    Not all, just the sequence on the 2nd monitor. I don't have screen tearing at home with 10.7.5. At work on OS10.8, I just edit in full screen using dual monitor. Works fine.

    As far as I know the same banding is happening in leopard.   Think I heard that earlier in this thread.   The cropping plugin isn't really a big deal in ppro..  it's just dragging it down.  It works pretty much the same but one bummer is it doesn't have feathering option..  I use masks for that.    I find there's definately a few things I miss that final cut had.. but also a few things that PPro does better..  so it's kinda a wash for me.  As I continue to use it I care less and less about the FCP7 had.. I guess you have to get therapy like me and come to the place you can finally let go.   ha     There is hope on the other side!

    Has anyone down graded to snow leopard? has it worked? I am about to revert back to 10.6 if I can get a concensus that this soluation might work.

    As I posted last September (on page 1 of this thread):

    "If you can, back down to Snow Leopard...  I have an 8X 3.2GHz Mac Pro 3,1 and I'm getting flawless playback on three monitors with a Radeon 5770.


    It is unlikely that Apple will respond at all, and a virtual certainty that they will not spend resources to better support 4+ year old system.  Trench in at a defensible position and continue the fight..."


    The question is: Can you revert back?

    I do:

    Macpro 5.1 12 core 3.3

    PC card PNY GTX680

    Nvidia driver from Nvidia website

    Mountain Lion 10.8.5


    Eveything's working fine


    PS: just try for fun: Mavericks + FCP 7: issue with sound playback!!!

    For what it's worth:


    The iMac, the Mac mini, and the MacBook Pro Retina do not seem to have this display issue.  At least, not on any of the systems that I've configured since this thread first appeared on the discussion forums (six iMacs, two Mac minis. three MacBook Pro Retinas).


    Of course, these machines are not right for every workflow and I doubt that anyone who's been posting here is ready to retire their tower just yet; however, if the tearing is making you crazy (and indeed, it should), an iMac or Mac mini might make a good solution while still cutting with FCP7 and the most recent OS.  Your installer discs need to be turned into disc images wtih Disc Utility, you have to download the Pro Applicaitons update manually and QuickTime Player 7 needs to be copied from another machine, but it's doable.

    Just installed Mavericks on Macbook Pro mid 2009 15" 2.53 GHz, tearing is still visible. Bummer!.
