Final Cut Pro 2.0 requires Mac OS 9.1 or later. However, it says "not certified to run in Mac OS X or in Classic-mode" so does this mean it may or may not work? Has anyone used it in OSX? I just ordered my first mac, a powerbook and I am really interested in the UNIX features that OSX has to offer. I am however also looking at starting some digital video editing. (something I can't really do with my linux box) So does anyone have any tips or suggestions? Thank you.

FCP doesn't work in Mac OS X at all. You'll have to be in OS 9 in order to do anything with video editing. The only option for now until Apple comes out with FCP 3 (From rumors I've heard) is the use iMovie. It'll get you started, then you should be able to moe on to FCP, when it comes out for OS X. I think I've heard about it coming on these boards somewhere in december during a dv expo or januaryish...

Hope that helps out.

I used it in 0SX.1 and it worked like normal, but no firewire support. So I never tried it again. I like X but I only have iMovie2 of X that does a great/easy job for caputering, but that is the only app in X besides IE. But time will fix that! Also that means X will be tweeked a bit better by the time these apps we want get out.

How did you get it to work in X? I was not able to, so I have to continually boot back into OS 9 to use Final Cut Pro 2. Perhaps I should just wait for FCP 3 to come out. It's probably going to be somewhat similar to that of Microsoft Office, how they suddenly made a Mac OS X version.
