When I try to copy a video from my PC to a disk I get a "failed to copy" error message after several hours of processing with no further explanation. I can copy from the camera (Panasonic HDC-TM15) to the PC with HD writer with no problems. I have the same problem with my PC at my office that is brand new. Should i upgrade to HD writer AE 2.1? The Panasonic website suggests that the versions are camera specific.

Hello, I'm a video editor/videographer I have no idea how much to charge by the hour. So far i just charge my clients depending on how long and how much effects they want on there video. I us:
- FCP (Final Cut Pro Studio)
- Mac Dual Core.
- Canon XL1s
- Adobe Master Collection CS4
Here's a sample of my work:
I have my current setup with dual 27" displays running on a QuadCore Desktop, its nothing special but it gets my work done. Friends have been wanting me to upgrade my stuff so that I can edit their Indy projects. I have been wanting to upgrade anyway as I got a new job as a commercial editor and I would like to do some of my work at home.
I am going to build my own computer to use Avid Media Composer and Adobe Premiere, my budget is 15,000$
I'm a relative newbie video editor looking to expand my editing setup. I've read that I should be running a reference monitor other than my computer monitors. Is this only necessary for SD video? I deal exclusively with HD (or upconverted HD). Would that look the same on a reference monitor as on my cpu display?
If I DO need a ref monitor, what do you recommend? This might be a dumb question, but do I need an additional card to get from the computer to the monitor? Is there anything else I would need for this setup?
Thanks in advance for your help!
I am new to this. I need help purchasing a mac for video editing with FCP. I'm an aspiring video editor so befoe I invest in classes/training I need to get the equipment.
I was looking online for refurbished macs due to budget reasons however I didn't now whether or not to get mac pro or mac book pro.
what "specs" would be the best for editing and running FCP Studio 3?
Also what other things would I need to be efficient and productive as a freelance video editor?
Thanks in advance for your help!
I want to start a show with talking objects like that real stupid Youtube show called "Annoying Orange". The problem is I have no idea where to start or even what to ask. I just bought a camcorder, but have an old laptop which I plan on replacing soon (don't know if that's relevant).
First I would like to know what software I can use that allows me to put my mouth and eyes on an object, and one that's easy to use and or easy to learn. For the most part I know my way around a computer but am not familiar with all the video editing lingo.
im selling my copy of adobe premiere pro cs3, encore, and onlocation for $350. Im assuming you guys know what these programs are for and how much its worth brand new. still like $500 i believe for cs3. man, remember when i bought this brand new. anyway, ive fallen out of the whole video editing(moved to cars. lol) and well i have no need for these programs so im just trying to make some extra cash. cds work perfectly and come with the product key you need to use the programs.
for windows. not mac sorry. any questions feel free to email me at email@example.com
I have a very large collection of home videos in VHS format. I recently bought the canopus ADVC110 capture device to convert all the tapes to digital format.
The device came packaged (for some extra dollars) with Pinnacle Studio 14HD. The first impression was good but quickly I gave up on using the pinnacle software as it crashes too much and without any obvious reason to do so.
Therefore I am looking for alternative that would be powerful and STABLE. However, I am having a hard time deciding which software to choose as there are many programs available.
I hope that someone can put me in the right direction. I have been doing video editing for a long time not as a profession. I used for a long time Ulead Media Studio Pro 8. I recently bought a very powerful 64 bit operating system and I want to drop Media studio pro and choose a new editing software. I am undecided between Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 and MAgix video edit Pro x2. I tried both softwares for a month and I learnt the Magix in no time while it's taking me a lot more time to learn the Adobe. Should I stick to the Adobe or is Magix just as good ? Thank you, Umberto.
I could use some quick help. I work on Mac Pro's at my job and have been looking for a relatively affordable option to edit at home. I have the chance to purchase a 6-8 month old Mac Pro (without monitor) with a 2.93 Xeon Quad for the same price (about $2400) as a new iMac 27" with ani7 quad. The 'used' machine also has four hard drives, 4GB RAM and Apple Care warranty. Which system would you suggest?
2 - 1.5 tb hard drives 2 - 500 gig hard drives all Seagate barracudas. all new within the last few months
4 gig ram
