If you, like me, go to the Mac App Store when you get an update alert, you are missing some key media updates.

Whenever Apple updates Final Cut Pro X, Motion or Compressor, they generally also update the Pro Video codecs. However, these do NOT update through the Mac App Store.

These are “system-level” codecs. This means that these codecs are valuable to all editors: Avid, Premiere and Final Cut. Any Mac-based editor can benefit.

You can update to them using System Preferences > Software Update – or – this website: https://support.apple.com/kb/DL2020?locale=en_US
