How would i be able to install and run Final Cut Studio 3 on MacOS 10.12 Sierra & MacOS 10.13 High Sierra and MacOS 10.14 Mojave going forward even though this software is no longer supported by Apple? It has been since been replaced by Final Cut Pro X, Motion 5, Compressor in July 2011.
What is the procedures i have to follow so i can run this Final Cut Studio version 3 (System Preferences etc)?
(Final Cut Pro 7 – "real-time editing for DV, SD and HD”) (Motion 4 - "real-time motion graphics design”) (Soundtrack Pro 3 - "advanced audio editing and sound design”) (DVD Studio Pro 4 - encoding, authoring and burning.) (Color 1.5 - a new color grading application adapted from Silicon Color's FinalTouch.) (Compressor 3.5 - a video encoding tool for outputting projects in different formats.) (Cinema Tools 4.5 - tools specific to film processing.) (Qmaster 3 - a distributed processing tool.)
I intend to do my projects using Mac Pro (Late 2013) With the following configuration:
Model number A1481
Model identifier MacPro6,1
Processor 3 GHz 8-Core Intel Xeon E5
Memory 64 GB 1866 MHz DDR3 ECC
Graphics AMD FirePro D700 6144 MB
Connectivity - AirPort Extreme 802.11a/b/g/n/ac (up to 1.3 Gbit/s), 2× Gigabit Ethernet, Bluetooth 4.0
Peripherals - 4 x USB 3.0, Built-in mono speaker, 6 x Thunderbolt 2, Audio output/optical digital audio output, Headphone mini-jack
Video out - HDMI 1.4 and Thunderbolt 2
I want to use Ultrastudio 3D for capture and playback feature film quality SDI, HDMI and analog video via Thunderbolt, and use a Lacie Little Big Disk 1TB SSD as a scratch disk, and Apple Thunderbolt Display (2560 x 1440) as a monitor, and Edirol MA-15D Digital Stereo Micro Monitor as well as Fostex PMO.5 - Sub MKII for sound audio.
The best chance would be to set up a good installation of an older OS that your computer can boot on and that FCP studio can fully run on ,ether on a partition or on an external drive, then once that is smooth running do your installation on that drive .
You will have to reboot every time you need FCP studio.
I appreciate your advice in regards to RetroActive. I did manage to make FCP7 work, but for some reason all about 200 codecs that I had installed, are gone now. What I mostly need is mxf and ProRes - any chance you could let me know how to get all of those back? When I startup FCP7 now, it just would let me choose any of these old DVCam and other tape formats. I really tried everything for days, even wanted to go back MacOS 10.11. MANY THANKS in advance!
