Parallels on Sierra to install older OS for FCP 7 on MBP?

I have upgraded to Sierra on my MBP. But I still want to use FCP 7. Would Parallels work to install Snow Leopard and then open FCP 7 in that OS? Thanks, Jane

Isn't Parallels for installing WINDOWS on a partition of the hard drive? Why not just partition your main hard drive, and install the older OS on that? NO need for Parallels.

[Jane Lurie] "Would Parallels work to install Snow Leopard and then open FCP 7 in that OS? "
According to this Apple Communities article it should work: How to Install FC7 in Mavericks...No longer support PowerPC error

If you want to try using a virtual machine, you don't need to buy Parallels. You can use the free VirtualBox which I use every day on my MacBook Pro. It supports OS X from Snow Leopard forward.

Of course following Shane's advice and creating a second partition for Snow Leopard is what I did to maintain compatibility with a old copy of FCP Studio that I still use for DVD Studio Pro (which has quirks on newer OS versions).
