut Pro X, runs on Mac personal computers powered by Mac OS X version 10.6.7 or later and using Intel processors. The software allows users to log and transfer video onto a hard drive (internal or external), where it can be edited, processed, and output to a wide variety of formats.Its latest version Final Cut Pro X which was released on September 20,2011,is loaded with a lots of exciting features which attract all the video editors effectively.
The Major one is support for XML.This adds the option to both import and export projects and events in the XML format, meaning users can take XML formatted projects and work on them in Final Cut Pro X.

1.Support for events and projects through Xsan, the company’s technology that allows multiple computers to concurrently access storage
2.Support for media stems (or audio channeling). This lets users assign a “role” to media once it’s imported, so that when it’s time to export things like dialogue, sound effects, and soundtracks, those exports can be done in a single pass.
3.Custom starting timecodes
4.Full-screen view toggle for Mac OS X Lion users
5.GPU-accelerated export (was previously only CPU-based)
6.New theme called “Tribute”
7.One-step transitions on connected clips
The website Publicise it as:-
“An amazing new timeline. Dynamic media organisation that takes the work out of finding clips. And blazing performance.” 

64-bit and multicore-CPU support for speedier performance. Friendlier interface. Compound clips. Auditions for alternative clips. Magnetic trackless timeline. Background processing. Good organization tools—ratings, tagging, auto analysis for faces, scenes, and stabilization.
Can’t import projects from previous Final Cut versions. No multicam input. Limited video display support. Third-party plugins have to be updated for the new code. Custom export settings require separate Compressor app.

Bottom Line:-
Apple has built a completely new, faster, cleaner, and more intuitive digital video editing package. While some professionals may lament its lack of backward compatibility, we predict they’ll eventually be won over by significant speed and usability advances. Meanwhile, prosumer video enthusiasts get a less daunting upgrade path to a pro-level Mac editor.
