The beginning of a powerful friendship.

Revolutionary hardware meets cutting-edge software. It’s like Mac Pro and Final Cut Pro X were made for each other — because they are made for each other. Edit and deliver like never before. Work with multiple streams of 4K ProRes at full resolution. Play back complex graphics and effects in real time without rendering. Even output your 4K video to Ultra HD displays via HDMI and Thunderbolt 2.

4K Powerhouse

Final Cut Pro has been updated for the next-generation architecture in Mac Pro, providing unprecedented performance when editing and monitoring 4K video and working with complex graphics and effects. With dual GPUs, each available with 2GB, 3GB, or 6GB of dedicated VRAM and up to 2048 stream processors, you can seamlessly edit full-resolution 4K video while rendering multiple effects in the background — and still have enough power to connect up to three high-resolution 4K displays.


Smoothly edit multiple streams of 4K at full resolution. An enhanced playback architecture paired with the power of Mac Pro lets you edit Multicam with up to 16 simultaneous streams of 4K ProRes. And if you prefer to work directly with 4K camera formats, Final Cut Pro X natively supports Sony XAVC, REDCODE RAW, and more.

Real-Time Graphics and Effects

Final Cut Pro uses both graphics cards to play back effects the moment you add them, so you can color grade, retime video, and apply complex filters — all in real time. And Final Cut Pro X is optimized to use both GPUs for demanding tasks like optical flow analysis, which lets you create stunning slow motion faster than ever.

Video Monitoring

Final Cut Pro supports external monitoring at resolutions up to 4K. Use the HDMI port on Mac Pro to connect directly to a high‑quality display. Or use third‑party I/O devices for gorgeous 10‑bit video monitoring via Thunderbolt 2.*

*4K video monitoring via Thunderbolt 2 requires a Thunderbolt 2–enabled I/O device like the AJA Io 4K or Blackmagic UltraStudio 4K.

High-Speed Export

Final Cut Pro harnesses the power of both GPUs in Mac Pro to accelerate rendering and export in the background, so you can deliver files as fast as you edit. Create 4K ProRes masters and even export directly to YouTube at 4K resolution.
