    It’s been a while since I upgraded. I’m on 10.14.6 OS and FCPX 10.4.8. I’m getting close to finishing a couple major projects, and so considering this a pretty good time if I choose to do so. What are your thoughts on Big Sur, and the latest FCPX upgrade?

    My general rule is *never* upgrade mid-project unless I have to – it’s rarely worth the risk. FCP has generally been pretty solid but I have seen plugins stop working properly. If I were you, I would wait until the projects were wrapped up to upgrade.

    Big Sur will not open old tape-based media such as Hi8 or DV.

    Oh, and dont forget to do a complete clone of your working system before starting the upgrade.

    PS – yesterday was World Backup Day. nuff said.

    thanks for the reminder.

    I have a bunch of miniDV and Hi8 to digitize soon.

    “Big Sur will not open old tape-based media such as Hi8 or DV.”

    Can you elaborate on this a bit?
