    Working on an old PowerPC G4
    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?

    Specs:

    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.
