Vimeo Launches Its New App for macOS


The vendor of Vimeo announced to release a new, free app for Mac computers, which brings some core functionalities in iOS version to macOS, giving Mac users more control over the video workflow – especially if you’re working in Final Cut Pro.

Vimeo for macOS claims to give Final Cut Pro users “more control over file formats and video codecs”. The app will integrate with Final Cut Pro to export ProRes videos, manage uploads, share videos for team reviews or to post on the platform. Meanwhile, it introduces several handy features such as uploading multiple files at once, a handy status bar to track progress, and instant access to share links, review page links, and embed codes. Here’s the list of what you can do with Vimeo for macOS:

  • Export as ProRes and other advanced codecs from Final Cut Pro
  • Upload directly to your Vimeo account
  • Add captions in Final Cut Pro, and get to settings from the app
  • Adjust the title, description, and privacy settings for your videos
  • Play videos from the app (without going into your browser)
  • Get instant access to video links, video review pages, and embed codes

Earlier this year, Vimeo launched new features aimed at simplifying video distribution across social networks, including one tool that allows live video be streamed to Facebook, YouTube, Twitch and Periscope at the same time, and another offering simultaneously uploads to both Facebook and YouTube. Now, when you install Vimeo on their Macs, you will be prompted to connect to Final Cut Pro, and after restarting Final Cut, the Vimeo option will be available in the Share sheet in Final Cut.

The developer promises to continue working on Vimeo for macOS, and users are welcomed to raise any feedback or suggestion to help improve the product.

Final Cut Pro recently updates to version 10.4.1, introducing the new ProRes RAW format, advanced closed captioning tools, enhanced export tools and more. Anyone who are interested in Final Cut Pro ($299.99) can download it in Mac App Store.

Additionally, Vimeo provides an extension to help Adobe Premiere Pro users simply the editing workflow by uploading videos and creating review pages without leaving Premiere Pro. The free Vimeo panel requires Adobe Premiere Pro version 2015.3 or higher. And once installed, it can be found in Windows > Extensions > Vimeo.
