    Hi, I'm new to video editing and software so excuse my ignorance. I have a Macbook 4,1 4G RAM and has the Intel GMA x3100 graphics.

    I've seen the system requirements for this software and its states "(integrated Intel graphics processors not supported)". The software installed fine but what limitations will I have? What will not be supported? Am I better off to go with Final Cut Express?

    Will it run smoother and faster on Express then Pro 7? Thanks for your input.

    FCP, Compressor, DVDSP, Soundtrack will run okay, as they are not GPU dependent.
    Color and Motion will run abysmal when doing intense "stuff", as they need a dedicated GPU.

    Thanks..I may go with Express if its going to better suited for my Macbook specs, plus it maybe abit easier to learn on with less features..

    That is what Final Cut Express 5 will be called... (Heck FCE4/FCP6 are relatively close already, so FCE5 really will be iFinalCutPro....)
