I recently bought a macbook to do some editing on - nothing fancy like graphical effects, just the basics to get to grips with the industry software as part of my media production course at university. I have a macbook 2.0Ghz C2D, 2GB RAM and I thought this would be fine. However, a friend of mine (who has a PowerPC Mac Mini) installed his version of Final Cut Pro 4 onto my macbook and it wouldn't work. It said my graphics card wasn't suitable but it worked on his Mini perfectly. Is it a case of having to buy Express or is there a fully-featured version of Final Cut that will work on this new mac? Also, I have concerns that if I buy a new piece of software it won't work. Testing out Avid Free earlier on with professional television footage (massive files, perfect quality) they wouldn't play - just the audio and a still image of what was put in. Then a friend and I made a short mobile phone clip and tried that but had the same problem. Any idea why this is? I wasn't running any big processes at the time, could it be the very same graphics problem as in Final Cut Pro 4? I was under the impression when I bought my macbook that editing would be fine and I don't want to just resort to iMovie as the point was to buy a macbook to learn the industry standard software. So, is there any way to get Final Cut Pro to work or, if I have to buy Express, will I just have the same playback problems as in Avid Free? I know it's long-winded but I greatly appreciate the advice.
