I have an early 2011 MacBook Pro running high Sierra (the latest operating system supported) and I needed to get final cut pro. you can't natively download it from the App Store without an error. so I bought and downloaded it on my friends 2016 15 MacBook Pro running Catalina and put it on a usb drive to copy to my computer (I did the same thing with iMovie so I was confident that it would work) once I plugged it into my computer and copied it to my applications folded and tried to open it but when I did it said it required Mac OS 10.14.6 (my Mac can only support 10.13.6) I tried editing the info.plist file and it didn't work. I really need this software on my computer please help.
VMWare Fusion 11.5 supports your hardware, your os and can virtualize the newer macOS. There is a free download so you can make sure it runs before you spend for a license.
You do not need the pro version.
