Hello, all. I currently have Final Cut Studio 1 (with Final Cut Pro 5, DVD Studio Pro 4, Motion 2, LiveType 2, Soundtrack Pro, and Compressor 2). I have an old PowerMac G4 from 2003, which Motion doesn't work on (and DVD Studio Pro doesn't run so great on, either - I haven't worked with Soundtrack Pro, LiveType, or Compressor too much). I'm thinking about buying a new MacBook Pro, and I'm wondering if all of FCS 1 (and especially Motion) would work on either the 13" or 15" models.
If I got a 13", here would be the specs:
2.53GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
8GB 1066MHz DDR3 SDRAM - 2x4GB
250GB Serial ATA Drive @ 5400 rpm
SuperDrive 8x (DVD±R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW)
NVIDIA GeForce 9400M graphics
If I got a 15", here would be the specs:
3.06GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
8GB 1066MHz DDR3 SDRAM - 2x4GB
500GB Serial ATA Drive @ 7200 rpm
SuperDrive 8x (DVD±R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW)
NVIDIA GeForce 9400M + 9600M GT with 512MB
Anyone have any experience with running an older version of FCS - or even FCS 1 - on a setup like the ones I described above?
Thanks, everyone,
Kevin
