Hi, I am on a PowerPC G4 which I bought in 2001. I installed iLife 08 on it, so I have the upgraded iPhoto software, but apparently i need to have a G5 or Intel processor in order to use iMovie 08. Thus, I'm stuck with iMovie 06. When I first bought the computer, I could use Adobe Premiere, but Leopard doesn't let me use Premiere (whereas Tiger OSX did), so that's why I'm using iMovie. Anybody else have this problem?
QUOTE Thanks

Others might be interested in knowing what you mean by; "Leopard doesn't let me use Premiere". Can you not install it? If you can, does it crash or hand in some fashion during startup or use? I know it isn't the current version which is Intel only, so what version of Premiere are you talking about?

I'm just curious, but perhaps a little more information might bring in an experienced Premiere user to your request for information.

Hello xstep. I have Premiere installed, and I was able to open it when I was running Tiger. But now that I'm running Leopard, it tells me that it's a classic application. I get the message: "The application "Adobe Premiere 6.0 cannot be launched." And I get an error number 10828.

One option might be to install Tiger on a partition or an external drive.

Another might be an OS 9 emulator as mentioned here.

G4 you would be pretty disappointed with any emulator as they are so slow! Have you considered updating Premiere to Leopard as this link says:-

Another option with the 867 may be two drives, one set up with OS 9.2.2 to run your programs?

The new Premiere for OS X is Intel only.

Okay, thanks for your answers. I will try running OS9 on an external drive and see what happens.
