    Specs:

    First choice is to look for RAM at a different store. Even if you have to drive several hours to get it.

    Second is to look for a hack, via Google, that will allow you to tell FCP that it is OK to run in less memory. It is possible this information is in a secret file within the FCP application. In my FCP 5.1 version, that informaiton maybe in the Info.plist file and in an attribute named AELMinimumRAMSize which is set to 512. One would use the Property List Editor to edit that file, which may require the installation of the development tools which comes on your install DVD. I don't have FCP 6 or access to it, so my information may not be of value to you, so CONSIDER THIS HIGH RISK.

    Third, I've hoped you learned this critical leason. You NEVER upgrade ANYTHING when you are on a schedule.

    Oh, the obvious answer was probably to say, reinstall FCP 5. But I'd also research that via the net to see if anyone has had issues downgrading. See Apples FCP forums.
