Apple has updated Final Cut Pro 4.

The update is available through software update, but only to users who have the previously-released Pro Application Support installed.

Apple released its Pro Application Support update in August, warning that installation of this is required to receive future updates for Final Cut Pro, Cinema Tools, Compressor, LiveType, Soundtrack, and DVD Studio Pro. Users who don’t have Pro Application Support installed will not see updates to these applications in Software Update.

On the Final Cut update, Apple’s says: "The Final Cut Pro 4.0.2 update is strongly recommended for all users working with DV and DVCPRO50 devices. This update resolves an issue in which certain Final Cut Pro configurations would generate repeated frames during Edit to Tape operations."

Updates for Cinema Tools and Compressor are also available. Apple’s release notes follow:

Cinema Tools 2.0.1: "This update includes improvements to provide better handling of Batch Reverse Telecine operations and better support for the 16mm-20 film format and ink numbers. In addition, change lists will now properly display clip names and match-backs can be performed even if the clip and sequence frame rates are different. Cinema Tools 2.0.1 is strongly recommended for all Final Cut Pro 4 users."

Compressor 1.0.1: "This update adds international support and includes improvements to one-pass VBR accuracy for MPEG-2 encoding. In addition, Compressor 1.0.1 is strongly recommended for customers using both Shake and Final Cut Pro 4 on the same system."

Updates for Live Type and Soundtrack are also available.
