I have a Beige G3 that has been upgraded to a 466 g4, 786Ram, 40gig HD, with firewire/usb PCI running 9.2.2. I am trying to find out if Final Cut Pro or Express will ever work on this machine. I read http://store.purplus.net/apficutpro2.html that Beige G3's are not supported. But I'm unsure if I should still regard this machine as a G3 since it has been upgraded.
I tried to run imovie 2.0 on it and it works fine until I try to capture a movie from my camera. I get an error message that says:
"the disk responded slowly. It may have been interrupted by something, or it may not be fast enough for your movie. If you have a lot of audio clips , you might try muting the audio to see if this helps playback speed."
I don't know why this would happen since all the internal hardware should be fast enough to handle importing one video clip. I am concerned about buying a versio of Final Cut to run on this machine if the hardware is not going to be able to handle it.
Any thoughts? Thanks.
