Tip #112: How to Update Apple’s Pro Video Codecs

These codecs benefit all Mac-based editors.

Topic $TipTopic

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

When Apple updated Final Cut Pro X, Motion and Compressor a week or so ago, they also updated 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
