The tools you need. From start to finishing.

With great new features and an intuitive design, Final Cut Pro accelerates post-production. So editors can create and deliver at the speed of thought.

Performance

Final Cut Pro is built on a powerful 64-bit architecture, which allows you to work with complex projects, larger frame sizes, higher frame rates, and more effects. It’s optimized for the high-performance CPU and graphics card in your Mac — including the new iMac Pro.

Multicam

The industry’s most advanced multicam editing lets you automatically sync up to 64 angles of video with different formats, frame sizes, and frame rates. View up to 16 angles at once in the Angle Viewer. And open the Angle Editor timeline to move, sync, trim, add effects, or color grade individual clips.

Motion and Compressor

Create stunning effects and sweeping graphics with Motion, including studio-quality 2D and 3D titles you can open and adjust in Final Cut Pro. Use Compressor to create custom export settings and streamline delivery of your movie to the iTunes Store.

New

360° video. Take your work further. In every direction.

Final Cut Pro includes a complete toolset for importing, editing, and delivering both monoscopic and stereoscopic 360° video.

360° editing

Import and edit 360° equirectangular footage in Final Cut Pro. Open the 360° viewer to see a headset view of your footage, and take advantage of simple tools for changing orientation, straightening the horizon, removing camera rigs, and more.

360° graphics and effects

Easily add 2D and 3D titles to your 360° video and apply blurs, glows, and other 360° effects. Or create even more advanced 360° motion graphics in Motion, then add them directly to your Final Cut Pro project.

VR headset playback

Watch your 360° video in real time with a VR headset like the HTC Vive. Choose to mirror the headset view in Final Cut Pro, or turn off mirroring to watch video in the headset while independently controlling a separate view on your monitor.

New

Advanced color grading.
Every pixel closer to perfection.

Professional color grading tools are built into Final Cut Pro, including a dedicated color inspector with color wheels, color curves, and hue/saturation curves. Use keyframes to adjust corrections over time, and apply camera and creative Look Up Tables (LUTs) for the perfect look. All color grading tools and scopes support High Dynamic Range (HDR) video.

LUTs. Preset color with a click.

Final Cut Pro automatically applies the correct transform Look Up Table (LUT) when importing LOG footage recorded with supported cameras from ARRI, Canon, Sony, and more. Use the Custom LUT effect to audition and apply creative effects in the timeline.

Image simulates the effect of HDR.

Shed new light with High Dynamic Range video.

Now you can import, edit, grade, and deliver incredibly realistic images by using HDR video with Final Cut Pro. Scopes automatically adjust to reflect HDR brightness levels, and tone mapping lets you easily convert HDR to Standard Dynamic Range (SDR) output for broadcast.

Step up from iMovie to Final Cut Pro.

iMovie is the easiest way to start making movies. And when you’re ready to ramp up production, it’s effortless to switch to Final Cut Pro from iMovie for iOS or iMovie for Mac. You’ll cut faster and more precisely with advanced editing tools, improve the look of your projects with third-party plug–ins, and find it easy to integrate video recorded with professional cameras from RED, Sony, Canon, and more. You can import your iMovie projects right into Final Cut Pro, so you won’t miss a beat — or a cut — when you upgrade.
