    "Note: The integrated graphics processor in the MacBook does not permit float processing in Motion and will result in degraded performance and other issues in Motion and other Final Cut Studio applications."

    I think most of these issues with a video card fall on Motion which needs a much newer card to run it, case in point the list apple gives for video cards, but the ati 9000 works fine with final cut 5 but it will not run motion, i highly doubt that a 4 year old video card permits float processing. but am surprised that you can install motion 2.1 on a macbook and it runs decent at least.

    The whole thing about the GMA950 is that it supports Core Video or DirectX 9 on the Windows side. Its designed to be able to *do* pretty much anything although its not going to be that fast about it.
