I have been looking at the specs before buying Final Cut Studio. I noticed it is saying it does not support intel video cards. I currently only have a macbook with an intel video card. My question is will final cut still run on an intel video card or will it not even install?

    If Apple ships with a specific video card, FCP will work with it. FCP is designed to work with any Mac.

    But from what I read, MacBooks ship with NVIDIA cards...not INTEL. They have INTEL processors. ALL Macs do now.

    I think you're referring to integrated graphics cards that share the system RAM such as those in a MacBook or MacMini. FWIW, Final Cut Studio is NOT supported by Apple on a MacBook, McBook Air or MacMini, though FCP itself should be able to install and run.

    As said above, the latest version is not officially supported. However, if you delete a "certain" file in the contents, the installer will proceed through the requirements check. FCP will work - Motion is more taxing and your mileage may vary.

    What is that "certain" file?
