Nice,

I'mm make this sticky when I've fixed the rather odd colour highlight it gets.

Thanks a ton for posting this -- unfortunately, the Motion .pdf link doesn't seem to work. I'd REALLY love to get the FCPX Help Documentation as a .pdf -- reading it in the help window is alternately making my head hurt and/or fall asleep. Must need more coffee.

Apple's naughty use of spaces in the URL and this board not recognising .pdf as a link terminator meant that the link didn't work. I've edited the original post. Thanks for pointing it out.

Ah ha! If you click on the small printer icon on the upper right hand corner of the FCP X Help webpage, it'll allow you to print the whole doc, which of course can be saved as a .pdf

The minimum system requirements are

- Mac computer with an Intel Core 2 Duo processor or better

- 2GB of RAM (4GB of RAM recommended)

- OpenCL-capable graphics card or Intel HD Graphics 3000 or later
List of Macs with OpenCL-capable graphics cards

- 256MB of VRAM

- Display with 1280-by-768 resolution or higher

- Mac OS X v10.6.7 or later

- 2.4GB of disk space


The current specs don't mention needing a Mac that can boot into 64-bit mode, although it might make FCPX run better.

For those with AJA equipment... their white paper on configuring FCPX to work with AJA kit .

Judging by the URL, they plan to keep the PDF updated.
