“iMovie and Final Cut Pro X are based on the same code. They are updated out of sync. Final Cut Pro X was last updated in January 2014, iMovie in April 2014,” Alex Gollner writes for Alex4D. “As new features were added to iMovie, there’s a good chance the common code was updated as well.”

Gollner writes, “I took a look inside iMovie 10.0.3 to see if there are some non-iMovie elements we might see in a future version of Final Cut.”

“The copy of Motion built into iMovie 10.0.3 is very similar to the version in Final Cut Pro X 10.1.1,” Gollner writes. “There are two interesting possibilities for Motion though – an improvement for those who create text animations and also a link from Final Cut to the Mac App Store to buy Motion 5.”
