OS X Mavericks
« on: October 22, 2013, 08:09:18 PM »
Has anybody upgraded yet?

Very interested to hear if legacy FCP (7) and CS5 suite will run.

Or should I wait until OS X Garth Brooks or OS X Dixie Chicks?

I've been using Appleseed versions of Mavericks for a couple of months (in a sandbox, I still haven't updated my production environments but will get adound to that in a few days).  Can't help with FCP (7) and CS5, but CS6 has been running just fine, as has DPP, DxO Optics Pro, etc.

Not sure about the musician reference - the new OS X is named for a surfing spot on the north side of Half Moon Bay, on the California coast northwest of Cupertino.  If they stick with the theme as long as they did for the big cats, we might see OS X Wild Hook, OS X Westport, and OS X Mackerricher...

Just upgraded my 2013 15" Macbook Pro without a hitch. Haven't had a chance to explore all the new features but everything seems to work, including Lightroom 5 and Abobe CC. Looking forward to seeing if there's noticeable performance increases and battery life.

Installed it an hour ago .. don't know if FCP 7 works or not but I tried the following on my MBP & iMac:
1. Lightroom 5.2 - works perfectly
2. CS6 (on MBP) & CS5 (on iMac) - work perfectly
3. FCP X - works perfectly
I haven't tried anything else as I mostly care about the above 3 programs.
Generally, on my Macs, Mavericks seems to be much snappier than Mountain Lion.

FCP = Final Cut Pro ... its a video editing software by Apple ... the older versions, like 7 (which Paul is referring to) were quite popular among apple users. Many FCP users say that the newer version FCP X isn't as good as the earlier ones ... but I'm happy with FCP X as it is my first ever so I don't know any better.
Good luck on your upgrade to Mavericks.

Yes, they work perfectly ... including any plug-ins you may have in them.

As long as you've checked which Mac/OS versions can be upgraded and followed the simple instructions, nothing should go wrong.

I installed Mavericks on my Mac Mini with 16GB of RAM.  LR4 seems to be running faster.  Image previews seem to be coming up faster.  Photoshop CC seems to be running faster too.

Overall, I'm very happy with the upgrade.  It took about 90 minutes for the whole process.  Something I wish they warned me about    ;)

How long?


25 minutes here. Probably due to using an SSD though.




Some cameras… With Canon written on them. Oh, and some lenses… Also with Canon written on them. Oh, and a shiny camera with Fuji written on it too...

Feel free to have a wander round my flickr

I'd be concerned about printer drivers, and Canon / Nikon drivers and software.  Popular software should be fine.  It does seem like there are always some glitches from a new OS, and some hardware that isn't supported.
