Background: I'm a college student enrolled in a digital video and media class in which we use Final Cut Pro 5.0.2. I'm disabled and cant spend countless hours in the mac labs doing homework, which is why I purchased a G5 2.0Ghz DP with two 250 gig hd's, 3.5gb ram, and a 256mb ATI Radion vid card. My original idea was to purchase Final Cut Express, which is allot cheaper than Pro, for home use and use Final Cut Pro HD when at school. I asked my instructor today if FC Express will allow me to open and edit FC Pro 5 file(s) and visa versa. He said he didnt know, which is why I am here posting. Question: Can I open and edit the same file(s) in between Final Cut Pro 5.0.2 and Final Cut Express? Thanks in advance.
