Hi, I updated my mac to High Sierra and I found that final cut studio 3 does not work: cry: I'm particularly interested in fcp 7 but wonder if there is a way to make it work, maybe a patch or something like that I also passed with fcpX but with liver version 7 I was relieved and I do not want to throw it away
  thank you

:blush:

It will not work with High Sierra. You would need to have a backup disk with an older OS to be able to run it. None of Apple's 32-bit applications will work any longer.

Isn't it true that no 32-bit app will run at all in High Sierra? Not just those from Apple?

I believe Apple said HS, which is a development of Sierra, would be the last IS that supported 32-bit apps.

Without getting into why you are still using an app from 2009 that was EOL'ed in 2011, how about working with the project in Premiere Pro? Doesn't Premiere import FCP7 projects without an XML export/import?

Great reason to upgrade to X.

No, it doesn't.

To the OP:

If you only use FCP (or any old 32-bit application) there is no reason to update your OS to High Sierra at all. If you really want to benefit from the latest technology, use FCP X. The transition is very easy, and you will be surprised how much it will improve your editing experience.

Yip if you upgrade to High Sierra, the disks of fInal cut pro 6/7 are coasters, useless... Apple sent emails to users it had on record saying HS would be the 1st to stop using 32bit pro apps...I suspect the new file format system [?] is one of the reasons...

I kind of wish and keep writing to Apple to ask for a "sandboxing" of pro apps, given the sound effect library in FCP6/7 is huge...To throw that away is criminal!!!

Just partition off the hard drive in 2 parts, one with HS and one using a lower grade OS..Then install FCP6/7 on the lower grade OS...

But really time to move on, leave the ox wagons and get used to driving a hybrid...

I know it's been awhile, but for anyone looking for more information like I've been, there is a program called FCS Remover, which lets you uninstall exactly what portions of which FCS apps you want to get rid of, and lets you keep the things you want. For instance, you can have the app itself, the preferences and other things you'll never use, but keep all the content libraries.

There is also an app called Send to X which will take FCP 7 and Premiere Pro projects and make them FCP X-compatible.

I'm still having a hard time deciding if I'm going to upgrade to High Sierra or not. It's been months and I can't help wondering if I'll ever need FCP 7 again.

My advice about fcp7..I would suggest a small partition on the primary drive, install the last operating system that works with FCP7, set and forget...

Upgrade and install High Sierra and start to edit using fcpx, there is no point using an outdated non linear system, but that tiny partition may one day be useful, you dont have to worry about it, you know it is there...
