  • Loving how I can now edit native H.265 files from the Samsung NX1 in FCPX 10.4! No more transcoding!

  • FCPX 10.4 just added two great features that previously required plugins: custom LUT support and manual white balance! What's more: it now supports editing H.265/HEVC (Iphone, NX1, Phantom 4)

  • Wait a minute, Zhiyun! I haven't even finished my Crane v1 review, and you've already released 2 newer versions!
