Nice tutorial. But the big question: can we also start FCP after installing it on this way? Because FCP the graphics hardware not supported into VMWARE or VirtualBox….
Yes, you can install that. You can also configure graphic hardware.
nope, its not supported graphic 3d accelleration in vmware for osx, so you cant run any 3d application…i tried and doesnt work.
same here, anyone have a fix for this?
so this article defeats its purpose. the fcp will not be fully functional within virtual machine. additionally, since the gpu acceleration isn’t working, it will encode like a turtle. it’ll just be a waste of time. will be better-off with apps native to windows. bottomline? DO NOT resort to this method – it’s not worth your time. tsk.
Do you still have to pay for it from the PC?
