I'm having a problem installing Apple's Motion 1.0 onto a
dual 1.4GHZ G4 Mirrored-door Mac already running OSX 10.3.5.
(the machine has 2 GBs of RAM and tonnes of avail HD space).
Drive speed, memory and processors are ok for the software...
But according to Apple's website & the "last minute info" pdf &
the Motion install PDF - they state you must have ONE of the
following video cards ATI Radeon 9600, 9700 & 9800 series
or nVidia GeForceFX 5200 Ultra (current G5 macs & new iMac)
and nVidia GeForce 6800 Ultra.
Here's the hitch. The install Mac has an nVidia Ti 4600 vid card.
That particular card (a year & a half old) cost a bundle and is
STILL twice as fast in all technical specs as the ones Apple
mentions (with exception of the 6800 Ultra for 30" LCDs).
This card has 4 DACs not 2 and 128MB vRAM not 64;
10.4Gbit/sec. throughput, 4.8 Billion texels/sec, 136 Million
vertices/sec., 1.23 Trillion operations/sec. ...
It's one hell of a fast DVI-based video card and as mentioned,
quite a bit faster than any current Apple offering.
So, would there be some kind of work around that anyone
might know about? When attempting to install Motion, the
install stops and simply says I don't have a "capable" video card
(which is a load of hooey).
Suggestions (other than buying a new G5) would be helpful.
