I'm working on a team using FCPX. Recently, my computer updated FCPX to 10.1.1 (I'm assuming bc I have a newer computer & OS). The others on the team have FCPX, the earlier version.
Because we have projects edited on both version of FCP and we need to be able to transfer projects from one computer to another, I need to be using the earlier version of FCPX. However, I also need to be able to edit the 10-15 projects we've started in 10.1.1. So, I'm looking to somehow run the 2 different versions of FCPX on a single computer.
How could I best accomplish this - thru different users? partitioning the drive? Any suggestions??
The only way I know is to have a separate partition with Mountain Lion installed on it. You can't install 10.0.9 on a Mavericks computer as far as I know. The Apple store doesn't let you download it. This has also been an issue for us. We're now almost converted over to 10.1.1 but the new structure has made this transition incredibly time-consuming and painful. I think we're on almost a month of working on it.
My vote is different partitions. I don't know if 10.0.9 and 10.1.1 can peaceably co-exist. You can open the old with the new FCPX, covert to new and also retain the old events/projects Going from new to old- maybe use XML.
