Am I missing something else? When my work bought me a new MacPro, my old Power PC went to one of the other editors, software included. I got the new Final Cut Studio, and I'm sure everyone knows Live Type's not there. What am I supposed to do with all of my old templates? Can I just buy FC Express and use that? Sometimes, often actually, I just need those cheesy effects without going through a whole motion process.

G5, Mac OS X (10.4.11), FC Studio 2

    You can install LiveType from the old FCS2 disks.
    There have been many similar observations over the last two years so searching for various solutions will yield something useful, probably.

    It's a sharing violation, since the old machine is still using it. I'm thinking of just buying FCE. The other guys in the office think that everything it did can be done between FCP and Motion now, but I haven't been able to make that happen, other than through some laborious process. I'm a little encouraged by the "sequence text" function, but there's an autodidactic learning curve.
