Apple updates Final Cut Pro to v10.4.4. The update brings Extensions from, Shutterstock and CatDV, plus other features including Batch Sharing, Video Noise Reduction and Comparison Viewer.

Workflow extensions:

  • Connect to existing third-party accounts to access projects, download media, and purchase content.
  • Deep integration allows extensions to control timeline playback, navigation, clip markers, and more.
  • Workflow extensions include tools for collaboration (, stock media (Shutterstock), and asset management (CatDV).

Batch share:

  • Export and transcode multiple clips in the browser — with or without a camera LUT — for fast turnaround of dailies and other reviews.
  • Select and export multiple projects.
  • Combine batch sharing with bundles to encode multiple files to multiple formats in one step.
  • Monitor export progress in the background tasks window.

Video noise reduction:

  • Apply the high-quality, drag-and-drop noise reduction effect to reduce grain and video noise.
  • Use simple controls to quickly adjust the look and amount of noise reduction.
  • Easily change processing order by dragging the noise reduction effect in the inspector.
  • The viewer shows the noise reduction effect when paused and disables the effect when skimming for optimal performance.
  • Apply 360° noise reduction to 360° video clips while preserving a flawless seam.

Timecode window:

  • View project and source timecode in one or more floating timecode windows.
  • Resize the timecode window and drag any one to a second screen.
  • Choose to display clip names and role names.
  • Color coding in the timecode window matches the colors of roles in the timeline.

Comparison Viewer:

  • Open the Comparison Viewer to reference other frames for consistent color grading across your project.
  • Quickly select the previous or next clip in the timeline as your reference frame.
  • Save any image to the frame browser to reference it later in the Comparison Viewer.

Tiny Planet:

  • Select the Tiny Planet mapping option when adding 360º video to a non-360° project to create interesting spherical looks.
  • Use the roll and tilt parameters to wrap your tiny planet effect into an infinite cylinder.
  • Adjust the pan parameter to move your subject horizontally within the tiny planet.
  • Animate the field of view to transition from a close up to a satellite view flying high above your footage.

Other new features:

  • View, edit, and deliver closed captions in the SRT format, which is used by a wide range of websites including Facebook.
  • Choose to burn closed captions into your video to ensure they appear at all times during playback.
