I am just going to go to the ground basic questions that i need answered about Final Cut Studio 2 and the New Mac Mini 2.53 ghz, 4gig ram.

-Will the Mac Mini render basic effects in real time such as Cross Dissolve, Titles, 3 way Color corrector, ext. ?

-Can I playback 1080i video in the timeline in realtime with basic effects?

-Will it take over 1 hour to render 3 minutes of HDV Video?

-Is this mac suitable for making 10 minute 1080i videos in FCP?

QUOTE Thanks

No, all Mac Mini has is FW800 for external Scratch Drive, and that will not support HD video editing. This is a duplicate post, BTW.

100% false as I stated earlier, I edit professional on a Mac Mini, MBP and Mac Pro.

It truly amazes me how people think that just because THEY cannot do it that it cannot be done....
