Apple has published updates to the Pro Video apps today. Final Cut Pro, Motion and Compressor get new features, iMovie for the Mac gets an update too. There's also an update of Pro Video Formats to 2.2.3.

Gah! The only update that shows up for me is Motion 5.6.1. Is there a way to force App Store to reload/re-check for updates?
EDIT: Yes! FCP 10..6.2 appeared now, that was the important one, been needing the Voice Isolation for my current project, and it seems to be working great!
Now just waiting for Compressor to make itself available for download... also no pro codec updates so far!
EDIT2: Now the Compressor and Pro Codec updates turned up as well!

Got FCP, Motion, and Compressor... still no Pro Video Formats though. [EDIT: PVF just popped up]

ColorFinale on M1 is apparently broken with this update (got an email from them as I was installing), but they're working on it.

I believe that CF2 is broken on M1 machines, not Intels. The dialogue isolation feature requires Monterey OS. There's also a Pixelmator Pro update, if you use that.

Cutting a narrative pilot on FCPX, far enough along and with enough backup/redundancy across machines that I upgraded to see how VI works.

I've gone through the project and compared Voice Isolation against Isotope RX on some troublesome lav, boom and button mics.

Voice Isolation works astonishingly well. In most instances it sounds better than the venerated RX Voice De-Noise.

So much so that if it were not for RX De-Reverb, De-Ess, and De-Plosive, I'd do away with iZotope altogether.

I'm having CF problems (vers 1.6, 1.8, 2.2) on ALL my FCPX (various vers) machines over here and trying to noodle things out. All Intel and no M1s... yet. (Closed to being completely stumped on this one.)

Out of curiosity, what did the Pro Formats update add? Or was this simply required to enable the Voice Isolation?

Here's what I found at Root / Library / Apple / System / Library / Receipts... no info yet on what changed in those bundles, but they've all been touched. Also found AES3Audio.component also updated.

anyone know if the export/caching/title issue on M1Max was fixed with this update yet?

Not sure I'm familiar with this one. How do you trigger it?

Not exactly the vid I was looking for but it shows how you can dial out the specific freqs that dog pile on and compete with those of the human voice. Not so much handy when you have but one audio track but with additional music or SFx tracks it makes a considerable difference.

much more lag here, on intel macpro 12 core , spacebar play/ stop lag, broke a lot in command post , the guys are very fast !, respect !, but still a lot is much slower. 10.6.2 slows down working speed for me . thinking about going back, speed is more important than dupe detection.
i'm on latest big sur. i think 11.6.5.

...spacebar play/ stop lag, broke a lot in command post...
Mystified why my spacebar play was so disruptive on playback until I quit Command Post and then FCP went back to normal. This behavior plagued me BEFORE the update so there's been a heavy CP foot stepping on my dress hemline for a while now.

Can't update yet because of plugins but can anybody confirm that Dupe Detection in FCP doesn't work on retimed clips?

Out of curiosity, which plugins (if you don't mind sharing)?

Cheers.

On all 3 of my Macs there was a "Pro Video Formats 2.2.3" software update available after updating FCP to 10.6.2. However this seems to be an old update

support.apple.com/kb/DL2050?viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_US

All my Macs are on the current version of Monterey.

It appears to be an old update due to the date at the bottom of the KB article, but if you download the package, it is current - everything in there has a creation date of 3/30/22 or 4/6/22.

I think the KB article was copy/pasted from the previous update, and they didn't update the date at the bottom.

As someone who reluctantly has to edit on Premiere instead of FCP X for chunks of my work there are actually a couple of things I wish this or a recent update had included where I think Adobe is ahead of Apple. This comes with the caveat that of course it makes a big difference in what kind of content you're editing, but....

1) Transcriptions and captions
The auto-transcribe and caption generation in Premiere is SOOO incredibly useful and powerful, I think Apple is quite behind in this regard. Social media video is huge, captions are everywhere. Even that aside, being able to transcribe an interview and find a segment that a producer has given you the wrong timecode for (which is far more often than you'd think) without recourse to third party software is something FCP X could hugely benefit from. Surely with a technology like Siri it should be fairly easy for Apple to implement? Not to mention being able to import and export scripts and captions tracks in multiple formats for subbing, correction, etc.

2) Edit / Cut detection
I appreciate this might be quite specialist but if you're working with video files that are not rushes, ie. pre-compiled sources lke news agency packages etc, Premiere's auto-splicing of video into separate clips is super useful and powerful. I know there are 3rd party apps for FCP X that do this, I have tried them (it?), I found it slow and unwieldy and hence not very useful.

On the flip side.....

3) I totally love the new motion tracking speed and power. Amazing for those text effects with text / astons tracking moving subjects or working with camera moves. I have only used it in anger on one film yet with footage from a bike race and in some cases it feels almost 'too sensitive', or too good(!), but it's super-powerful. Unleash this machine learning AI power on speech and captions please Apple!
