a bit confused here
i am using fc studio 5.1 with installed updates 5.1.4 - i am running leopard 10.5.8 on a mbp
right now i am in post of a 30min film - finally visuals edited
now working audio tracks
this is the first time i will take a project all the way to dvd and so will use the final cut studio soundtrack pro and. dvd pro.
until now i have only been using the final cut pro 5.1.4 part of the studio
i have been using logic express 8 to prepare music track. but need to explore how that works with fcp
my confusio is:
1- can i update fcs 5.1 using pro applications update 2010-02? it jumps all the way to fcp 7
2- do i need to install prokit update 5.1?
3. will this impact my project files at all? should i wait?
4. i don't have quicktime - do i need this? should i download "quicktime 7.7 for leopard"
thanks for help!
FCP 5.1.4 is as high as that version goes. If you want FCP 7, you need to purchase it. The update won't make 5.1.4 into FCP 7.
If you have a Mac, you should have Quicktime. It's part of the OS...it's installed with the OS. The only way NOT to have it is if you deleted it. And since it is a core component to FCP...you should have it.
