What’s new in Final Cut Pro 10.0.1

Final Cut Pro 10.0.1 includes a number of new features, enhancements, and changes. The most significant features are introduced below.


You can use the new roles metadata labels to organize clips in your events and projects, control the appearance of the Timeline, and export separate video or audio files (also known as media stems) for broadcast delivery, audio mixing, or post-production. For example, you can export roles as media stems in a combined, multitrack QuickTime file, or as separate audio or video files. During the export process you can assign mono, stereo, or surround output for your audio channels.

For more information, see Roles overview and Destinations preferences.

Storage area network (SAN) locations

You can now add network volumes as storage locations for events and projects. When you remove SAN locations in Final Cut Pro, other users on the network can work with the events and projects stored on those locations.

XML export and import

Final Cut Pro now supports XML import and export so that you can transfer your project and event information to and from systems and third-party applications that don’t recognize Final Cut Pro projects and events.

For more information, see Use XML to transfer projects and events.
