Check out David Roth Weiss' tutorial on getting ready for FCPX, which is here on the COW. You'll find helpful techniques. It was written a month or so prior to the introduction of X.

I would strongly recommend either a second boot drive or a partition. To have a long term stable FCP setup, I wouldn't go beyond SL.

FCPX however will be developed along with Lion and ML so you will do best if you have the best OS for each application. There are also issues of using different versions of Motion and Compressor. Finally if you use an I/O card like Kona or Decklink, there are different drivers for the different versions of FCP so it will be easier to have the systems, drivers and OSs totally isolated.

Awesome, Thank you Michael,

So how would I go about it ? use Bootcamp and just load up snow leopard and FCPX
on the other patrician ?
Is there a step by step for this procedure ?

Dave suggestion to follow the comprehensive tutorial that David Ross Weiss did is the best advice. Just search the tutorials for David.

Hi, D

WIth a clean Lion install, is there an actual tested reason for keeping FCPX and FCP7 separate on partitions? He's mostly addressing OS upgrade install problems (that is an absolute given). And I guess separate installs are the safest way to go. - But is there actual conflicting elements / codecs that gets introduced by installing FCPX? It's a totally separate app, like having After Effects or iMovie on the same system drive is it not? As far as I know there's no shared application support between FCPX / FCP7 right? - Or am I missing something (quite possible :-)

There there might be issues with Red Giant Plugins (different one for each version,
There maybe others also I am still in Snow Leopard with FCS2 not 3 and would like to stay there
for a while (now that I have QT 7 back and not 10.)
