Time to learn Final Cut X! CMCM Edit Lab to phase out FCP7.

Goodbye, Final Cut 7!

Final Cut X came out in 2011. It has since been refined and is now a much more stable and faster editing platform than Final Cut 7 ever was (which also hasn't been supported or updated for years). The very latest Final Cut X will only run on the 'High Sierra' Mac OS and that effectively renders Final Cut 7 inoperable. In order to update our operating system for stability and security, will soon phase out Final Cut 7 from our editing lab.

If you have using FCP7 exclusively, it's time to finally embrace new technology. Please sign up for a Final Cut X class today!

Here are several other useful tools to help make your transition to FCPX as smooth as possible:

CMCM Updates for 2024!

The Community Media Center of Marin is open again and we have some important updates for 2024:

The Editing Lab has been optimized with new Mac computer systems with M2 Pro chips. We look forward to having our community enjoy the major upgrades at the center.

CMCM will no longer be providing SD cards for members to use in cameras and the podcast studio. These are now affordable enough that members should have their own. Below are some links to the exact SD cards we recommend for you all to purchase for both the Sony X70 Cameras & the eXpress Podcast Studio. We greatly appreciate your understanding!

64GB SD Card (Camera)

256GB SD Card (Podcast)
