Editing Software Versions

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

Final Cut Pro X: 10.4.3 (Computer Lab Only)

Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2018 Release (12.1.2)

Please note that the version of Final Cut Pro X listed above is the latest version available from Apple. Projects created in versions prior to 10.4 are not compatible with this new version.

The version of Premiere CC we are on (12.1.2) is the most recent version. Please note that projects made in this newest version will not be backwards compatible with older versions of Premiere (e.g. CC 2018, CC 2017, CC 2015). If you are also editing at home it is recommended that you upgrade to the exact same version that we are on: CC 2018 12.1.2 and not use an earlier version.

Clicking on the “What’s New” tab in the Creative Cloud App will tell you which version you will be upgrading to if you click the Update button.

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 no longer available in our facility

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.
