    Yes but not supported by Apple.


    User experiences range from Cannot even install to minor glitches.


    It's pretty much put up with whatever you have or move to FCP X that Apple does support in Lion and Mountin Lion.

    A friend of mine bought a new iMac a few months ago and against my advice to move onto Final Cut Pro X he reinstalled his old FCE 4.


    He claims it works as good as ever!


    Of course he was using a brand new machine.


    If you have merely updated an old Mac to Lion, it may well be carrying a load of baggage that will cause problems with FCE.

    here's my dilemma, originally the computer came with snow leopard " 10.6.8 " cleaned all up  replaced the defective HD, ( mac store genius bar did that ) and upgraded to lion " 10.7.5 " everything works fine ( so far ) including the FCE 4.0.1, , I was just wondering, because there are so many negative answers about it, ( including mac people) because is a third party software, they won't commit themselvs.

    Thanks for your comments anyway.

    What do you mean by third party software?


    FCE 4 is Apple software.


    I have learned to ignore much that people say and test things for myself.


    If they work OK for me, that's great.
