    Hi

    I am thinking of upgrading to an intel iMac but I have final cut pro 4. Will it work on intel macs or would i have to get final cut pro 5 for it?

    Thanks, Amy

    Amy FCP 4 to FCS 5.1 UB Is Only $!99

    Amy it won't. But you can get Final Cut Studio 5.1UB that will for only $199 if you act fast (this is a link to the web page where you download the form you send in with your Install DVD). Mail Apple your Install DVD with $199 and get the upgrade while you can until March 19. You want this upgrade even for the Mac you have now. 5.1UB is the future. It's really sad there are so many owners of Final Cut Pro 4 out there that still don't know about this upgrade. We've been writing about it here a lot for the past year.

    you can

    Go to Applications folder
    Right click on Final Cut Pro & choose Show Package Contents
    Double click on Contents folder
    Open up info.plist with TextEdit
    Search for ‘AGP’ and replace it with ‘PCI’
    Save

    im sure it works i did it a while back but that may have been with 4.5 but thankfully my uni technitions where kind enough to lend me final cut pro 5.1 anyway it may save you a few bob if it works:cool:

    Amy...you should pay the extra postage to get that order in their hands ASAP and require signature on receipt to verify they got it before the 19th. There isn't much time left.

    Postmark Deadline is March 19 But Receipt Deadline is March 30

    Not quite as urgent as you think TA.

    "Orders must be postmarked by March 19, 2007, and received by March 30, 2007"

    She's in England. In USA I would send it Priority Mail with a Delivery Confirmation Receipt which is also a defacto proof of mailing as well.

    Do you know if this will work for DVD STUDIO PRO 3?
