All,

A thread especially for comments on what will and what won't work with Mountain Lion.
Hopefully we will build up a good list for reference.

It can be apps, plugins or maybe even new bugs that have appeared. Keep it FCPX related though!

There's a long general apps compatibility list at roaringapps.com/apps:table

As I like to stay at least one OS back from the official OS, maybe it's time for me to upgrade to Lion...

I wonder if we could use Dictation to get transcript while playing footage...

Huh. Since FCPX will actually continue to play even if it's not the active window, that might actually work...

I'm looking to jump over, but I'm hoping I can get compatibility green lights on FCP7 and FCPX co-existing, and whether CS6 works fine.

Blackmagic Design have just announced that their products are Mountain Lion ready...


Manchester, UK - 25 July 2012 - Blackmagic Design today released a series of new software updates for its products that adds full support for Apple’s new Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion operating system. These software updates include support for Apple’s new Gatekeeper anti malware security protection for all products, including DaVinci Resolve 9, Desktop Video products including DeckLink, Intensity, UltraStudio, H.264 Pro Recorder and Media Express, ATEM Switchers, UltraScope, Mini, Heavy Duty and Battery Converters, Videohub Routers, SmartView Monitors, HyperDeck Studio and Shuttle Disk Recorders, HDLink and Video Recorder.

Gatekeeper is a new security feature which protects your computer from downloading and installing malicious software. Blackmagic Design is one of the first companies to support this new security standard from the first day Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion is available to customers. As an Apple Identified developer, when Gatekeeper is set to the default option, our customers will continue to be able to download software, easily maintaining full security protection.

“Being an Apple Identified Developer has enabled Blackmagic Design to take full advantage of the many exciting new features in Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, such as Gatekeeper, right from the very first day of its release,” said Grant Petty, CEO, Blackmagic Design. ”Our customers can be assured that they will continue to be able to easily download our software and enjoy performance improvements when they upgrade to Mac OS X 10.8 and Blackmagic Design products.”

These new software updates support all of Blackmagic Design’s products.

So farI could not find any issues with FCPX, FCP7 and CS6 for normal use.

That's from your personal use?

With Blackmagic having announced updates for their stuff, broadcast monitoring should be sorted.

I'll probably wait a few days and see what shakes out.

Quicktime Player X has gotten a bit of an upgrade. You can now export "same as source" which is great, as before you could only export to h.264

The dictation doesn't yet seem to be able to work with anything besides the mic input, so that's a bit wonky for trying to do the transcribe thing.

Overall, "seems" better for everyday use over 10.7.4 and while I don't have much road time in FCPX, operation of it in 10.8 seemed better there than in 10.7.4

You'll want to change the sandbox thing right away - by default, unless the application is specifically signed by the dev, you'll get an error when trying to install. You can change this setting so you can install what you darn well please.

Looks like Apple removed Lion from AppStore.
Interesting, given that lot of Macs won't be able to run ML!

Oh yeah, be sure to go through ALL of the System Preferences after the upgrade! There are bunches of new cool ones, but some revert to defaults you may not want (like putting drives to sleep).

I just launched FCP 7 and all the FCS 3 apps ok. No clue about stability. Someone who actually still uses them can bang on that a bit. It seems that the upgrade makes your legacy pref files un-accessable. It asks me to set scratch disk an all like I had trashed them.

QT 7 Pro is fine.

I was told by Apple that the folks running the LAFCPUG event had badly worded the promo, and should never have said, cause they were never told, that "new features" would be shown. They both are very sorry for that misunderstanding.

But a warning about AirPlay, it does NOT work on any Mac Pros, and only on mid-2011 Macs and later. There's some fine print on Apple's OS X site with the info.

Ben,

Michael Horton of LAFCPUG always uses the exact text Apple gives him.

That's the rules when Apple is on your agenda.

There was a major FCP event planned for last year in London, and Apple insisted on very specific wording.

In the case of the June 27th event, the promo text was
Get an update from Apple on everything that has been going on with Final Cut Pro X:

- Significant new feature releases

- In action case studies of real life deployments

- Extensive third-party integration

- Demo of the latest features

Most people ignored the 'has been going on' and didn't realise that applied to all four points...

Hopefully after the disappointment that followed Apple will be more careful in how they word their promo text.

Ben,

Glad Apple communicated that with you. Per your advice back in June, I dropped them an email, but heard nothing back. I just want my "paste attributes" and dual viewers...

The "has been going on" I can see that, just after Larry Jordan's teaser the month prior around NAB, we just had baited breath.

For Mt Lion, seems very few "bugs" or mis-compatabilites with Mountain Lion so far. I'm gonna wait a week or so and see what comes up.

Magic Bullet Looks 2 working fine!
Cal digit raid working fine. Same with Alex's plug ins-
Overall, Mountain Lion feels a bit snappier than 10.7

BenB,
Airplay or Airdrop?
Airplay should work either wifi or ethernet, on any ML mac.
Airdrop requires a wireless card with "adhoc" capabilities. Think late macs.
You can change out wifi card or enable "AirDrop" on any network via terminal.

I really shouldn't comment without checking it out. Fine print indeed.
AirPlay and AirDrop have specific hardware requirements. AirDrop needs ad hoc wifi card and AirPlay needs certain GPUs. Here's an article I found about AirPlay... www.cultofmac.com/178460/the-real-reason...untain-lion-feature/
