I’m trying to get my old Final Cut Pro 6.0.6 to work on one of my old computers. It works on OSX10.5 but not later. For those of you who use Macs, I’m on 10.13 on both my 2010 IMac and my 2019 IMac. It won’t let me install 10.5 anywhere. I think FCP will improve everything. IMovie isn’t that good. I’m slowly getting better at it, but I have to have something than IMovie. It’s a pain in the butt, and it does such a lousy job. I might just have to shell out that $300 for the new version of FCP.

Remember, If you want me so sign books, email me by Wednesday.

    You could run Parallels and then run your old OS in a VM along with your old software.

      I installed OS 11.1, and I downloaded final Cut Pro for the system. This is on my 2019 IMac. But I don’t want to lose OSX 10.13 because a few of my important programs won’t run on the new system. What I’ve done is acquire SuperDuper, which is a backup program that creates a bootable disc. So I’ll put my new OS on that and restore my original OS. My Imac 2010 is a great machine, but you know how software developers ignore upgrades. Adobe wants me to buy a new Photoshop. But PS CS 5.1 has all I need. My old laptop on OSX 5.8 is much too slow to run FCP 6.0.6 This is the easiest solution for me.

    With Mac’s frequent updates to its OS, Quickbooks would always demand an update, even though the older version worked fine. Adobe went to the subscription model raising my cost of software to $600/year. Now I use Affinity. One-time cost and cheap. Excellent stuff. But they don’t do movie software. Tough when you’re retired and don’t “write off” the cost of software, but you want to keep up. BTW, I’ve been playing with Garageband and it’s pretty cool.
