[Shane Ross]"I'm quite surprised that you were even able to install it."
@Gerry You do realize that FCP4 was released in 2003? It's 10 year old software! Modern Apple OS software/hardware won't even support it. You would need a computer from 2005 (at the latest) in order to run it as that was the last of the PowerPC machines, before Apple switched over to Intel CPU's.
Thanks for the heads up. FCP came with an inherited G4. I had no use for it till now and re-installed it in iMac. I've started Lynda tutorials, FCP imports files and so far it seems operational. I'm doing a 4 min. Kickstarter vid with pan and trucking stills, live video, SFX and synched narration. Should I expect snags? I haven't used iMovie either but thought it couldn't handle accuracy. I can live without Livetype but, considering what I've told you, is there a trick I might try to boot Soundtrack?
