    Ok I just got my new SR 2.2 MBP and I moved FCE 3.0 over to it and to my utter dumbfoundment final cut wouldn't run, something about needing an AGP graphics card. I thought, well, this sucks but I kinda thought I would need to upgrade to FCE 3.5, but then I went to apple.com and read some of the reviews and they had the same problemos with a MBP that I did with the new version. Not cool. One of the commenters mentioned a hack that would enable it, it didn't work......
    I figured it out though


    ***to get FCE to run on an MBP do the following*******
    Right click FCE
    'show package contents"
    open 'contents'
    open 'info.plist' in textedit

    edit--->find
    find 'AGP' replace with "PCIe" (the 'e' is REALLY important, kinda makes the whole thing work)
    save

    And your good to go

    I am open to any questions

    I'm assuming this is not the universal binary version?

    It's going to run very slow!

    You are correct in the assumption that my version is the PPC version (3.0) but I heard that even some UB 3.5 people were having the same problem so....

    Oh and about the speed, I don't mind it too much, it is anywhere from slighty slower, even, or much faster than my iMac G5 1.8ghz, so to me not too bad. I'll wait till version 4.0 to go UB cause I'm a cheapa$$

    That's torture!

    Final Cut Express might come out soon, it usually comes out a few months after Final Cut Studio gets updated.
