Oct 20 2017: Chromatic was already the most comprehensive grading solution for FCP X. Now we've added even more tools: Improved Hotkeys, Gallery browser for your stack presets, compare buffers to quickly do shot to shot comparisons, exporting grades as CUBE files PLUS support for the Tangent Ripple control surface. Lastly we've also improved performance on the 2013 Mac Pro systems. This is a free update if you already own Chromatic, just click the download button and run the installer again and you will be updated to the new Chromatic version.
If you don't own Chromatic yet, you can download and get a 15 day free trial, or take a look at our comprehensive range of tutorials, or our overview video. The new features in this update are show cased below.
