My MacPro is too slow and I need more memory. I know I've heard that its possible. But I want to connect my macbook, so I can use its ram additionally to the ram already inside my MacPro, giving me more memory and faster computer.

how hard?

thanks

How much memory is on the Mac Pro? The maximum FCP Legacy (i.e. NOT FCPX or iMovie Pro) can use is 4 gigs.

Now, there are OTHER applications you can put on a Mac Pro that will indeed speed up with more memory. But if you have 6-8 gigs, you'll gain no more FCP speed. Just don't be runnin' a whole bunch of applications: stick to FCP only.

Qmaster can access processors on networked computers to help with file rendering. If you are IT savy and have the computers networked via ethernet then read up on setting Qmaster which will help with Compressor. Wireless or bluetooth are not fast enough to use for this sort of task

As Dave says it won't do anything for FCP
