The video RAM is integrated onto the logic board and therefore cannot be upgraded. Sorry!

The MacBook video ram is the same ram than the computer ram, Apple call it "shared ram" so if you have 1 gb ram installed the 64 mb video ram allocation comes from the 1 gb ram. Unfortunately the vram allocation cannot be modified to give more ram to the video tasks.

sorry to say, but Final Cut Studio has some specific hardware requirements and cant be changed, so you need to get a new computer with more video memory.
