    Tapping Six Seasons of Weeds in the Edit

    August 25, 2010, 9:11 am

      Final Death Comes to Final Cut 7

      August 23, 2017, 2:04 pm

Emails went out to users (thanks to Josh Granger for informing us) who currently use FCP-7 that it won't open anymore if you upgrade. While certain older support apps like Cinema Tools haven't opened for several generations of updates, Final Cut has continued to, and there are companies and even TV shows (See House of Cards) that continue to use it on a day to day basis.
