Final Cut 4
When Final Cut 4 comes out do you thing the price of Final Cut Pro 3 will go down or the new one will just cost more?

Imran Zaidi January 6th, 2003 11:04 AM

In normal fashion with software as opposed tohardware, as soon as a new version comes out, it will instantly become harder and harder to find the old version.

This is due to the fact that 1. Demand drops off significantly, and 2. A lot of times suppliers/manufacturers will replace their customers' (vendors from whom you and I buy) remaining inventory of old software with newer software, so they are not stuck with useless merchandise.

If you are lucky you will be able to find the older version from smaller vendors who are not lucky enough to have good supplier/manufacturer ties, and yes, you will find it to be at a discounted price.

barebones g4?
Does anyone know if you could call Apple when ordering and make some specific changes that you can't on the web? Like having no harddrives, no ram, etc? Wondering if anyone's done that or if anyone know if Apple will do that. Thanks.


Jeff Donald January 7th, 2003 11:07 PM

Apple won't, but value added resellers can get them pretty much that way. Why would you want no drive? A small 60 gig drive is just not that expensive. If you don't want it for another machine or for backup, just put it on ebay. I bought a 60 gig WD for $79 with a $20 rebate for my Dad's iMac. I don't know about Ram. Contact a VAR and see if they will sell you a bare machine.


Matt Betea January 8th, 2003 09:55 AM

Thanks. I just figured I already have the stuff I could use in this comp, why not swap it over. I'll check and see if Powermax can do anything like that though. Thanks again.

Importing files to Trinity/Globecaster
I have recently taken a job at a b'cast facility with the Trinity editer/switcher. I have never used it, nor do I have a manual. My main question is can I import graphics from photshop for lower 1/3's. And can I store After Effect movies (or any moving image) in the switcher to use as backgrounds during live broadcast for "picture in picture" or some other use.

Not many people have heard of this system, or have used it, so any help would be great.


Ken Tanaka January 12th, 2003 12:17 PM

These were powerful all-in-one systems during the short life of Play, Inc.

I don't know the answer either. So you've no documentation? Maybe contacting one of the companies looking to upgrade/support these old boxes, such as Spectrum might turn up some help.

Kevin McCarthy January 12th, 2003 01:15 PM

Thanks for the help.

I actually found a support forum for Trinity (now Globecaster).

Importing PowerPoint files into FCP
I have a pc version of powerpoint. Is ther something I can do to import a presentation into FCP? I know the Mac version you can save the presentation as a QT, but that option isn't available with what I have. Any suggestions other than buying Office for Mac?
