You don't believe Hrududu?

Yes, that is from what I know of the last FCS that could run on a PowerPC is FCS2, FCS 3 is intel only.

Or you can browse/search MR and you will find this. It might interest you.

Final Cut Studio 3 will work on a G5. Its installed on my Quad G5 and runs great (Final Cut Pro anyways). Its actually all Universal applications, but the official installer doesn't let you install on a PPC by default. I've never actually tried in on a G4 since I don't own one with a GPU that would support the software. I know my 128MB 9600 Pro in my dual 2.0 G5 wasn't enough to let it startup. Final Cut Studio 2 is actually given G4 support right from Apple.

I have FCS 3 installed on my quad also. I'll bet with a 6800 or 7800 you could make it run.
