Remember reading how someone managed to fool the system into making it work - I ask because Maverick, for the time being messes with Premiere Pro CC and some of it's plug ins and would like to keep using both if possible

Are you opposed to making a dual boot partition? That's what I've had to do in the past.

probably will wait till Premiere's got it's issues with Maverick worked out.....too much work to do that to an already formatted internal drive

Do most people have a dual partitioned drive for this?

My primary machine is a laptop...and I could dedicate space for a second partition to do testing, but I'm unsure of how big it should be. How much do you have to allocate? For an OS and a few install programs...I'd think you couldn't get away with anything smaller than 30-50GB. I'd hate to eat into my internal drive too much for a "testing ground"

This goes back to when you could get a 64GB SSD for the amazing price of $300. It's remarkable what you can make due with when you have SSD speeds.

That should be plenty for OS X and a handful of CC apps. (And FCP X too.)

Disk Utility can partition the empty space on a boot drive.

What problems are you having specifically?

No problems just reading about others headaches with Premiere Pro and other adobe software crashing and freezing with Maverick and would rather avoid that till adobe finds and fixes issues. Read that most problems are with third party plugins.

You can always create a new partition and install mountain Lion on it until the plugs are updated.

What plugins specifically? I haven't had much issue with CC but I haven't run many plug ins yet.

A colleague is having consistent issues with Element 3D and he's not on mavericks.

not sure - read in the Premier forums about the issues and would rather not have the headache till it's solved
