Q: What happens when I need to open FCP projects using legacy Continuum effects? Will the legacy versions still work?

A: Due to changes in the host API, the current version of the Final Cut Pro host does not support the legacy Continuum FCP product, which was discontinued and replaced with the new (and very fast) Continuum FCP product. If you have a timeline that used legacy Continuum filters you will find that they will only produce the expected results if you run a legacy version of the FCP host.


A: Nope! Our 3 units packs are all perpetual licenses. For the full suite of Continuum FCP, you can choose to subscribe or buy it outright with a perpetual license.

Q: What are the main differences between Continuum FCP 2024 and Continuum FCP (2020 or older versions)

A: It’s a completely new product with no cross-over effects, presets, or transitions — and it’s way faster! Continuum FCP 2024 offers blazing-fast renders speeds in FCP and delivers up to 10x faster workflows depending on your specific Apple hardware. Plus, every effect is GPU-accelerated, HDR compliant, and includes OCIO support for color management, unlike previous versions.

Q. Will my Continuum FCP 2024 license work on multiple computers?

A: All Boris FX licenses allow for one activation per workstation. If you would like to move your Continuum FCP 2024 license between multiple workstations, you can download the Boris FX Application Manager to easily deactivate your license and reactivate it on a different computer. For customers with more than 5 licenses, please contact or for information on upgrading to a floating license server.
