FCP and a MR-HD100 with OS rollback
on Nov 15, 2011 at 3:51:34 pm

Ok so I've been on FCP for eight months using a JVC HD250 with attached MR-HD100 drive for capture. Loved it, go out shoot and then come back and dump the footage in, easy as pie.

Well Apple releases Lion and it wreaks havoc with the MR-HD100 files so they are unusable. Apple doesn't know anything about it and Focus Media who make the MR-HD100 failed to send me anything that they KNEW ABOUT. They finally release a patch but it doesn't want to work for me so now my last option is to roll back my OS to Snow Leopard. If this doesn't work then I just lost three projects worth of footage which Focus Media doesn't deem to care about.

Long story short, besides backing up all my files will I have to reinstall FCP, After Effects, Boris, etc.?

Found an easy way to roll back the OS using a partition but haven't done it yet because I'm still wondering if I am going to have to reinstall all my programs.

Too late now but you should always clone your current drive before you upgrade.

Carbon Copy Cloner is a great program.

Still doesn't answer my question as to whether or not I will have to reinstall FCP, AE, Boris, etc. after the rollback.

If I were you, I would do a clean install.

The only way to find out is to "rollback" and see if your your hard drive boots and your apps work.

I found a detailed step by step to partition the apple HD with SL on one and Lion on the other and taking everything from the Lion partition to the SL partition and then deleting the Lion partition.

The issue is caused by the iTunes upgrade to v10.5, even on Snow Leopard.

It will also occur if your alternative FCP Quicktime 7.6 upgrades to higher version (7.7).

The reality is the only reliable solution is a complete system re-install you can't fix the problem by deleting and then re-installing an older version of either app.

Re-installing FCP, Adobe Premier etc won't resolve the issue it's a system problem.

The Digital Rebellion / Pacifist fix will get the files playing again but I ended up with major problems in Compressor (no audio on conversions) and a few other funnies that I didn't bother going deeply into.

Re-install OS 10.6, upgrade the Snow Leopard OS, do not allow iTunes or Quicktime to upgrade. Then "freeze" the system upgrades until when and if there is a fix. Do not buy an iPhone or install the latest iOS5 system upgrade on your iPhone, if you control it from the same computer, as this requires iTunes 10.5 to be installed.

Apple are probably more concerned about battery / software issues with the new iPhone at the moment than a solution for professional users of their FCS software.

Recording on the DR-100 drive as m2t files and then using Clipwrap 2 to rewrap as HDV or ProRes works, but will not solve the issue that like me you may have up 5 years of archived video you can't use without booting from an older system drive. Clipwrap is an excellent app, that's very fast and will convert your media to ProRes SQ in faster than realtime.

Regret now upgrading from 10.5 a year ago, been a year of issues, after 7 years of virtually no problems at all.
