Does FCP 5.1 work on a G4?

Does FCP 5.1 Suite work on a G4 with OS X 10.3.9?
i have a G4 that im going to put as a secondary computer, and i would like to put FCP 5.1 with DVDSP 4,

There's two things you should be searching for regarding this matter:
The first is the technical specifications of Final Cut Pro 5.1 found here:
http://www.apple.com/finalcutstudio/specs.html?finalcutpro
The second (and more importantly) is the Software License Agreement found here:
http://images.apple.com/legal/sla/finalcutstudio51.pdf
As you can see by the license agreement you can only instal FCP 5.1 on one desktop computer and one laptop. Given this fact I hope the G4 you want to install the software on is a laptop or else even though you might be able to install the software on it technically, unfortunately you won't be able to legally. Unless, of course, you uninstall it first from your G5.

  • Does FCP 7 still works under Mountain Lion?

    Hi,
    It's very important, before I update my MackBook Pro to know if Final Cut 7 still works under this new Operating System, since I'm in the middle of a Project that's in that FCP version.
    Thanks

  • FCP 7 not working with Mountain Lion!!

    FCP 7 is not working!!
    Once I install FCP in Mountain Lion (10.8) My FCP 7 won't let me open or create new projects shot with a Sony Z5 using Sony HVR-MRC1 to ingest media.
    Prior to this I never had any problems with Snow Leopard.
    When I try to ingest media FCP freezes and received the message that the application is not responding. For older works I am receiving this message:
    Appreciate your help!!
    Thanks,
    Rolando

    That error is well known and documented. Even if you are on The latest FCP 7.0.3 version, it can still appear.
    Moving to FCP X won't help either. FCP 7 projects are not readable in X without third party conversion software.
    FCP 7 should work fine in Mountain Lion (Mac OS X 10.8) I have it running in Mac OS X 10.10.2.
    Use this free tool to trash FCP Preferences: http://www.digitalrebellion.com/prefman/ Doing so will return FCP to standard settings.
    This tool is not free, but it has a trial period: http://www.digitalrebellion.com/promaintenance/ It includes the ability to repair corrupt project files.

  • Does FCP perform better than adobe premiere elements on a MacBook Pro?

    does FCP perform better than adobe premiere elements on a MacBook Pro?
    Background:
    * just trying to decide what to go for re video editing app with more features than iMovie
    * last time I'd tried Adobe Premiere Elements on my MacBook (but it was before I had an SSD) the performance was not good - it was sluggish to the point I really didn't want to use it
    * so this question is just about whether in general FCP X performs better on a Mac (you'd think it would no, as it's made/optimized for a Mac)
    My MacBook:
    Processor  2.66 GHz Intel Core i7
    Memory  4 GB 1067 MHz DDR3

    Elements is essentially an amateur app and Premiere a professional one similar to the discontinued Final Cut Pro 7.
    FCP X is a radical new approach to editing which like Marmite, you either love or hate.
    It is probably between the 2 in capabitlity but much closer to Premiere.
    Some might say it was better than Premiere, whilst other long standing broadcast editors would disagree.
    It all depends on your standpoint and I am trying to give an unbiased appraisal.
    Some of the techniques it uses are way ahead of all other apps and this is what worries people who have an established way of working, though as I mentioned in another post, there are a few omissions which have upset those editors.
    Some might say (echoes of Jeremy Clarkson) that FCP X is the most advanced editing app on the planet albeit with a few teething troubles.

  • Does final cut pro work on Macbook air.

    Does final cut pro work on Macbook air.
    I know it works fine on my Macbook Pro, but considering getting an Air for travelling, and like to import and do some basic editing while away.
    Used to have a Macbook, and FCP wouldn't load on that.
    Understand the Air's limitations on disk size, but only wanting it as a travelling editor.
    Thanks

    "Traveling editor" could imply dedicated offlining. Shane, do you think that could work with a low rez ProRes codec?
    I don't think anyone has tried to use an AirBook for FCP. Anyone bother to search?

  • Does fcp support 1080 25p capture at all?

    does fcp support 1080 25p capture at all?  not some workaround.

    Try making a custom setting. One thing that annoys me about Decklink is that they have a SHORT list of Presets. When I had the Extreme 3D installed, I had ProRes LT and ProRes HQ...no ProRes 422, no ProRes Proxy.  BMD's suggestion was to duplicate a preset and customize it to fit my needs.  They wanted a short list, because they felt people would be daunted by the HUGE list.  AJA gives the FULL list...they know we aren't daunted.
    Duplicate a preset and modify it to suit your needs...see if it works.

  • Which HDV does FCP support?

    I'm interested in shooting in HDV and cut it on FCP. But there seems to be 2 different types of HDV from Sony, and JVC. I'm quite confused:
    1) Which one can be cut on FCP.
    2) Can it be output to any deck such as Digibetacam?
    3) Can it be input or output to a deck by component, S-video or composit? Will it lose quality?
    4) does FCP support the new Panasinic P2 camera?
    5) Fianlly, is there any different between the Sony & JVC HDV's, both in cameras and in Decks (if there's any)?
    I'm leaning towards the JVC HDV. But if FCP does not support it, I'll have a problem.
    Thanks for anyone with any insight.

    1) FCP mainly supports the Sony format, but also supports the JVC format, although ONLY the 720p30 setting, not 24p. You can also use HDVxDV to convert the footage to "I" frames, which I hear is a decent way to cut HDV.
    2) Yes, but only if you have a capture card. Outputting to digibeta will always require a capture card. And you will have to render your HDV footage in an SD sequence...as Digibeta is an SD format.
    3) Yes, it can. This is probably the better way to import HDV footage, IMHO. With the use of an HD capture card, you can import HDV in a different HD format which is easier to work with. Lose quality, yes, some quality will be lost, but nothing you'd notice.
    4) It supports the DVCPRO HD format, but as of yet there isn't a card reader for the P2 cards designed for the Mac yet. That will be remedied soon. But hey, the camera isn't even OUT yet, so patience man!
    5) Yes, there is a difference. They record different flavors of HDV. Sony and Canon record using a long GOP (group of pictures) and JVC uses a short GOP.
    If you lean towards the JVC, only shoot 720p30 if you intend on editing with FCP, or get an HD capture card and plenty of high speed storage if you want to capture it in a different HD format.

  • How does FCP handle 23.98 DV Files?

    Hi All,
    Has anyone Edited using the DV-NTSC 24P (23.98fps) Easy Setup?
    1) How does FCP handle this video connected to a DV Converter Box like the Canopus ADVC-110?
    2) Does it actually play at 23.98fps on a monitor connected to the DV Converter Box?
    3) Does it get converted to 29.97fps somewhere in the process before it gets displayed?
    4) is it displayed at 29.97fps or is it really being displayed at 23.98fps?
    these are things that I am not sure of.
    sorry if I posted this message a couple of times. I didn't know that hitting the "Tab" Button posts the message, I thought it would just function like the Tab in a normal Text editor and indent a line. But here it doesn't.
    thanks

    Hi,
    Thanks for the feed back. I guess I should fill in the caps a little.
    *DESCRIPTION OF ISSUE:*
    One of our main Clients Disney, is migrating to a Tapeless Workflow based on ProRes HQ 422 @ 23.98fps. From here on out, they will only send us ProRes HQ 422 1920x1080 files @ 23.98fps and they want us to Edit every project we work on for them @ 23.98fps. At the moment, it doesn't sound like they care if we Edit our projects in ProRes HD or some SD format, but the important thing to them is that we edit @ 23.98fps.
    PROBLEM:
    Our facility doesn't have the infrastructure to support 25 machines accessing ProRes HQ 422 files. Our facility was built to support DV NTSC @ 29.97fps and we have been working this way fairly well, for a number of years.
    SOLUTION:
    I am trying to find a way to continue to us our current equipment and satisfy Disney's request to work on all their projects at 23.98fps, starting from 1920x1080 ProRes HQ 422 files @ 23.98fps. So, it was my hope to be able to take the 23.98fps ProRes files and export them to 23.98fps DV NTSC. This way we wouldn't have to reconfigure our entire Facility (which would cost a couple hundred Thousand dollars).
    My approach was to:
    1) Use Media Manager to render a new DV NTSC file at 23.98fps, which it does pretty well for the most part. It keeps the Timecode consistent between the two files (very important), but doesn't allow you to Letterbox the 16x9 video in the 4x3 frame, it just stretches it to fill the entire 4x3 frame (not so good).
    2) Then import the newly created DV NTSC 23.98fps file into a FCP Project based on the DV NTSC 24(p) 23.98fps EASY SETUP. Which works well. No problems there.
    3) Then Play the file in FCP out through a Firewire based Canopus ADVC-110 DV Converter connected to a SD Sony Monitor. This seemed to worked fine also.
    The fact that it plays is great!!!! But, that brings up the question, is it really playing a 23.98fps?
    My understanding of Standard Definition and specifically DV NTSC, is that it can only be displayed at 29.97fps, it doesn't support 23.98fps natively. So the fact that it played when I tested it got me thinking that I may be missing something here and DV NTSC and other SD equipment (like the Sony SD Monitor) can playback/support 23.98fps SD video. But that goes against everything I know up to this point!!!
    Have I been wrong all this time?
    1) Can SD Video and DV NTSC Video be displayed at 23.98fps?
    2) Or is it getting converted to 29.97fps somewhere in the process before it is getting displayed?
    3) If it is getting converted back to 29.97fps, then where is it getting converted, FCP or in the DV Converter Box?
    I am sorry I went a little long on this email, but it is a problem that will have great influence on they way we work for a couple of years to come!!
    Thanks for your input!!

  • Why does everyone at my work loose their internet connection when I update Adobe Cloud Products?

    Why does everyone at my work loose their internet connection when I update Adobe Cloud Products? We are on a 20mb broadband connection and there is around 20 people using computers at my work but when I start my Adobe Cloud Product update or when I try and download my Adobe Cloud Product everyone at my work looses their internet connection and so do I. But the update keeps downloading and installing.

    I am sorry FooWingLi but the difficulties you are describing sounds more like a local network configuration issue.  I would recommend working with your I.T. department to investigate this matter.

    Is it possible to have your whole family on one apple id or is it better to have each person have there own? If each has their own does each id have to buy their own music and apps? How does find my iphone work with one apple id or two? also I am going to be going off to college soon should I make an itunes id for my self and how will I get all the music from the old id?

    Is it possible to have your whole family on one apple id or is it better to have each person have there own?
    Yes, it is possible. 1 apple ID can be associated with up to 10 devices.
    If each has their own does each id have to buy their own music and apps?
    Yes, all purchases are non-transferable.
    How does find my iphone work with one apple id or two?
    Every device associated with one apple ID through Find my iPhone is tied to that Apple ID; Find my iPhone will work in the same way with up to ten devices associated with one apple ID. You cannot enable Find my iPhone for one device across two apple IDs
    I am going to be going off to college soon should I make an itunes id for my self and how will I get all the music from the old id?
    If you have authorized a computer with the old apple ID, you can transfer old media purchased through the old to other devices via iTunes. This doesn't mean the media purchases through the old apple ID it transferred to the new account. If you plan to make future purchases and don't wish to share them with others, make your own apple ID.

    This process does not appear to work for me.  I'm running 10.8.3.  I created a new user for a guest staying with me.  They have gone now and I am attempting to either change the password or delete the user.  It won't allow me to choose the user I created.  I am logged in as myself and it states that I am an "Admin".  The user I'm attempting to change is listed as a "standard" user and there is a white checkmark inside an orange circular background on the user pic in the list of users. 
    Can someone help me?  I am having a hard time believing that OSx will allow me to create users and allow them use of my computer and it's drives, yet it will not allow me to change the password so I can monitor what they might have been doing while logged on?  What if this were my child?  This guest left under sketchy circumstances, and I'd really like to be able to ensure they were not using my computer to do illegal things or to have illegal communications.
    Any help would be appreciated.  (It's odd that it was so simple to "create" a user and set a password for them.......but it's complicated or a little known process to reverse.
    Thanks.

    Here are two screen shots to show you what I am seeing.  The first screen shot shows it allowing me to select (highlighted in blue) my admin user (which is what I am locced in as).  The second screen shot shows it allowing me to select the "Guest" user (highlighted in blue).  However when I click on the user "Orion" nothing happens.  It will not change to highlight that user.

  • I do not know what happened, all of a sudden Firefox does not want to work anymore. Had been conected to audible. Retried about 4 times.... no luck had to force

    I do not know what happened, all of a sudden Firefox does not want to work anymore. Had been conected to audible. Retried about 4 times.... no luck had to force quit every time. The three Firefox app. into garbage, emptied garbage and redownloaded new version from Firefox. Reinstalled but same thing happened again... no connection.
    What can I do, I like Firefox better than Safari, had it for years on my Mac.
    Please let me know.

    '''''Email removed by moderator to protect you from spam'''''

    Hey.
    I think it might be the problem with one of your plugins.
    Try to uninstall the webbrowser AND remove the storage from Firefox in your user-account (Linux: /home/username/.mozilla). You can check the list of installed Add-Ons in Firefox under "Extras => Add-ons" or by pressing Shift + Strg + A (Linux).

    Hi ...
    Checked to see how much free space there is on the startup disk lately?
    Right or control click the MacintoshHD icon. Click Get Info. In the Get Info window you will see Capacity and Available. Make sure there's a minimum of 15% free disk space.
    Freeing Up Hard Disk Space - Mac GuidesFreeing Up Hard Disk Space - Mac Guides
    If disk space is not the issue, booting in Safe Mode deletes system caches that may help.
    A Safe Mode boot takes longer then a normal boot so be patient.
    Once you see the Desktop, click the Apple menu icon top left corner of the screen.
    From the drop down menu click Restart.
    See if that makes a difference ...
