Workshop 1: Set Up and Double-Check Your System

If you are upgrading from an earlier version of Final Cut Pro, you must have purchased a full version of Final Cut Pro in any release. When you install the upgrade, you'll be asked to enter the serial number of any full version of FCP you have previously purchased.

I strongly suggest that you run Software Update from your System Preferences to make sure you have the very latest versions of QuickTime and Mac OS. Final Cut Pro 4 requires 10.2.5 or later and QuickTime 6.1.1 or later. If Final Cut Pro 4 has an update posted on the Apple web site, be sure to run it. Be sure to check Apple's Final Cut Pro discussion group, or http://www.creativecow.net in the Final Cut Pro forum, or http://www.macfixit.com for reports of any problems or software updates. You never know when a new bug might be introduced with an upgrade that fixes other problems.
