final cut 7 on mac OS 10.12 Sierra.

Hi,
I have a retina mac book pro and have been running Yosemite 10.10.5 for years because I edit using final cut 7. I am now having problems with many softwares including safari because i have not upgraded my operating system; I have been advised by apple to upgrade to resolve these problems, though I have researched that final cut 7 does not work on OS 10.12 Sierra. Don't what to do? Any advice/solution please...
Many thanks
Rossella

There isn't much you can do. FCP7 has essentially been dead for almost 7 years.

If you insist on using FCP7, use your current computer as a legacy FCP7-only machine. Get another machine for other purposes.

Add a second hard drive or partition the drive and use a dual boot system. Older OS for FCP 7 and newer OS for everything else.

What Warren said...I do this as I still find myself working on projects that originated in FCP 7. Just yesterday, in fact...

Partitioning the hard drive seems my best option, many thanks

Larry Jordan has also advised keeping "legacy" computers to run software that is perfectly lively but which the publisher has tried to kill. Are there advantages to partitioned hard drives over separate computers? Seven years is an eyeblink in human lives.

Hi Rossella, I too have stayed on Yosemite precisely for that reason. I never tried FCP 7 on Sierra, because the forums usually claimed it not run "dependably". Since I don't have your software issues, I don't need to upgrade my OS, but thanks for the post, so I'll know for future reference.
