Updating pirated final cut pro

Send To X translates important metadata from your Final Cut Pro 7 Project.Note: App can be downloaded, but requires serial number to use; no trial available.Microsoft’s end game is, as it always has been, to reduce piracy rates.

The thing is, Myerson didn’t comment about what impact — if any — those free upgrades would have on the licensing status of a machine at the time.

Now, he and Microsoft have provided clarification: non-genuine Windows 7 and Windows 8 and 8.1 installs will indeed be allowed to upgrade for free, but they won’t magically go from non-genuine to genuine.

Final Cut X is available via digital download, exclusively for Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard customers and perhaps those folks lucky enough to be testing successor Lion.

The price reduction is no means the first and unlikely the last.

Following a talk by Microsoft’s Terry Myerson in China, reports began popping up that Microsoft was handing out free upgrades to anyone running Windows 7, 8, or 8.1 — regardless of whether or not their copy was genuine.

Myerson said the company figured this was a good chance to “re-engage” pirates.

Recently, users of pirated copies of Windows collectively celebrated news that they’d be able to upgrade to Windows 10 for free.

Turns out those celebrations may have been a little premature.

Send To X (was 7to X for Final Cut Pro) brings your Final Cut Pro 7 projects forward to Final Cut Pro X so you can use Apple's powerful new professional editing tools to update or finish your older projects.

The lightweight application is simple to use, with drag-and-drop support and progress information.

The costly process of migrating studio hardware and software is a major burden, especially on studios that have made recent upgrades to support Final Cut Pro.
