I recently bought a MacBook Pro, and tried to install Final Cut Express 2.0.1, but when I try to use the software it asks me for an AGP graphics card. Can any one tell me what that is, where do I find it, and how do I use the software?

    FCE 2 is not really suitable for Intel Macs - you need to upgrade to FCE 3.5.

    However, to make FCE 2 work, albeit slowly, press the "esc" key whenever you get the AGP error message.

    Ian, with the AGP card problem. Which I have today sorted by upgrading to 3.5 do you only mention pressing the escape key and not that excellent solution of using Textedit and changing the line in the plist to PCI. Which worked super for me until I got the upgrade. Dave . ps. the new 3.5 is working fantastic on the MacBook Pro. Fast its lightening.D.

    I was just keeping it simple - not everyone wants to fiddle with programs.
