I'm still on 10.11.6, I might need to update here soon, so I was wondering what the last OSX version that
works with FCP7?

Thanks

hi Joe,

I'm pretty sure that High Sierra breaks FCP 7. Subsequent versions don't work with 32bit apps,which FCP7 is. (or so I've read)
so last one to work is OSX12 Sierra

but be aware that as move up from where you are now, more and more smaller things may stop working.


cheers,
nick

Yeah, I concur, El Capitan was the last for me using FCP 7. I keep it installed on the model 4,1 8-core tower
I've had for a decade, to handle old FCP client projects I don't want to transfer over to FCP 8.

FCP 8 (AKA Premiere Pro CC) works fine under High Sierra (10.13) but watch out, 32 bit Quicktime ends when you install Mojave! All 32 bit media will need to be transcoded to work in the 640bit world.

So my question is, what's the best batch processor to use?

Best, as always.
