While most of the world enjoys your videos in their final, beautiful form, you know that it takes a ton of work in programs like Final Cut Pro X to get them there. And when you’re working, you’re in the zone. There’s no time to be switching back and forth, checking on your browser, and fighting the temptation of the woeful world wide web. You need to be focused like a microscope.

We’re here to help you focus, with an all-new (totally free!) app. Vimeo for macOS brings some of our core functionality to your desktop, giving you more control over the video workflow— especially if you’re working in Final Cut Pro. Download it here.

While you could already upload to Vimeo from Final Cut Pro, the new macOS app gives Final Cut Pro users more control over file formats and video codecs. We’ve also included the ability to upload multiple files at once, a handy status bar to track progress, and instant access to share links, review page links, and embed codes. For anyone working in post-production, this is a definite time-saver.

After you install the app, you’ll be prompted to connect to Final Cut Pro (which you can always do later from your settings, too).  After restarting Final Cut, you’ll see the app in your share destinations as Vimeo (advanced).

Here are all the awesome things you 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

And you can enjoy it all without going into your internet browser. Meaning you get the features you need most, right when and where you need them.

We plan to continue updating Vimeo for macOS, so comment below and let us know what you’re loving, and what else you’d like to see.

P.S. Good news! If you work in Adobe Premiere Pro, we’ve got an extension for that.
