Apple has some huge improvements for Final Cut Pro X in store for this year.

Apple has issued what it describes a “significant” update to its Final Cut Pro X software today, adding a number of features that many users missed with the initial release. Those features include multicam editing, XML support, advanced chroma editing, and more.

The 10.0.3 update is available to download now from the Mac App Store, and was accompanied by an Apple press release which reads:

Apple today released Final Cut Pro X v10.0.3, a significant update to its revolutionary professional video editing application, which introduces multicam editing that automatically syncs up to 64 angles of video and photos; advanced chroma keying for handling complex adjustments right in the app; and enhanced XML for a richer interchange with third party apps and plug-ins that support the fast growing Final Cut Pro X ecosystem. Available today as a free update from the Mac App Store, Final Cut Pro X v10.0.3 also includes a beta of broadcast monitoring that supports Thunderbolt devices as well as PCIe cards.

The company’s press release also talks about some of the third-party add-ons that have arrived since Final Cut Pro X was launched seven months ago, such as the new 7toX application from Intelligent Assistance, which uses XML to import Final Cut 7 projects into the latest release.

Final Cut Pro X is available to purchase for $299.99 from the Mac App Store. News users can take advantage of a free 30-day trial before they commit to their purchase, which is available to download through the Apple website.
