    I have a G5 w quad processors but I bought in 2006. (I paid $5,000 and got the best system I could.) I am running OS 10.4. I just got an HD camera. I use Final Cut Pro v.5 but it's not working properly with the HD video. Is there any way to import and watch HD footage without it jumping? I hate to buy a new computer if I can fix this with software updates or a new video card? Many thanks.

    Well, what codec are you using? Also, are you playing it on the same HD as your OS and applications? It could come down to a simple HD throughput issue.
