So, who'd going to bell the cat, and try the beta version of the new OS to see if it breaks FCP7/ FCS3?

These forums are filled with people who update their OS without thinking...and rush to get the latest without thought about how their 3 year old, discontinued software will run on it...and then be shocked...SHOCKED that it doesn't work, and that Apple doesn't support it.

I give it a week after the beta is released...or at least after it is released for real. Oh...heads will ROLL...

Well I decided to be a guinea pig.

I loaded Yosemite onto a 128GB USB 3 flash drive so I could dual boot with my existing Mavericks setup on a latest generation Mac Book Pro. I installed FCP 7 only, none of the supporting apps and it runs!

This was a very, very simple test, I loaded up a Prores clip added a few splices and it kept running. But the fact that FCP7 even loads is encouraging.

Keep in mind that Yosemite is still beta. Additional changes could easily break FCP7. I certainly wouldn't have done this test on a production machine.

Now I'll try loading VisiCalc :)

This sounds encouraging, but as you say, inconclusive. We heard initial stories of people running 7 without issue in Mavericks as well, but then later, the anecdotes about weirdness here and there started creeping in.

Someone's doing something similar with Adobe software: so far, not great... at least for CS6. Creative cloud? No reports yet.

Go Visicalc!

Dave, I'm glad someone got the VisiCalc reference :)

Just an observation. I'm always mystified by the fact that so many people feel compelled to load up a new version of OS just because it's it's there and it's new and shiny. Unless it offers some new feature(s)that we just can't live without, why upgrade? If your system is working and stable, why mess with it? I use my system for a business and I can't afford to take the chance of breaking it just for the sake of some tiny feature that is perceived as a must have. If it's working, why mess with it? My 2 cents worth.

Hello Everyone,

Now that Yosemite has been released to the public has anyone been able to confirm if Final Cut Pro 7 works? Thanks.

Don't do it. FCP's 3-year-old software that is no longer supported. You want to make SURE you can use FCP? Don't upgrade the OS. Leave it alone.

Otherwise, YOU will be the one who gets the rude surprises when some obscure item in FCP no longer functions properly.

If you absolutely, positively MUST have the new OS, get another computer to go with it.

Hey Dave,

Thanks for the tip. I was hesitant to upgrade to Mavericks but it turned out that FCP 7 works perfectly. I have been using it lately and have not encountered any problems with it. I'm going to wait and see if FCP 7 is supported before I upgrade to Yosemite.

I did it, I tried it, and it worked for me. Final Cut Pro 7.0 (and later 7.0.3) in the OSX Yosemite public beta. Tried capture from Canon EOS, some light editing, export and render with Compressor and all looked honky dorey:
