So this will give me the ability to get FCPX Projects to FCP7 and then out to OMF, XML, and EDLs ?

That will be a handy workaround.

I don't know why, but after reading about Project X27 I get an image of bank robbers jumping into their getaway car, driving to another spot where they change cars, then jumping right back into the original getaway car to make their escape.

Later, their all sitting around in jail wondering why the plan failed.

But that's an analogy for normal XML interchange surely?

In the X27 example they would change getaway cars twice, but be completely unable to get back into their original car.

Sounds like a great way to not go to jail.

Straight curiosity - I'm not using FCP7 in Lion - Steve Conner, in one of the podcasts, said on camera.. it's working in Lion-*ish*.
He had a very exaggerated facial expression.

How stable do we think FCP7 is as a conduit for FCPX going forward on Lion? Is there any technical word from Apple as to FCP7's forward compatibility?

(I know, I'm sort of playing dumb, I know of no such statement) - but isn't this an issue? An EOL application not really certified for the current operating system, that lives very uncomfortably with FCPX even in snow leopard is meant to be its snorkel to the world?

In best practise aren't we in a different partition to access FCP7 in the first place? Does this feel like firm ground?

It was mentioned in the FAQ that 7 would work in Lion, of course it didn't say how well.

When they first EOLd 7, I made up my mind that I was going to freeze my current system drive right were it is. Even when it came back on the market, I still decided to freeze. I also made a disk image.

I wouldn't use Lion. I helped a colleague setup a brand new 12core the other day. We coudn't get Snow Leopard to install on it, but a clone of his Snow Leoaprd drive worked, so we just went with that for now. If Lioning, it should be on a clone.

[Aindreas Gallagher] "In best practise aren't we in a different partition to access FCP7 in the first place?"

Absolutely.

[Aindreas Gallagher] "Does this feel like firm ground?"

Hell no. Either does Lion as a whole right now, but whatever, it's .2.

I've got the same problem. I'm about to buy, but as far as I can tell, only the most very recent snow leopard DVD install will play ball with a Lion Apple box.

gumtree london pops up some very nice snow leopard towers, and even, god forgive me, rather nice i5 27" imacs with 1 gig cards for relative buttons. I'm not making movies and well, I'm currently home running FCP and AE on a lappie 2.4 core2Duo at the mo. that doesn't pain me. you get stuff done.

I will (some day very soon said the sloth) super duper or disk image my editing setup, but God but this is all just beginning to feel really rather dicey.

FCP gone a *tad* mental, OS gone a *tad* weird.. ech.

no windows mind you. There I just cannot go.

I can't make FCPX work reliably on my Lion partition at the moment, but ironically 7 runs fine! So I' m using FCPX in 10.68.

And what DVD is that? I could only find 10.6.3, which won't play ball. There's a really really kludgy workaround that involves a lot of really crazy shit. It's not even worth mentioning unless you can understand OS level stuff. I can't.

What you can do is install SL on on a box that will accept a clean install, then clone that clean install to the new Lion Machine. Yep, it's a hack.

No question we are in the middle of a long additive dissolve.

[Aindreas Gallagher] "In best practise aren't we in a different partition to access FCP7 in the first place?""

No matter what anyone says (even Apple corrected themselves BTW), it's always better to clone and partition than never to have cloned and partitioned at all.

I hate to admit it, but I did get this right quite a while back when I published my tutorial. Partitioning hard drives in anticipation of the many issues that always come about when new apps and new OSs are thrust upon us is always the prudent thing to do.

Here's the tutorial in case you may want to refer to it: http://library.creativecow.net/weiss_roth_david/FCP-10-MAC-Lion/1

FCP 7 does work in Lion. There were problems in many third party plugins due to a bug in Lion that's fixed in 10.7.2

Apples official position is that FCP 7 is supported on Lion.

Yep, Jeremy is right. It's not always 100% for everyone. If you search you'll find that reports have been mixed. But of course, reports on Lion alone are mixed as well.
