Mojave will be a bit of a pain for me, and a lot of others, I expect. It ends support of 32 bit apps, and I'm stuck with some that will never be updated, such as the Spyder4 calibration app. A convenient way to force upgrades on us. It's also one of the reasons I was compelled to replace my Logitech Harmony One remote. The software will be a no-go.
I wonder if there’s a way to get a list of 32 bit apps that reside on a Mac?

About This Mac -> System Report -> Software -> Applications

The Applications window has several columns of info, one is "64-Bit (Intel)" which shows as either "Yes" or "No". You can sort on this column if you like. I am still running High Sierra but I assume Mojave works in the same way.

Yes Mojave does run 32 bit apps. No new problems with the 64 bit but long abandoned Aperture which I use constantly. Basically the upgrade to Mojave has been problem free: only problem - my 5GHz WiFi connection was refusing to work immediately after initial boot, rebooting didn't help, switched to 2.4 GHz, then switched back to 5GHz ("forgetting" the 2.4 GHz) - everything has been fine since.

But, sooner or later 32 bit apps will die: the one I depend on is MPEG Streamclip: basically I use it to edit MPEG 2/AC3 TiVo recordings (music clips from talk shows & SNL). I emailed the guy who wrote it (http://www.squared5.com/svideo/contact.html - Stefano Cinque) - if he ever intends to to update to 64bits or lend it to a developer with spare time (me) to do it for him - no answer. I have googled - can't find a true replacement... The only other solution - I would need to have cTiVo convert files from MPEG 2 to .mp4 - but apart from waste of time/CPU usage it kills 5.1 sound...

First Mojave bug:
someone got the bright idea to turn off .dvdmedia file support from the DVD Player app. Unless they acknowledge it as a bug and fix it in 10.14.1 or 2 I’ll have to turn every single .dvdmedia file into a Folder and then change their links in DVDPedia. A painful waste of time. Yes, VLC can play the .dvdmedia files, but the very first one I wanted to watch (Serge Gainsbourg video collection) choked on VLC - DVD Player is more reliable…

Could you do what you want with Handbrake and MKVToolnix, or even iMovie?

I figure macOS will drop 32-bit support within the next year since Apple has gone all 64-bit with iOS. I could be wrong though...
