[AJS Studios] “Can I upgrade and load FC 6 and still keep FC 5 on the same system?”
Only by creating a dual boot system, or by cloning your system drive to a removable drive and upgrading either the original or the clone to FCS 2.
I cloned my system drive to a firewire drive, put that away for safe keeping, and upgraded the internal system drive to FCS 2. Later, a client still using FCP 5.1.4 brought in a color correcting job thet needed to stay at ver 5, so I simply booted to the firewire clone and went to work on their job.
[AJS Studios] “Is it true you can’t open a FC 5 project in FC 6?”
That is not true. You can always open a project from an earlier version. However, once you save it as a ver 6 project you can’t go back and open it in an ealier version.
“No job is worth doing more than once…”
