Apple Upgrades Final Cut Pro X to Version 10.0.1

FCP X Export

Apple has upgraded Final Cut Pro X to version 10.0.1 adding XML import and export, media stems export and Xsan support for multi-user workflows.  You can also create a custom starting timecode in order to accommodate bars and tone.  Additionally, transitions can now be added to connected clips without the need to create a secondary storyline.

Apple has also made FCP X available as a free 30-day trial, which is a first for FCP.  On its info page, Apple outlined coming updates for 2012, which will include multi-cam editing and broadcast quality video monitoring.

It looks like Apple has listened closely to the harsh criticism of missing features in providing these updates, as well as providing indication of what’s coming next.  It’s probably not enough to stop the bleeding entirely, but it’s a decent bandage for the time being with more healing in the near future.
