    Please forgive me ...I searched without an answer...can FCP and AVID MC 2.7 coexist

    on the same CPU?  Avid is telling us no but that seems nuts.

    Install them both and find out.  There was a problem where FCP would act up if the Avid codecs were installed (installing Avid installs them), so maybe that'll be a problem.  Otherwise, install both and try it--if they don't run, uninstall and pick your editing poison.  Ghost your drive before hand in case you run into problems.  It'll be faster than waiting for "definitive" reply.

    I'm running them both, w/no observable deficiencies.  At least on Avid.  I can't say I've used FCP for more than 10 times or so.  I really air out the Avid 2.7, so I can say it's solid w/the FCP install.   Now that I've received the FCP w/Motion 3, I'll be using that more.  Motion 3 changes everything again. Well, that and Color.

    No wait, this is an Avid board.  Pretend I didn't type that...

    I've got both on the same cpu and I haven't noticed any difference. They both seem to work fine even if they are both running at the same time. That is if I'm doing a major export or render on the Avid I can still edit on FCP with Avid working in the background. I would suggest that you keep your media on separate drives though.
