Apple Logic Pro X and Final Cut Pro X go free to use for 90 days
The COVID-19 crisis has seen a lot of tech companies offer what they can to help including offering some of their products for free, at least for limited periods. Apple has now joined that list, which includes Adobe among others, and is now offering its two leading professional creative apps to new users a free trial for three months (90 days). Final Cut Pro X has been available on a one-month trial gets extended to three months while Logic Pro X gets a trial period for the first time as well, also now at three months.
Final Cut Pro X is Apple’s professional video editing suite and is used by everyone from amateur film makers, advertisers and fully-fledged film studios. It offers everything from editing, audio, motion graphics and delivery with support for advanced color grading, HDR and ProRes RAW files. It also supports 360-degree video editing and VR headset playback. On Mac Pro, it can support up to 23 simultaneous streams of 4K ProRes RAW video footage which is mindboggling to say the least.
Logix Pro X is Apple’s professional music recording suite and is built using a very similar interface to its hugely popular GarageBand app. As you would expect, however, the Logic Pro has a lot of more built into it for song writing creation, recording, mixing and mastering. As you would expect from Apple, it also works seamlessly with Final Cut Pro X allowing you to create original music compositions and, or, sound design effects as well.
Given most of us will generally have more time on our hands over the coming weeks, who knows what you might be able to create in three months before having to part with, a still very reasonable, US$299 for Final Cut Pro X or US$199 for Logic Pro X.
