Hi there, folks

Has anybody here had any experience with using Screen Spanning Doctor <http://www.rutemoeller.com/mp/ibook/ibook_e.html> on a 14" iBook G4 (1.33 GhZ) with Final Cut Pro to attain larger resolutions on external monitors?

I understand it splits your available video memory in half to disable video mirroring..does that have much of an adverse effect on FCP?

Buying a PowerBook/MacBook Pro would likely be the best solution, but unfortunately it's just not financially in the cards at the moment.

Thanks,
-Kyle

I personally wouldn't do it, due to the fact that there is a distinct possibility that you'll damage your computer...

It may effect fcp if it splits your video ram, esp. if you do RT and HD stuff, in fact if I recall you have to have 32mb or vram for FCP to run...
