I'm currently running FCP HD on my power mac G5 and want to take advantage of the crossgrade offer to upgrade to Final Cut Studio. I know that apple say that this upgrade universal version will work on both PowerPC and Intel Macs but i'm wondering if anyone has any experience of running this version on a PowerPC G5 and if they have had any problems with it? Does it run just as fast or is it like running some PowerPC apps on rosetta on Intel Mac where they tend to run quite slow?

Many thanks.

Innes

innesgray,
We run the universal version on our G4 and it is just the same as the old power pc version. Can't see why it would be any different on the G5
