    And in the list of supported Red cameras (for the future) I found only Raven , Scarlet-W and Weapon cameras.
    Wonder if this means Epic-w will not be supported in future MacOS upgrades. Seems strange though.
    Apple's support doc is vague and could be a bit more informative regarding what's going on.

    There is speculation that Apple's phasing out of 32bit apps also affects older 32bit codecs (the encoder/decoder).

    The warning might potentially be a generic prompt or perhaps mis-flagging media that is otherwise fine.
    I've read of a few people getting that message on projects that were formats clearly stated
    to be compatible and not legacy media.

    http://www.fcp.co/fcp-forum/4-final-...start=20#97715

    Apple might consider issuing a statement clarifying the codec situation a bit clearer (i.e why do otherwise codec compliant projects get the warning).

    ADDENDUM:
    This might be a way of getting Mac OS to list "Legacy Video Codecs".

    The only problem is this might only list legacy codecs within QT and not necessarily those installed through plug-ins and 3rd parties.

    This interview with Apple's Phil Schiller and Anand Shimpi seems to indicate Apple's direction pretty well.

    https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2018...tem-on-a-chip/

    I understand Apple wanting to control their own destiny in this fashion. It's similar to decisions RED has made in development and manufacturing their own tech.

    Apple needs to still consider that the hardware they design may not satisfy the needs all users and should still keep things open for ALL 3rd parties to participate on the platform given they are compliant to the OS architecture and not hacking their way into it.

    This is obviously a big deal for Pro users and it needs to be pushed front and center for Apple to do right by us.

    Having said this, how many people signed the petition for Apple to publicly commit to work with Nvidia on drivers for Mac OS 10.14?
    https://www.change.org/p/tim-cook-ap...r-mac-os-10-14

    Has anyone sent feedback to Apple - https://www.apple.com/feedback/macos.html or Tim Cook (tcook@apple.com) for that matter?

I’m sure those dot revs are taking advantage of things in the new OS but I still think this is a slippery slope for Apple. Of course, if you don’t need any of the new feature or bug fixes then you can just stay where you are.
    I waited a bit to go to High Sierra too and am not in a rush to go to Mojave. I must say that High Sierra works fine and I think the majority of conflicts and plug in issues have been long dealt with. I even have a 2008 Mac Pro 3,1 running High Sierra and FCP 10.4.3 and it runs quite well. Not my main system anymore but still good enough to work on.

    While I'm not in a rush to update to this latest 10.4.4 I must say the 3rd party Workflow extensions is a feature that may be bigger than
    most people realize. I can't think of an NLE that has more extensive 3rd party support than FCP X.
