Retina MBPs and FCP7
on Jun 12, 2012 at 7:46:03 am

Assuming the new MBPs can be bought in stores (and how much Cow users will covet them) - has anyone bought one and installed FCP7 on one?

I'm interested to hear if FCP7 looks 'worse' on these due to the pixel doubling - or much the same. I know that might sound odd - but non-retina apps on the iPad look worse than they did on the old one, probably due to the larger 'old' pixels softening the edges, whereas retina displays show the stepping more clearly.

I want a more portable machine - but as I'll probably be using FCP7 for at least another year, I don't want to compromise a main work use.

NB: This assumes these new machines are in stores in the US. Doesn't look like they'll reach us for a couple of weeks over in the UK.

They aren't in the stores here either. Only the new regular MBPs are. The Retina MBPs can only be ordered, at this time. And are a 2-3 week wait. I ordered mine this morning...so it'll be a while before I get it and load FCP 7 and Avid and Adobe CS6 on it.

OK - thanks Shane. Curious to see how good or bad legacy apps look on one of these. I don't think we'll see a retina enabled FCP7! Of course, wait too long and you might be stuck with a machine running Mountain Lion (and not be able to run FCP7 at all for all we know)...

Hmmm. Now I'm wondering. Ships in 2-3 weeks. Mountain Lion out by then? Will I be stuck with Mountain Lion? Not sure I can wait either might get a normal MBP.

I guess the release is that close - so it could happen. I'm trying to remember if they said the new retina settings and apps (like FCPX) that were shown were running on Lion or ML. Do we have any clear indication that FCP7 DEFINITELY won't run under ML? It seems pretty stable on Lion (although I still use SL on my Mac Pros).

I know a developer who says FCP 7 is more stable on Mountain Lion than Lion.

OK - before I feed further hysteria about this (Apple has abandoned FCP7 users! Oh wait - it did), according to this page:

http://www.apple.com/macbook-pro/specs/

All Macbook Pros - including Retina ones - will ship with Lion, with a free ML upgrade when it ships 'in the summer'. You have to figure there are already new RMBPs (see what I did there?) in the supply chain with Lion installed.

If not - I shall be returning it with a copy of the above web page!
