    No, but you could look for upgrades to Final Cut Studio (1, 2, 3) on eBay or Amazon or somewhere else or maybe find older Universal Final Cut Studio versions on eBay or Amazon.

    It might be, as Rosetta is there for running PPC applications on X86 (Intel) CPUs, but you have to trick the installer to recognize your Mac as supported. I don't know how, but MRoogle will help you find some information about this, as it comes up every once in a while.



    Btw, you can edit your posts via the [​IMG] button, or multi-quote posts via the [​IMG] button, as sequential posts are "against" the rules.

    Minor Problems

    6. Sequential posts.
    Combine your comments into one post rather than making many consecutive posts to a thread within a short period of time.
