Apple recently released an update for Final Cut Pro for Mac, featuring improvements for sharing videos online to popular platforms like YouTube and Facebook. Apple has released similar updates to Motion and Compressor on Mac, also iMovie and Clips on iOS.
When creating content, the ability to share that content can prove to be very important. With this update, Apple is making it easier to share to some of the most popular platforms in its first-party apps.
Apple updates Final Cut Pro with new YouTube and Facebook sharing options
The Cupertino tech giant published a support document on how to share from each of the above-mentioned apps to Youtube, Facebook, and Vimeo. The company says that when a user chooses one of these sharing options, a file will be created for uploading to the service. Users can then choose details such as resolution, compression, and captions. Apple explained, ‘Shared files will be saved to your Mac. To upload your video, follow the guidelines on the video-sharing website.’
The instructions for Final Cut Pro are as follows:
- Select your project in the Final Cut Pro browser, click the Share button, then choose YouTube & Facebook. Or choose File > Share > YouTube & Facebook.
- In the Share window, click Info to change the name of the clip, the description, and more. Click Settings to choose the resolution, compression, and caption settings.
- Click Next, choose a location to save the video file, then click Save.
- With Safari or another web browser, sign in to your YouTube, Facebook, or Vimeo account, then upload the video file. You can also get the Vimeo for macOS app from the Mac App Store to upload your video to Vimeo.
This is the second update to Final Cut Pro in the last month. Last month, Apple updated the app to drop the X from its branding and added support for Apple Silicon Macs.
The Final Cut Pro for the Mac App Store is available for $299.99 here.
