    Will I be able to run After Effects 6.5 on a Mac Book Pro through Rosetta? I am working off a 800 Mhz iMac G4 with 768 MB RAM at the moment and would like to sell it to get a MBP (with some other stuff). I plan on getting 2 GB of RAM with it and hope that will make the performance at least as good as my current machine until the universal version of After Effects 7 is released. I assume AE 7 wont be universal until around the same time as CS2/ CS3?

    From what i understand it will be painful.

    This rosetta thing is one giant pain in the ass. You're going to need to max out that ram ...

    and after effects has always fealt painfully slow to me, so imagine what it will be like on an emulator

    Well I'm not sure but 800Mhz G4 with 768MB RAM > Dual 2.0Ghz 2GB RAM....I think it will be at least the same speed....Yes I know Rosetta is slow. But PS is about the same on a Mac mini as a new iMac ;)
