Final Cut 6 updates not available.

Hello, I have a disastrous problem! I was forced to do a fresh re-install of my FCP 6.01 from the box. And then, in order for my existing sequences to work, I needed to update to 6.06. (I never upgraded to 7). The auto software updates would not work so I went to Apple's site to manually download the update. It no longer exists!
I contacted tech support who has been working on the problem for a week and they too are surprised to see that the support updates are missing from their site and are looking into why.
My complete library of work (sequences) that I have created is no longer viable as they were created on version 6.06. I would upgrade to 7, but it seems Apple no longer offers that option either.

Please, if there is a solution to this problem, please advise. My entire business it shut down and the clock is ticking financially. Thank you for any help.
Best, Craig

Re: Final Cut 6 updates not available.

Although most of my work is with Adobe Production Premium CS 5.5.2 now, I still use FCP 6.06 for some legacy projects that a number of my big corporate clients want regularly updating. My worst fear is something like this ever happening to me/my business. Like you, my discs would only get me 6.06 if I did a fresh install from them.

I know it's easy to be wise after the event.... but did you not keep a back-up disk image of your OS drive??? Also, although much less useful/reliable with FCP (as I understand it from what I've read in the past), what about Time Machine back-ups???

Re: Final Cut 6 updates not available.

I did neither of those backups as I was only upgrading to snow leopard when the issue occurred. I should have.
I do have a redundant computer with 6.06 installed. Is it possible to mirror to an external drive then port it over to the crippled machine? That system disc has a fresh install currently of leopard.
The best would be to find and actual download update from 6.01 to 6.06...I suspect interim updates will also be needed as well.
I'm surprised that professional users would be thrown under the bus this way. In essence, that computer is no longer usable for any editing of FCP projects.
Thanks, Craig

Thank you Dave, I will contact you ...I have version 6.01 installed and working fine with the exception that it won't allow programs created with 6.06. I need 6.06...hoping I won't need interim updates.
Yes, you just may have made my Xmas!

Yes, thanks Noa...they have a broken link for the update...seems to have mystified their tech support as to why....reporting that they no longer support the product, but the update should be there....they have asked their tech people to look into it...unfortunately, my reputation and business may be destroyed by the time it's resolved.
Thanks, Craig

Re: Final Cut 6 updates not available.

Hi,

I saved that update and still have it. Not that I knew what surprise we shall soon get from Apple. Just so happened. So anyway, if you or anyone need it, let me know and I will send it.

Hey Daniel,

I just sent you a private message. Do you think it would be possible to send me a copy of that update?

Thanks,

Philipp

Re: Final Cut 6 updates not available.

I recently fresh installed FCS2 on Snow Leopard and managed to get all the relevant updates to get to FCP 6.0.6. Unless something has changed in the last 2 months you should be able to get the last FCS2 update in the same way I detailed in the thread below.

Note that the updates are now bundled into Pro Apps updates and you need to update those in two stages (re-boot needed after the first, if I remember correctly). Also note that Snow Leopard is the last OSX you can (easily) install FCS2 on - hence why I posted all this information.

How to Install FCS 2 on Mac Pro Running Mountain Lion

Hope this works for you.
