Object Tracker and Cinematic mode.

Elevate your creativity with the Object Tracker. Final Cut Pro uses powerful machine learning to detect faces and objects, then matches their movement with titles and effects. It also allows you to adjust focus points and depth of field on clips captured in Cinematic mode on iPhone 13.

Creativity that moves.

Use the Object Tracker to add dynamic text or color correction to moving footage. Drag a title, graphic, or effect directly into the viewer to detect faces and other objects using powerful machine learning. Analyze the motion of your target — accelerated by the Apple Neural Engine — in a single click and instantly match its movement. Apply tracking data to other text and graphics to enhance your work even more.

The ultimate
cinematic effect.

Final Cut Pro can transform the look of video shot in Cinematic mode on iPhone 13.1 With a revolutionary click-to-track feature, you can choose focus points in a shot and change them over time. You can also adjust a clip’s depth‑of‑field effect with a slider in the inspector, or use keyframes to change the amount of blur in already captured material.

Unrivaled pro performance.

With optimizations for Apple silicon and the power of its Metal engine, Final Cut Pro allows you to edit more complex projects and work with larger frame sizes, higher frame rates, and more effects — all at incredible speeds. And it’s built to harness the extreme power of the new Mac Studio or MacBook Pro for next-level performance.

Optimized for Apple silicon

Final Cut Pro features breathtaking performance and efficiency on Mac computers with Apple silicon. Tap into superfast unified memory shared across the CPU, the GPU, and the Apple Neural Engine to play back more high-resolution video streams and render your movie in record time.

Built for extreme speed
on the new Mac Studio

Fully optimized for the M1 Max and M1 Ultra on the new Mac Studio, Final Cut Pro transforms your video post-production with unrivaled performance. Complex tasks, like video analysis for object tracking or automatic cropping, are lightning fast on the Apple Neural Engine. And with M1 Ultra, ProRes performance is astonishing — with more streams of full-quality playback than ever before. Creators can work in 8K ProRes video and handle advanced editing, effects work, and color correction all in real time — no rendering required.

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.

New

Duplicate Detection

Quickly display any audio or video that appears more than once in your project with highlighted clip ranges in the timeline. Or you can list all matches in the Timeline Index. Select a clip to show its duplicates and use keyboard shortcuts to instantly navigate between them.

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. And because Final Cut Pro, Motion, and Compressor all share the same Metal architecture, you’ll experience blazing performance and consistent rendering across applications.

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.

High Dynamic Range

Work closer to reality than ever before with HDR video. Import, edit, grade, and deliver incredibly lifelike images with Final Cut Pro. Shoot on industry-standard cinema cameras, or in stunning Dolby Vision with the latest iPhone models. High-resolution scopes reflect HDR brightness levels as you edit, and tone mapping lets you easily convert HDR to Standard Dynamic Range output for broadcast. You can view beautiful HDR content on a variety of Mac computers that use the reserve brightness of the display to show an extended range of light levels.

HDR on Apple displays

View High Dynamic Range video the way it was meant to be seen. The amazing MacBook Pro display delivers up to 7.7 million pixels and 1000 nits of sustained brightness for HDR editing, grading, and delivery with Final Cut Pro. Or connect the gorgeous Pro Display XDR to your Mac for a full 6K HDR playback and finishing solution.

ProRes RAW. The flexibility of RAW with the performance of ProRes.

Import, edit, and grade original, untouched footage with RAW data straight from your camera sensor — without sacrificing any speed or smoothness. Create native ProRes RAW files using Atomos recorders and the DJI Inspire 2 drone and experience all the creative advantages of RAW with the real-time performance of ProRes.

ProRes performance

Remarkably smooth playback and real-time, multistream editing are part of the ProRes RAW package. The format is optimized for macOS and the latest Mac computers, allowing you to render and export faster than with other RAW formats. And if you’re working on the new Mac Studio or MacBook Pro, the M1 Pro, M1 Max, and M1 Ultra chips further accelerate ProRes RAW performance. Since ProRes RAW files are smaller than standard formats, you can fit more footage on every card.

RAW flexibility

Work with untouched image data directly from your camera sensor. RAW files provide maximum flexibility for adjusting the look of your video while extending brightness and shadows — an ideal combination for HDR workflows. And new ProRes RAW tools in Final Cut Pro provide enhanced settings for ISO, color temperature, and exposure offset from supported devices for an even deeper level of control.

360° graphics and effects

Easily add 2D and 3D titles to your 360° video and apply blurs, glows, and other 360° effects. Or create more advanced 360° motion graphics in Motion, then add them directly to your Final Cut Pro project. You can even add 360° video to standard projects, using the Tiny Planet effect to create all-new spherical looks and animations.
