Final Cut Pro 10.4 announced and demoed with VR, HDR workflow support, enhanced color tools, and more

Today was the first day of the third-annual Final Cut Pro X Creative Summit in Cupertino, CA. The event is geared towards professional video editors using Final Cut Pro X, with talks, demonstrations, along with a visit to the Apple campus and a talk by the product team behind the NLE.

The first day of the event started off with quite a bang, as Apple took the wraps off of the next big edition of Final Cut Pro X, version 10.4. Although there is no designated date for release, the update will be pushed this year and includes enhanced color tools, along with support for VR and HDR workflows.

Those in attendance got a first hand look at some of the new features in Final Cut Pro X, and images from the event are being posted to Twitter.

Here are some of the enhancements and features that you can expect from the new version of Final Cut Pro:

  • Support for VR workflows
  • HDR workflow support
  • Enhanced/redesigned color tools
  • Color wheels
  • White balance picker
  • Built-in LUT support
  • Direct import of iOS iMovie timelines
