You can find a version of FCP 6 or FCS 2 for pretty cheap on ebay. You can pirate it, although everyone I know that has done that has had a different issue with it. Actually, I dont think DVD studio works on pirated versions, but you may not need that.
If you just get FCP pirated, I think it works fine although might have crashing issues with plug ins. If you get FCS (final cut studio) then I know it will have multiple other issues.
Just my experience from others I know that have pirated versions.
And this isnt a lecture about not pirating programs. That would be hypocritical of me.
