Pro Pushed, New Pro Apps Updated

December 20, 2013 - Dave Hecei

pro apps Not too long after Apple released their new Mac Pro desktop, orders went from shipping by December 30 to 'February'. While this is bad news to those wanting a new Mac Pro for the holidays, there is other good news. Apple has updated their 'Pro' Apps, mostly to take advantage of the new hardware inside the Mac Pro. This includes Final Cut Pro X, Logic X, Motion, and Compressor.

The new Mac Pro pushed ship date is a curious dilemma. The Pro is being assembled in Texas so when it rolls of the production line it's actually in the US - there is no ocean to cross. As long as they have all the parts they need units should hit store shelves in record time. So the problem is either Apple didn't anticipate the number of inaugural sales or there is some part that is in short demand. Wouldn't it be something if it's the former and not the latter? Even if Apple currently is saying February for shipping, there is always the possibility it ships earlier. I've ordered from Apple where they've stated '2 weeks' and I got it in a week.

So, you've ordered your new Mac Pro and it's now delayed, at least you can update all your 'pro' apps to get you ready. Final Cut Pro X (FCPX) is now version 10.1, Motion to 5.1, Compressor to 4.1, and Logic to 10.0.5. FCPX has plenty of new interface features and updated Library features. Plus, there is optimizations for dual-GPUs and 4K content (titles, transitions, etc.).

Final Cut Pro X is $299.99, Motion $49.99, Compressor $49.99, and Logic X $199.99. If you currently own these apps,the updates are free and available via the Mac App Store.
