Final Cut Pro on Macbook

Recommended Posts

Would I be able to run Final Cut Pro on a Macbook with 4GB of memory? I know the the MacBook does not of a dedicated graphics card like the MBPro does. If Final Cut Pro would not work on the MacBook with 4GB of memory then why, or who, would need 4GB of ram on a MacBook?

The way I read the minimum specs -

 

Minimum Requirements to Install All Final Cut Studio Applications

A Macintosh computer with a 1.25GHz or faster PowerPC G4, PowerPC G5, Intel Core Duo, or Intel Xeon processor

1GB of RAM

An AGP or PCI Express Quartz Extreme graphics card (Final Cut Studio is not compatible with integrated Intel graphics processors)

A display with 1024-by-768 resolution or higher

Mac OS X v10.4.9 or later

QuickTime 7.1.6 or later

A DVD drive for installation

 

- I'd say "No".

 

All MacBooks, as far as I can tell, only have an integrated Intel graphics card.

 

Maxing out the memory on any machine allows one to run memory intensive applications but doesn't account for applications which need better graphics cards in them.

Yickes! I feel like an idiot. Ok, that was my dumb question for the year. Thank you Husker for answering my question. I promise to actually do research next time I have a simple question.

NO such thing as a dumb question.

 

If you knew the answer, you wouldn't ask. Just because I knew where to look, doesn't mean you should automatically know.

 

I often find that answers are not as easy to find as I expect.
