Tip #1174: Apple Updates Compressor to v4.5
Apple updates Compressor to support Bug Sur and Apple silicon.
Last Thursday, Apple updated Compressor to version 4.5. The update was principally to support Big Sur and the upcoming switch to Apple silicon.
However, the app also got a new icon (see screen shot), along with a rounder version number – 4.5 – plus a variety of bug fixes, including:
- Export HLG high-dynamic-range projects with Dolby Vision 8.4 metadata for optimized playback on Apple devices.
- Fixes an issue where audio sync could drift when changing the frame rate of a clip.
- Fixes an issue where creating a BluRay disc from a DV-PAL source would fail.
- Includes built-in support for Avid DNxHR® and Avid DNxHD® decoding and playback.
