It works fine for me on 10.3.9. Except for the bugs that never got fixed from 8.3. But other than that it seems okay on my G5. Did you ever think of upgrading to 10.3.9, its free?

Hi nikturnal

I have OSX 10.3.9 and tiger 10.4.2
but FCP 4.5 HD and the DECKLINK HD DRIVERS work best with 10.3.8
and i have no plans to update to FCP 5.

So i just need to know if LW 8.5 will run ok with my setup.
PS can you tell me more about the bugs please

hope to buy 8.5 this week

Yours Paul

I understand about the upgrading issues. I've been in that situation myself before. If it aint broke dont fix it, right. As far as the bugs go...check the general support section of the forum at the top. You will see bug workshops where people report issues regarding 8.5. Also check the mac discussion at the top. Its a powerful program, I'm sure you will be happy with it. :thumbsup:
