I still get docos cut on FCP7 for post. I still have my 2009 Mac Pro, Snow Leopard with Legend sitting in the corner in case I need to open a 7 project up. Thankfully I rarely need to but the software is very much alive in the world despite EOL.

All that said, I can't blame Apple for developing an OS that dumps 32 bit software and I am glad Quicktime is all but dead. Apple has always cared less about backwards compatibility and so none of us should be surprised. However the notion that old projects have no value is part and parcel of a general attitude about archiving. Having worked on many programs over the years that source old films and TV footage, I can see that the last twenty years will provide a challenge when people are wanting to make films in the future that look for archive from this era.
