    I have the full Final Cut Studio (version 3 or 5) package. But but for now i only want to install the FCP7 and Compressor apps (limited space on my travel laptop). Would i be able to add the Motion app at a later date or would i end up having to do the entire installation (including fcp7) over again?

    Yes, you can do that. Just do a CUSTOM INSTALL in both cases.

    NOTE: If you are installing on a computer running MacOS 10.9 Mavericks or 10.10 Yosemite, the version of Compressor that comes with FCP 7 (Final Cut STudio 3)…doesn’t work. A resource it needs isn’t available in the last two os versions…or something. It just doesn’t work…SUBMIT option is greyed out.

    yes, like Shane says you can do a custom install.

    note also that when you do that you have the option of installing Motion without the templates and animations,
    which means it’s a very small install, and may be worth doing.
    (same for DVDSP and STP)
