Finally acquired a copy of Final Cut Pro HD. I installed it, attempted to launch it and it tells me I am missing a AGP Graphics card? :mad: Now my machine is a imac g5 2ghz. I figured it would be more than capable to run this, am I mistaken or can I change something to make this work. Thanks in advance!

This must be an earlier version of Final Cut -- the "AGP" card thing is a red herring. IIRC the solution is a small hack to a configuration file to convince Final Cut it is OK to run on a modern machine ... Google for instructions.

?? shouldn't be an issue on the HD version.?? Do you have the installation CDs and version numbers?

e: All iMac G5's have discrete video cards
