Wait!! Don’t Update to OS X Yosemite!
By Braden Storrs
STOP!!! Don’t hit the button to download OS X Yosemite. Until the Apple Pro Apps (FCP X, Motion, Compressor, Logic Pro X) are updated with an official Yosemite compatibility update. Along with any other programs and plugins that are essential to your workflows. Yes, there are reports that things are working properly but there are a million little things that can go wrong from hardware compatibility differences, to plugins, etc. If you make money with your software then do yourself a favor and wait. If it’s just a hobby for you then be my guest and be a guinea pig for the rest of us. Hopefully we’ll get an immediate update, but it could be a while. Last year there was a two month wait for FCP X. Though to be fair they were waiting on the Mac Pro to be released. Of course there will be many who miss this notice or ignore it and will come here to complain about bugs and guess what, we will have little sympathy. If you choose to update anyways don’t go around complaining about bugs.
