Another sign that the industry is seeing FCPX as a real heavyweight in the NLE battle is the proliferation of third-party apps for online services. Yesterday we had Pond5, today we have Vimeo.
The new captions feature in the recent FCPX 10.4.1 update is certainly creating a lot of interest. A new version of SpeedScriber, the automated transcription app now lets editors export transcribed text into iTT format for import as captions in Final Cut Pro X. Speedscriber 2 also supports five new languages.
The news from NAB about FCPX keeps on coming. Pond5 has just announced an app that works with Final Cut Pro X enabling you to edit with watermarked previews and then automatically replace the media on the timeline with high resolution footage.
Apple announced last week that all three of their Pro Video Apps would be available for update this Monday. You will need High Sierra to see them, but they are now all available on the Mac App Store.
