Apple has revealed that Final Cut Pro 7—the version of the video editing software beloved by professionals—will not work on a Mac with the new version of the OS installed. In a letter sent to users, Apple said that “older versions of Apple pro video applications—including applications in Final Cut Studio—will not launch on a computer running macOS High Sierra.”
When Apple launched Final Cut Pro X in 2011, professional video editors were dismayed to learn that the new software was aimed at consumers and lacked the professional features found in version 7. While Final Cut Pro X has received substantial updates over the years to make it more pro friendly, the final death knell for the legacy software is bound to upset many in the community.
For its part, Apple is doing its best to convince users that the switch to Final Cut Pro X and an upgrade to the latest OS will be smooth, even publishing a 22-page white paper for version 7 users who are considering switching. Since version 7 project files can’t be opened in Final Cut Pro X, some users will have a tough decision to make.
