    Thanks to cormiertyshawn895 on GitHub, Final Cut Pro 7 now works in Mojave and High Sierra using the application Retroactive:

    I’ve been using FCP 7 on Mojave for awhile now and I haven’t had any problems. The great thing about it is that now you can switch back and forth between using FCP 7 and FCP X 10.4.8 without having to reboot your Mac to a different partition with a different macOS every time. You can only run one Final Cut Pro version at the same time though.

    None of the other Final Cut Studio applications (Soundtrack Pro, Motion 4, DVD Studio Pro, Color, etc.) are compatible with Mojave and High Sierra using Retroactive yet…

    I just tried to use Retroactive. Have FCP7 and Mojave OS on computer. Each time I try and open FCP it starts to load then just crashes. Even when I unlock FCP with Retroactive, it still crashes as it loads. Any advice? Thanks, E

    I’ve located Mojave OS in the App Store. After I download it, will it ask me where I want to assign it and will I be able to install it on my external drive? I do NOT want to install it on my main HD which is running Sonoma 14.3.1. After that, I will install Retroactive. FCP 7 is already on that drive in the Application folder.
