After accidentally leaking the existence of Final Cut Pro 10.3 on its trial website, Apple has officially unveiled the updated release at today’s Hello, Again MacBook Pro keynote. The update, which will eventually be available for download on the Mac App Store, adds support for the Touch Bar in the just-announced 13″ and 15″ MacBook Pro.
Apple’s Susan Prescott demonstrated editing a project timeline via the Touch Bar with timeline displays, and contextual controls. Users will be able to move about the timeline, trim clips, adjust waveform volume, and much more.
While in full screen view, users will see a representation of all elements in the project timeline on the Touch Bar. Users can then scrub through a project timeline by sliding on the MacBook Pro’s Touch Bar, while the project is in full screen view.
Release details weren’t yet discussed, but we’ll likely find that out after Apple announces the availability of new MacBooks. The updates will likely appear in the 10.3 Final Cut Pro X update that Apple leaked last week.
