Upgrading to Lion
February 16, 2012 10:51AM
Mac Intel 10.6.8

I am a little behind the curve but wanting to upgrade to Mac Lion, however, I am concerned that it may cause problems with my FCP 7.0.3. Didn't see any mention of this on any of the forums.

Thanks for your input.

People on other forums (Creative Cow) report many issues. If you can help it...don't upgrade.

What issues are they reporting? I haven't hard any personally on two installs I work on.

hmmm. I had decided to stay with Snow Leopard, for the reasons mentioned by Shane. But considering to update my 2008 Macbook Pro, I'd like to read more of positives like Jude's.
I'd hate to get a lion laptop and then find that my EOTL FCP 7 won't work. (Will never use FPC X!)

Well if you want Lion you'd better get in quick before the new 'even-dumber' Mountain Lion comes out. But yeah, Ive got two installs running Lion and FPC 7 with no issues. These are not broadcast setups though, so firewire/file based workflows only. Don't know what problems people are reporting.
