Apple has updated Final Cut Pro.

The 5.1.2 update adds support for Motion's FxPlug plug-ins and more capture formats, according to Macworld sister publication Digit.

Thanks to the update it is now possible to use Motion plug-ins with Final Cut Pro.

Final Cut Pro 5.1.2 also offers enhanced support for Sony's XDCAM, Panasonic's P2 and HDV.

The update adds support for 18Mbps and 35Mbps video as well as XDCAM IMX 30. Previously Final Cut Pro only supported the 25Mbps CBR version of XDCAM.

The P2 import tool has been expanded and now allows more information about clips - and now subclips - to be accessed.

Support for 24P and 25P versions of HDV have been added.
