Installing final cut 6 and 7 same machine?
on Dec 12, 2011 at 8:09:05 pm

I believe I've read this before, but I can't find it now.

Is it possible to install final cut 6 and 7 same machine?
Is it as simple as creating a different folder for FCP7 during the install process?

Thanks.

I wouldn't. Different partitions/OS drives. That's what I do.

I wholeheartedly agree with Shane.

You might want to look at my Cow tutorial about setting up partitions for X and Lion. It will apply to FCP 6 and 7 as well.

I agree with the others. I can tell you, any other way will open a door to the land of mass & confusion.
Don't go there!
Different partitions is the way to go.

Thanks guys.

David I know how to set up partitions and do separate installs, but I though it was in another post by you that I read you could have both on the same partition.

Maybe I'm confusing it with the partitioning for FCP 7 and X article that you wrote. I've got a major head cold today and the brain is a little foggy.

Thanks again everyone.
