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 noticed it is saying it does not support intel video cards. I currently only have a macbook with an intel video card
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.
-DHStandards are wonderful ... and there are so many to choose from!
So if Final Cut Studio 3 will install on my macbook with an intel video card, what will i not be able to do, or should everything work?Macbook White (late 2007), Mac OS X (10.6.1), C2D 2.0 GHz, 4GB RAM, 500GB Hard Drive
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.8 x 2.8 GHz Mac Pro, MacBook Pro 2.5 GHz, Mac OS X (10.5.7), FCP 7
ok if intergraded video cards are not supported then what about the new macbook pro's with the intergraded 9400m video card. will this work or if buying one will it have to have the optional 9600m video card?Macbook White (late 2007), Mac OS X (10.6.1), C2D 2.0 GHz, 4GB RAM, 500GB Hard Drive
