Can Avid 5.5 & Final Cut 7 run on the same system?
on Jun 28, 2011 at 1:17:16 am

I'm considering getting Avid 5.5 as my 2nd choice because I have no idea what the future of FCP is and I figure I'm going to need to relearn avid just to be safe. Does anyone know if Avid 5.5 and FCP 7 can be installed on the same boot drive running Mac OSX 10.6.8 with quicktime pro 7?

Thanks

I'm pretty sure it can but check with Adobe support to make sure.

I think Shane Ross has said that there have been codec conflicts when the two are installed on the same boot drive. Search the forum for sure, or for the ultimate protection setup a new boot drive on a firewire drive. If you're just learning Avid the FW drive may be your best bet.


BTW, you can just clone your current system drive, then test installing Avid on your main system drive and you can always clone back from the copy in case you experience any issues.

No issues. I have FCP 7, Avid MC 5.5 and Premiere CS 5.5 all on the same boot drive. No problems.

Me too. I have CS5.5, FCP 7.0.3, and MC 5.5.2 on the same machine. The thing I wouldn't do, though, is upgrade to 10.6.8 just yet. Those f'ing OS updates almost always break something. Never sure why people are so quick to pull the trigger until they know if it'll work.

If they'd make clones first it wouldn't be a big deal, but they'd rather spend an entire day reloading everything than 1-hour making a clone.

Thanks for correcting me Shane, I wasn't sure if I remembered you saying something about that or if it was a figment of my vivid imagination.

Well I sure can't seem to run CS5.5PP as far as utilizing my Matrox MX02LE to monitor. I get nothing out of PP. Works fine on FCP7. Have one of you guys gotten a Matrox02 box to display external video with PPCS5.5? How??

Do you have the newest driver? It was just release a few days ago. My Matrox MXO2 Mini works with CS5.5 now.

Yes I think so 2.2.3

I beginning to think it can't run on a MBP. What is your system?

Well I tested it on a Mac Pro, 8-core, Nahalem machine. I haven't actually tried it on my MacBook Pro yet.

Regarding this entire thread, I am definitely a MAC FCP junkee (
hoping apple will not disappoint us in the near future...)and also thinking of learning AVID . Can someone maybe give me an idea as to what version I should get (since I"m clueless when it comes to AVID)
maybe the equivalent of FCP7 +compressor+DVDstudio pro ? just to begin with...

Thanks for this!

The Avid Media Composer production bundle comes with Sorenson Squeeze (Compressor equivalent), Boris effects...a few music library DVDs...and a DVD authoring program that is WINDOWS compatible. No Mac one yet. There is no "Studio" Bundle like FCP and Premiere has...it's mainly the NLE with a couple side apps. Sorenson is VERY useful though.

Great forum, I was wondering the same since I'm planning on slowly migrating from FCP to AVID.

Has anyone tried Media Composer 6? I'm thinking of getting it soon. Any comments?
