Apple Updates Final Cut Pro to Version 10.5.2

Posted on by Larry

This morning (March 4, 2021), Apple released Final Cut Pro 10.5.2, along with updates to Motion (5.5.1) and Compressor (10.5.2). These releases are, essentially, bug fixes.


Here are the Apple Release Notes:

The folks at Digital Anarchy added the following notes to the upgrade:

Final Cut Pro 10.5.x uses a new version of the FCP plugin architecture (FXPlug4). The older plugin versions (FxPlug3) still works for now but these new builds of the plugins will be required at some point. They also add support for Apple’s Metal (replacement for OpenCL), the Apple Silicon machines and Big Sur (FxPlug4 and FxPlug3).

10.5.2 adds some bug fixes for FxPlug4, so we highly recommend you upgrade to this version if you’re using 10.5 or higher. 10.4.x will still use FxPlug3 plugins but you still want to download these releases as they add Big Sur support.

MOTION 5.5.1
