iMovie and additional graphic cards
Authored by: klax88 on Aug 21, '08 01:39:18PM

On my G5 iMovie launches with a message about one or more graphics cards not being compatible with QE and I can only then press ok and it quits. iMovie HD opens with about the same message but allows me to continue saying certain effects will be disabled.
iMovie is junk anyway compared to iMovie HD which I use mainly for importing. But now I'm wondering if Final Cut Express or anything else is affected as well.

The Tier 2 Apple guy was pretty rude but he finally conceded to send a note to the engineers of iMovie (I doubt he did) and he told me he would send another note to someone else so as to make clear what else should be included in iMovies listed system requirements. As they stand now no one buying the product would know anything at all about graphic card requirements or disabilities. Apple has in effect sold me Apple software that doesn't work on my Apple Macintosh computer, and they did not give me any warning that it wouldn't.
Are there any lawyers out there that would take my case against Apple for gratis? Why is ATI/AMD not concerned? They still sell PCI cards for Macs. I know, I paid almost $130 for one.
