I'm an amateur editor and have been editing for about 2 years. I absolutely love it! I started out using iMovie 3 (that's in late 2004) and iMovie 5 (Last May) and I upgraded to FCE 3.0 last summer, which has really fit my needs. Suddenly, my hard drivve became defunct, and the Genius Bar replaced it with all my files and everything but, of course, the applications themselves. As a young male, it is my duty to have a messy room, and I've fortunately found everything but the LiveType data disks. I've thought about just asking for a warranty, but I've always wanted to get Motion. Will it work with my setup? I have an iMac G5 rev. 2, 2.0 GHz, 512 MB RAM, a 160 GB internal HDD and 80 GB external HDD, and Final Cut Express HD 3.0. My main concern is its compatibility with FCE. I cannot possibly afford FCS with my budget, but I can shell out the cash for Motion. What I normally work with is documentaries. My brother is in a fairly popular band, and I just came back from the far east to tape some of his stuff. I'm also planning on buying a green screen soon. I found a sweet deal for one at the local camera store. So, is Motion 2 good for what I need?
