I have a 2011 quad core i5 21.5 inch iMac running os x lion. Final Cut studio 3 works fine on it, I've had only a few little hang ups with log and transfer but no complete crashes. Nothing to downgrade for. It all works fine. I have it running side by side with FCPX with 7toX transfer app from the Mac app store.

Any news regarding Mountain Lion? (10.8)

I've heard that at least CinemaTools won't work (10.8)…true?

I've upgraded my laptop to Mountain Lion, and did some quick noodling around with FCS 3. All programs opened and ran just fine, and seemed to perform the functions I most commonly use without any problems. (This included CinemaTools.) While I haven't played extensively enough to say that there are absolutely no problems of any kind, it's a promising start.

Well, I've upgraded a few days ago and Cinema Tools didn't launch under 10.8.

If I find a way to fix that, I'll post it!

Does anyone know if I can run Final Cut Studio 2 on Mountain Lion and if so what probs come up with FCP. I'm also concerned about Motion.
As this point, I'm thinking of a straight install, if I was to get a new MacBook Pro and issues that I might be facing.

The problem is not Final Cut Studio, but a QuickTIme issue. You can address this by downloading QT 7.6 for Lion, with software update.

Some crashes when rendering Motion 3 content in Final Cut Pro 6.06. Report said FCP crashes because of Prographics Module. I don't know what is it.

Major, incessant crashes in Final Cut Pro for me on a relatively recent Mac Pro after upgrading to Lion. Reinstalled FCP and the problem got worse.

I see that the last comment on here was from July 31st. Anyone having any issues with FCP7 on a Lion machine? I see SgtPiddles comment, but then things seem to be okay with Nicola.

Curious if one takes a new Lion machine, and installs the most current version of FCP7 on it, if there will be issues. ?

Any issues if you are running unlicensed version of this software?

You shouldn't be running an unlicensed version of this software. Pay for it like everyone else.

I'm now experiencing multiple crashes in FCP 7, slipping audio and weirdness in the graphics performance after upgrading, leading me to believe that Lion has messed with the graphics board settings, among others, in my iMac. Export to Quicktime was not a problem. Licensed Final Cut Studio on iMac 24, Build 11C74.

Additionally, one of my external drives isn't being read in Finder post-Lion upgrade.

Lion strikes me as a deeply flawed product.
