I'm an editor. I have a MacBookPro 17" with 10.4.11 looking to upgrade to Snow Leopard. Must I go to Leopard first? If not, what adventures can I expect from third party software, especially FCP Academic 5.1.1 - Adobe CS4, etc.

    Can't answer your third party software questions but you can go straight from Tiger to Snow Leopard assuming your computer meets other specifications. [Snow Leopard 10.6 Technical Requirements|>

    You will need to run Software Update to get FCP to version 5.1.4 along with all the highest possible updates for the rest of the FCS suite. CS4 also works in Mac OS X 10.6.

    Is there a specific editing reason to move to 10.6? If not, you may do well to stay with a system where the Apps and the OS were designed to be compatible.
