Apple released Pro Video Formats v2.0.5, an update to the video codecs supported in OS X El Capitan and macOS Sierra. The update comes out at the same time as Final Cut Pro X 10.3, which was announced during Apple’s “hello again” media event.
Apple’s patch notes for the update include a list of all codecs already supported in OS X and macOS. At the top of the patch notes, however, are three new codecs, as below.
What’s New in Pro Video Formats v2.0.5
- ProRes wrapped in MXF OP1a file container
- Support for AVC-Intra LT
- Support for playback of MXF wrapped files in QuickTime Player X on macOS Sierra
The update is a 7MB download from Apple’s support site. As of this writing, the update isn’t yet showing up in the Mac App Store for me, but it’s likely to be a similar-sized update there when it does appear.
