Editing Software Versions

Version(s) of Video Production Software installed on all F&DM edit stations:

Final Cut Pro X: 10.3.4

Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2017.1.2 Release

Please note that the version of Final Cut Pro X listed above is the latest version available from Apple. Versions older than 10.3 are not compatible with 10.2.3 and below. Students the situation of only being able to install the older versions are encouraged to reach out to FDM Operations Staff for guidance.

The version of Premiere CC we are on (2017.1.2) is the most recent version. Please note that projects made in this version of Premiere (CC 2017.0.2) are not backwards compatible with CC 2015.4, 2015.3 or any other earlier version. If you are also editing at home it is recommended that you upgrade to the exact same version that we are on: CC 2017.1.2.

Please note that Final Cut Pro 7 was “discontinued” by Apple on June 22nd, 2011 with the release of Final Cut Pro X, and is now only available in our Transfer Room in to provide the ability to migrate FCP 7 projects to Adobe Premiere.

Students needing Adobe Premiere on their personal stations should purchase the latest version through Adobe’s Education pricing here:

Students may purchase Final Cut Pro X directly through Apple’s “App Store” application for $299 for use on their personal computers. The separate applications which traditionally were included in the “Final Cut Studio” suite, Compressor and Motion, can also be purchased through the App Store for $50 each. Students are discouraged from making this investment instead of Adobe Creative Cloud as FCP X is currently not our primary editing platform.
