Possibly the most important new feature in version 10.4.1 is ProRes RAW, which Apple describes as combining the visual and workflow benefits of RAW video with ProRes performance.

ProRes RAW files are also more compact than ProRes 4444 files; consequently, editors will like better corresponding storage servicing video projects.
Closed captioning improvements are another significant new upgrade. With the update, Final Cut Pro X users can create and import closed captioning directly within their FCPX projects. No third-party add-on closed captioning tools are required, which lowers overall video production costs. Users can use the timeline to produce and associate captions, view closed captions (including during playback), and adjust closed caption text, color, and placement.

The share window is updated, too. A whole new Roles tab displays titles, video, and audio roles in just one pane, simplifying publishing closed captions.
