    Final Cut Pro 5.1 and RAM
    Hi I just bought final cut pro 5.1 studio of ebay. I needed to upgrade from express to studio and the powerbook isn't going to able to run color so I think that's the best buy right now. I have a 15" g4 powerbook 1.33ghz 1gb ram and 64mb graphic card. I want to be able to cut down rendering time so I'm thinking about upgrading and adding another stick of 1 gb ram to make two gigs. Will that help speed up rendering alot, I'm pretty sure it will but what would be better even though I know the processor can't be upgraded but what would be best for rendering a better processor or 2 gb ram. I am doing dv and hdv editing as well but more dv then anything. Thanks

    • Additional 55GB required to install all optional templates, content, and tutorials (may be installed on separate disks):

    Hopefully this will help. I have installed 4GB on my system just in case I need it and that is for 5.0.4 (PPC). I will be loading Final Cut Studio 2 soon, so I believe I will be okay.
