Apple recently released the latest version of Final Cut Pro X 10.3, and it’s one of the biggest updates ever given to the software. In this article, we’re going to guide you through the process of getting it completely FREE. However, before we begin, let’s take a look at what this new update brings with it.

New features in Final Cut Pro X 10.3

With a redesigned interface which includes a new magnetic timeline, Final Cut Pro X 10.3 now enables media to be easily organized and delivers incredible performance. This is because it uses all of a Mac’s GPU for real-time playback. Additionally, the update now enables Final Cut Pro X to deliver more variation in 2D and 3D titles, and there’s even new video effects such as new floor transitions.

It also has integrated audio editing and is able to take advantage of the Touch Bar on the new Mac Pro. These are just a few of the new features delivered by the update; you can find out more here.

How to get Final Cut Pro X 10.3

Before we begin, we must note that many users of this method of getting Final Cut have seen this message: “Final CUT Pro X is damaged, and it can not be opened. You should eject the disk image after downloading it.” The solution to this is to go to System Preferences –> Security and Privacy –> General –> Allow Apps downloaded from and then select Anywhere.

However, if you’re using MacOS Sierra, it blocks this option by default. So to solve this problem, go to Terminal and type subo spctl –master-disable.

Now we can begin the tutorial:
