fcs 3 installation time?
on Dec 3, 2009 at 6:24:35 pm

I'm curious to know what kind of time it takes to install fcs 3 to a macbook pro with these stats..
2.53GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
4GB 1066MHz DDR3 SDRAM - 2x2GB
250GB Serial ATA Drive @ 5400 rpm

thanks in advance

Install times don't change that much since it's reading from a DVD and most laptops and towers have the same read speed for DVDs.

About 4 plus hours, most of the time.

Good Luck,

If you have some space on an external hard drive, you can make disc images of all the install discs, and the install time cuts down to like 40 minutes.

However, it does take a good chunk of time to make the disc images. Might not be worth the effort if you're only doing this on one machine.

[Kevin Monahan] "BTW, it's not called FCS 3"

Umm sure it is Kevin. FCS 3 would be Referring to Final Cut Studio 3
You may be thinking of FCP aka Final Cut Pro.

Both acronyms are correct.

There are no "technical solutions" to your "artistic problems".
Don't let technology get in the way of your creativity!
