The system requirements are:

System Requirements


Macintosh computer with PowerPC G4 (867MHz or faster), PowerPC G5, or Intel Core Duo processor
1GHz or faster processor for HD features
PowerPC G5 or Intel Core Duo processor for authoring HD DVDs or for playback of DVD Studio Pro 4-authored HD DVDs
Mac OS X version 10.4.4 or later
Mac OS X version 10.4 or later required to use Image Units and 16- and 32-bit float rendering in Motion

So you would need to add Mac OS X or post what you would like to do then someone can look for a windows compatible product with the same features

This is one option, there are others but it is not a speciality of mine so someone else would need to answer it definitively, though if this looks like something you can / want to do then let me know and I will ask someone

I looked at the guide and it has links to getting the emulator, you then need a copy of Mac OS X. Mostly free, the exception being Mac OS X which you would need to buy

Alternatively, I can ask if there are other ways of doing this

If the programmes in the guide works OK then you should be able to run any software which runs on Mac OSX
