    Steve, I feel your pain. My job is a video editor and a lot of my time is taken up fixing computer problems on the editing systems. OS Sierra broke FCP 7.0 (which I assume you are using). The last stable version of Mac OS that FCP7 will run on is El Capitan, even though apple stopped supporting it back with Mavericks. FCP7 was released in 2009, ancient for software. You can try to downgrade back to El Capitan, but you will be stuck there. Other options are to go to FCPX which is a quite a change in editing style, but cost $299 and is a very solid program. Better editing option that is similar to FCP7 is Adobe Premiere Pro. Downside it is subscription based ($19.99 per month for just Premiere Pro, $49.99 for all Adobe apps, Photoshop, After Effects, etc.) but you don’t have the hassles of it getting out of date, you update when you want. A free program is Davinci Resolve, but has a much larger learning curve, since it is a color correcting program first, but it is becoming a great editing tool with each new release.
