Pond5 has announced a new app for Apple’s Final Cut Pro X that’s designed to give editors the ability to save time by working with previews of Pond5 footage, music, and sound effects directly in their Final Cut timelines.
Developed in collaboration with Apple, and available for free, the new Pond5 App for Final Cut Pro X lets users search for creative content through a streamlined interface with numerous search filters, then import previews of selected media files into their timelines with a single click. Editors can then try different video and audio file choices in their projects, apply filters and transitions, and save their work as they go.
Once final files have been chosen, users can drag completed sequences onto the Pond5 App to begin the checkout process. When the purchase is completed, all low-res previews will be instantly replaced with hi-res versions, with all of the edits and effects added in the FCPX timeline remaining intact. The app also includes the ability to bulk download previews and hi-res files.
