I had downloaded and used Final Cut Pro 7 (studio 3) on my mac, but it died. Can I download it to my new computer without buying a new copy? I'm not sure of the number of installations for academic copies. How would I do this?

AH...good. 

 

There is no limit on the times you can install it from the DVDs. There's just a limit as to being able to run it on multiple machines AT THE SAME TIME. If your old computer dies, or you sell it (please reformat the drive so they don't get FCP for free), then you can install on a new computer fine.  And you are allowed to install on (1) desktop and (1) laptop at the same time as well...but only use it on one machine at any given time. Meaning you can use it on the desktop at work, and then when away from the office, on your laptop.

 

Long story short...you can install it fine without any issues.

    FCP 7 was never made available by Apple as a download. It only came as a set of 7 DVDs as part of Final Cut Studio 3. 

     

    If you downloaded it, it was done illegally, sorry to say.

    Sorry for the miscommunication. When I said downloaded, I meant from the DVDs not from a download from the internet. Bad explanation on my part.
