Since Apple did not have any rendering times on anything and since I do not play with huge 600 mb photoshop files I was able to put together a Final Cut Pro 4 project file and have it rendered on a G5. Below is what I got. My Dual Processor G4 1.25 gigahertz ( 1 GIG RAM ) took 8 minutes 25-30 seconds for that project The Dual Processor G5 2.0 gigahertz ( 2 GIGZ RAM ) took 5 minutes 25-30 seconds for that project That project had about 1 minute of dv footage with 2 text scrolls, and some color effects. But it might get faster with Panther and everything optimized.. but at lease we got something to go in. Its just a wait and see now.
