I have a reason to upgrade to FCP 7. Need to create BLURAY DVDs from Hi Def footage.




I REALLY LOVE my store bought fonts I now have in Live Type in FCP6. I don’t know how or where and it may have been in your discussions, but other people have raised the same request.


HOW DO I SAVE MY LIVETYPE CURRENT SETTINGS and not lose them when I upgrade to FCP7 ?


Can I just download FCP and MOTION and not LT ?


If you have or know of a printed WORK AROUND on this issue, that would be mostly appreciated.

Larry replies: Dick, this isn’t a problem.

When you upgrade to FCP 7 it does not remove your LiveType application, fonts, or textures from your system. So, go ahead and upgrade.

If, for any reason, you need to reinstall LiveType, you can do so on an FCP 7 system by installing LiveType from your Final Cut Studio 2 disks.

I’ve done this on several systems, all with no problems.
