walkingclock is on a distinguished road

I currently have AVID Xpress Pro on a Powerbook with Panther, and it's mostly worked quite well, though it doesn't really integrate with iDVD so much. My hard drive just died, so I'm looking to get a new one, and thought I may go ahead and upgrade to Tiger. But of course, then I'll probably have to shell out another 80 bucks for iLife if I still want iDVD, and FCP Studio 2 is way too expensive for me. That's beside the point I guess. My version of AVID is older, like 3.8 or something. I was wondering if anyone else has experience with AVID on Tiger. If so, what's your experience been? Should I stick with Panther, or will it function better on Tiger? Will it integrate better with the new iDVD on iLife?
QUOTE Thanks

although i have no experience with Avid, i doubt that. iDVD is made by Apple and Avid isnt, so they will probably never integrate unless one of the companies buys the other, which wont happen because they are both HUGE and don't need the money or resources.

If Avid can export its data as a quicktiime movie, then you should be able to import it into iDVD.
