Time to learn Final Cut X! CMCM Edit Lab to phase out FCP7.

Goodbye, Final Cut 7!

Final Cut X came out in 2011. It has since been refined and is now a much more stable and faster editing platform than Final Cut 7 ever was (which also hasn't been supported or updated for years). The very latest Final Cut X will only run on the 'High Sierra' Mac OS and that effectively renders Final Cut 7 inoperable. In order to update our operating system for stability and security, will soon phase out Final Cut 7 from our editing lab.

If you have using FCP7 exclusively, it's time to finally embrace new technology. Please sign up for a Final Cut X class today!

Here are several other useful tools to help make your transition to FCPX as smooth as possible:
