Upgrading from OS 10.6.8 to 10.8 Snow Leopard with FCP Studio3 7.03 any Problems?

I am using FCP Studio 7.03 running on OS 10.6.8 and my OS system is not up to date to run other program like PLURAL EYES 3. Are there any problems upgrading to the newest Snow Leopard OS? If it isn't broke, why fix it? But now it seems I have to run some other programs. Thanks for any advice.

I've read many about many people running FCP7 on OSX 10.8.X, but I've also read some failed stories. As you know, 10.6.8 is the last officially supported OS for FCP7. Anything beyond that and you're taking a risk. So it just depends on how much you need the newer OS vs. what if FCP stops working. Before you upgrade, clone your drive so you have a working backup so you can get back to a working OS if things go awry (Carbon Copy Cloner or SuperDuper work well).

Ryan:

Thanks for the info about 10.6.8 being the LAST official operating system for FCP 7. I did not know that. The only reason I need to upgrade to to use Plural Eyes 3 for doing double system syching of audio, and it requires OS 10.7 .. or higher

FCP7 is end of life (EOL). The last supported OS from Apple to run FCP7 is 10.6.8. Anything past that and you are on your own. So if you get it up and running on 10.8.3 and Apple release 10.8.4 there's no promise that the patch will work with FCP7....so upgrade at your own risk (hence the backup of your drive solution).

You may contact Red Giant and see if you can get a copy of PluralEyes 2 which does run on 10.6.X I believe. Then you wouldn't have to upgrade. Or if you have an extra machine, you could run PluralEyes 3 on that and leave your other computer frozen at 10.6.8 that runs FCP.

I'm running FCP 7.0.3 with OS 10.8.3 on the most recent 12 core Mac Pro and have had zero issues (so far).

I have FCP7 running on a MBP with OS 10.7.5 - which is Lion. Totally OK no issues at all and Pluraleyes 3.1.1 will run happily too as it needs 10.7.5 or 10.8.x (Mountain Lion) to work. However Lion should see you working happily.

best wishes

Runs better on 10.8.3 on top of e line iMac than it ever did on snow leopard. I've heard of no issues related to 7 on lion or mountain lion.

I also run it on Lion on an original MacPro 1,1.
