    Is there anyway to run Motion 2 on a macbook? I know that it's all to do with the integrated graphics card, but can it run anyway??

    From the apple web site
    This is not a dig at your self, but could people use common sence and read the Specs needed that are stated.

    Macbook will not work with Motion the Graphics card will just not cut it. This has been said befor meny times in other posts.

    Is there any chance a Mod can make a FAQ post with links to posts that answer questions like this.

    Thanks

    so it does actually work on a macbook then? obviously at a reduced speed, but i'd mainly be using it for just final cut.

    yes it will run, but you will become rather frustrated with the "speed" Motion Is built around the assumption it has a dedicated Graphics card with dedicated Ram.

    64Mb of shared ram that the GMA 950 in the macbook is very limiting It not designed for this kind of intensive work.
