    Hey,
    I have a 12" Powerbook G4 with 512 MB of RAM. I want to run Motion 2 on it. I know Apple recommends 2GB's of ram but will it run at all on my Powerbook? The 30-day demo works great and I am looking in to buying it. I don't care about speed that much.

    I also need to know does Motion do overlaying video stuff like bluescreen effects (or something close)?

    Thanks!

    It'll run fine...won't run optimally, but it will get what you need to get done at a bare minimum. Don't expect to run too many particle emmitters or particle-heavy effects though...it slows down my 15" 1.67 with 2GB RAM even.

    OMG. Thanks... DL-ing it right now :)


    One question... Is it a fully working version with a 30 trial serial? Or is it a no-save crippled version?

    Either way...


    Thank you :)

    I don't know yet actually. I still haven't gotten the serial emailed to me. Apple said within an hour...
