The current version of Final Cut Pro X is version 10.2.3.
Final Cut Pro X features a trackless magnetic timeline that allows clips to automatically slide into position.
I didn’t care about any of the cute little enhancements (and spare me the dedicated Siri button on the latest Mac Book Pro).
Other colleagues assured me that 10.11.6 (the last version of El Capitan) was safe so I went to look for the download. And after 3 calls to Apple and escalation to the next level of tech support, I found out that once Apple releases an OS update (in this case Sierra 10.12), earlier versions are no longer available.
While the suite is free with the purchase of a new Mac, users on older machines who have never purchased any version of i Work in the past must pay the full price for each app.Since the apps use the same identifier whether activated or not, the App Store has no way to determine if the trial has been activated.Update: Aperture users are reporting that the trial version of that app also allows a full upgrade for free.I was hoping to offer our readers a quick review, one coming from someone who did not have access to beta software and Apple’s PR scripts for a review before the first user could even finish the download. FCP X 10.3 requires Apple’s El Capitan 10.11.4 or greater OS.I kept both of my working Macs, a 4-year old Mac Book Pro and a Mac Pro 2013 at OS X 10.10.5 because everything worked.
