Apple updates Final Cut Studio

Adds fixes for Final Cut Pro and Compressor

Apple has released an update for Final Cut Studio 2.0, its professional video suite. According to Apple, Pro Applications Update 2008-01 includes Final Cut Pro 6.0.3 and Compressor 3.0.3.

The Final Cut Pro update resolves five issues including one that would warn that a project was unreadable or too new for that version of Final Cut Pro. A problem with images being scaled when exported has also been fixed - with the update still images are now exported at their native export ratio.

When using multiple filters in a mixed-format sequence, Final Cut Pro now correctly uses the aspect ratio of the individual clip and not that of the overall sequence. Version 6.0.3 also includes a fix for reconnecting filenames that contain slashes.

Compressor 3.0.3 includes a couple of fixes that will allow users to create media files for Apple TV with anamorphic (non-square) pixel aspect ratios. Users can now also include Dolby Digital AC-3 audio in files destined for the Apple TV. The H.264 for Apple Devices Encoder pane has a tickbox that allows you to include Dolby Digital AC-3 tracks (with 5.1-channel surround sound) in output media files intended for Apple TV playback.

Pro Applications Update 2008-01 is also recommended for users of Final Cut Server, Logic Studio and Shake. The update is available from Apple's website.
