I am brand new to this forum. Desperation has brought me here. I had a 2012 macbook pro running final cut 7 on mountain lion with no problems. However, the laptop was a lemon and Apple replaced the motherboard 3 times, and two weeks ago, gave me a new mac book pro with Maverick on it.
Problem is, I am in the middle of editing a video series, in final cut 7. As reported in this forum, it works "o.k." exempt I have no firewire connection for log and capture from my camera.
Here is my question... Can I download FCPX and bring in media through there, and then cut and paste those files into final cut 7 so I can finish this project and start training on FCPX, or is there any known fix to not being able to log/capture with final cut 7 and maverick?
Thanks for any help or direction yo0u can give me.

I personally wasn't aware that there in fact was one. But yes, it's perfectly fine to have both FCPs on the same machine, you just want to have 7 on there first, then install X. But no, there is no copy/pasting of media from one timeline/bin etc. to the other, if that's what you're asking. You simply just import the captured media into 7 from wherever you told X to put it, like you would with any other footage.
