Also posted on another forum, but I figured I give this one a shot too:

Hi all,

I'm new here and in fact am a noob to FCP too. Searching far and wide, I finally was able to purchase a Mac and FCP. Mainly because of the price and the TON of stuff that came with it, I ended up buying a G4 Dual 1 with Final Cut Pro 5.0.4, DVD Studio Pro 3, Pinnacle CineWave with all the bells and whistles such as Commotion Pro, Knoll Light Factory, Pro Analog option, Pro Digital option, etc. (Yes, there's an external raid system, too, so that all of the above options will work.)

Now mind you, I don't really know how to use any of this yet. But I've been bitten with the editing bug in a bad way and there's no turning back.

I'm the type of person who likes to fully research different options first and then dive in headfirst and completely. This is how I was with deciding to go with FCP.

I eventually want to get a Mac Pro and Final Cut Studio 2, but that's out of my financial realm at the moment. Like I said, price was a major factor in getting the system I did get above.

The system, while a bit obsolete, as it turns out was designed from the ground up by a very, very pro systems designer/editor. It can accept just about every type of input and output and has all the hardware to do so. It also has produced lots of very high quality projects and I purchased it from a working hollywood studio who created recent projects (as recent as six months ago) on it and when I came to pick it up, we literally unhooked it from the boss's desk.

Now, having set up my scenario above, I would like to know: are there any other Creative Cow forum members who use CineWave or Commotion?

I talked to the Creative Cow CineWave guru (Walter) and he got rid of his CineWave setup a few years back.
