El Capitan stability
« on: November 15, 2016, 08:47:37 pm »

I'm always intentionally two generations behind in my OS X and wouldn't even dream of quitting the perfectly working Yosemite.

But the latest upgrade to Final Cut Pro X does not run on Yosemite, I'd have to upgrade to at least El Capitan.

Does El Capitan play well with C1? And can I upgrade to El Capitan only - I truly want to avoid Sierra at this time.

Just in case I can't get El Capitan (Apple may force me towards Sierra):

How well does Sierra work with C1 (and, as we are at it, with Photoshop CC and Bridge CC)?

I am using C1 [not-the-very-latest] 9.1.2 on El Capitan 10.11.6 (a recent point upgrade for me) on a 2009 Imac 3.06, and find it no buggier than previous versions—it hangs on startup occasionally (every tenth time?—just guessing; an app restart always fixes the problem), and it seems to quit a bit less frequently than it used to, while in the background. The Phase One bug alert dialogue is still glacial compared to Apple’s, and it thinks it’s crashed out every time after force-quitting.

I really should download the very latest rev; I need to look at the release notes to see what’s new and ‘improved’!

I would likely have to upgrade to Sierra, as El Capitan is not longer available.

Sierra is still in a rather earlier version.

But so far I haven't found any complaints in regards to C1, Photoshop, or DaVinci Resolve - which is my main software.

It is a good idea to download a stand-alone macOS installer while it’s still available! [not being a smart-arse, but Apple seems to be making versions accessible for shorter times than they used to]

I had to ask around for a stand-alone a few years back, thereby learning a lesson!

Do you have a link for that? What's the difference between having one and not having one? From what I've seen, you'd have to go through serious contortions to still get El Capitan.

I'll probably try to get there, as I read about problems of Sierra with DaVinci Resolve.

I'd recommend you go with Sierra as it has various fixes. However, you can still get El Capitan from Apple. See this Apple Kbase: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT206886
