    Final Cut Express Compatibility?
    Hello all,

    I just have a quick question concerning Final Cut Express 4 and Snow Leopard. I've read that there has been a few problems with certain programs not running very well (or at all) on Snow Leopard, and I'm wondering if FCE 4 might be one of those programs. I ask because I want to purchase a new iMac and have FCE pre-installed onto the system. And before I do that, I want to make sure that it works on Snow Leopard.

    Currently I'm a Windows user, but I desire to switch to Mac (irrelevant information I know, just thought I'd mention it) for video editing purposes and also to have a stress-free OS experience.

    Thanks to all who respond!

    Specs:
    Late 2013 rMBP, i7, 750m gpu, OSX versions 10.9.3, 10.10
    I have used FCE a few times since upgrading to snow leopard, and haven't had any problems (I primarily use FCS2) - plus FCE is not shown on any lists that I'm aware of reflecting it being incompatible with snow leopard.

    There is a major list you can find here: Snow Leopard Compatibility: Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard Compatibility List of software that has been found compatible or incompatible w/ SL. Most software suppliers that want their products to continue seem to have arranged to do updates for SL.
    My Macs: Late 2013 rMBP w/ 750m; Mac mini G4, 1.25 GHz, 512m ram (server); Late 2011 11" MBA, 1.8GHz i7, 4Gig Ram, 256Gig SSD, HD3000; Powerbook 12" G4 1.33GHz running Debian as a server; Apple TV (1080p version)
