Some high-end professional Mac users are frustrated, and they have been for years.
The current Mac Pro received a lukewarm reception when it began shipping in 2013, and it has been preserved in amber ever since. The MacBook Pro went with few substantial updates for a long period of time after 2012. And when Apple overhauled its video editing software and released Final Cut Pro X in 2011, many editors were turned off by its compromises.
But things are definitely looking up: 2016 brought a strong refresh of the MacBook Pro lineup, and Final Cut Pro X has gradually been updated to address and exceed most professionals’ expectations, including a significant release this past December that improved the color tools and added full support for HEVC and 360 video.
