- Adds support for multi-pass HEVC 4:2:2 encoding. (Requires macOS Ventura – 13.x)

4:2:2 codecs provide more color information than 4:2:0, which was the standard for both H.264 and HEVC. Defaulting Compressor to “Faster” means that the compression default uses hardware acceleration.
All these fixes are good news, however, it would be even better to see features added from the long list of Final Cut requests.
