Here’s the complete list of new features and fixes, as released by Apple:

  • Create and edit custom column views with the new column editor.
  • Search for media in the browser using expanded criteria including clip names, markers, and notes.
  • Sort clips in the browser according to type, including proxy, optimized, and missing media.
  • Fixes an issue where adjusting audio keyframes on one side of a blade edit shifts keyframes unexpectedly on the other side.
  • Restores support for copying clips from the Finder and pasting into the timeline.
  • Improves stability when copying events in the browser to a library stored on an external hard drive.
  • Fixes an issue in which the timeline index was not displaying active angle information for multicam clips.
  • Fixes an issue where Canon Cinema RAW Light and RED RAW media could not be imported if a camera card was mounted when launching Final Cut Pro.
  • Improves reliability when importing an FCPXML file with missing media.
  • Fixes an issue with the Color Mask in which dragging to select a range with the eyedropper did not display the selection circle.
  • Improves reliability when using the Select Next Clip command.
  • Improves reliability when app switching to Final Cut Pro with an external hard drive connected.
  • Improves reliability when quitting Final Cut Pro during a background render.
