I see a lot of smug derision at people trying to tinker with their machines, but not much help in this thread.

Here's how it looks from my end:

"Can't I use FCS3 on my G5?"

"Nope, won't work. Must be intel"

"Why not?"

"Won't work."

"I don't see why it wouldn't work."

"No intel, no worky. Unsupported. No codecs. blahblah"

"Well, that's odd, it works for me."

"You've just hacked it to install. It won't actually work. Why don't you just upgrade your entire server farm, or just use FCP2"

"Because I choose to try instead of just forking over thousands of dollars, and clearly others would like to do the same."

"Whatever, this and that won't work."

"No, they do work. I just tried them."

"Well, I know (like Shane is on the dev team over at Apple) it wasn't tested."

"It works fine."

"Well, don't ask us for help."

What a bunch of snide pr1cks.

Listen, what's it to you if people want to tinker with the machines they spent so much money on, only to be, quite frankly, left obsolete for no good reason? If you don't want to help, don't post, but don't poo-poo on people trying.

If your workflow is viable, then you can pick up a steal of a deal on an older machine and still work. Isn't that what it's about? Could you get the same stuff done with FCS2? Mostly, but that's not the point of a thread titled Final Cut Pro on a PowerPC.
