I am installing new SSD for my MAC Pro Question on Best OS for final Cut Suite 7.03
on May 4, 2013 at 5:48:21 pm

I have been running final cut on Leopard and am now going to put in a new OS HD - an SSD. I own but never used Snow Leopard was afraid to take a chance with Final Cut. Now that I am going to do a clean install what OS is the best. Leopard - Snow Leopard - or even Lion.

I have an older MAC pro 2 x 2.66 Ghz Dual Core Xeon 13GB Ram.

Thank You
Don

Hi Don (posted this in FCP forum too)

I have FCP 7.03 running on an SSD on my MAC PRO which is older than your model. I run it on Lion without any issue. I also run Lion on a new i7 Macbook Pro
with FCP 7.03 also on an SSD. It takes about 10 secs to boot from cold.
Many here have successfully used Mountain Lion - there are quite a few posts on that. A few have reported issues on ML but often turns out they did not do a clean install.

Certainly Lion will give you no issues I am happy to recommend that. (Being 64bit some apps are able to use more ram and run more quickly however sadly that does not apply to FCP 7 as its 32 bit)

best wishes
Neil

Sir Neil - I had posted here before and got no reply so tried the other one so I could get started sooner rather than later.
Thanks Again
