I will soon be getting a new G4 DP 1.25. My main use is video editing. A friend is willing to sell me her old copy of FCP 2 for cheap but I'm not sure if it will run in OSX. And the new G4 Power Mavs only come with OSX.

So can I run FCP2 in OSX or should I just go out and buy FCP3 and atleast be sure it will run in OSX and take advantage of the dual processors?

Thanks.

FCP2 will run in Classic Mode which does come with the new machines, and there is an upgrade available to FCP3, so your best bet would be to get this copy of FCP2 and then buy the upgrade.

Or, Final Cut Express is 20$ CDn less than the Final Cut Pro Upgrade (449 vs 479).

I can get Final Cut Pro 3 for $500 since I'm a student.

I guess I'll stick with FCP 2 for now, then just before I finish college in April I'll pick up FCP3 and maybe DVD Studio Pro, if I can handle it's $900 price tag.
