My son and I want to learn something together. Ipurchased a iMAC 24" computer. I am also looking into either Express 4 or Final Cut Studio 2. We are using Panasonic SDR10 video cams with SD cards because capturing video was a pain on a PC system. We are both PC users and have never touched this Mac yet. But, we know PC's really do not handlevideo well.
Alright, as I sit here, wringing by hands and rubbing my head, I just can't figure out which desktop to purchase for my next project. I am going to be putting together a series of DVD's for my Students and others. ( American Kenpo Karate - Home instruction course ). I am putting together everything I need to start. What I need now is a COMPUTER!!!! Which one is best for video editing and for the task at hand...Sony, iMac, HP, Dell, etc.
For years, we video producers have had to deal with how we share our videos with our associates or clients when we want to discuss changes, and where to go next. Weve mailed VHS tapes and DVDs and waited for their response. Weve made low-rez e-mail and FTP links and waited for their comments.
I am a new film student (as of now I have only taken theory classes, and yet to take a production class). I am thinking of buying an external hard drive. It has been a really long time since I have touched anything in relation to film or video editing so I am pretty ignorant to alot of the technology as well as the jargon.
I am trying to be able to flip the canvas (the whole video) of my film of a dance so that instead of entering from the left, it will look like the dancer is entering from the left. Anyone know how or in what program I can do this?
O.K. I know everyone has an opinion.....but what I need is reliable information on what production houses and TV station are using for digital (HD) software editing. I've used various incarnations of Pinnacle....Ulead....and the latest: Sony Vegas+DVD that has so many corrupt files incorporated on my computer that after the third project it still can't get beyond the rendering stage to the burn stage. I don't want to waste any more money on products that are not moving in the direction that the major production houses are gravitating toward.
I graduated with a degree in "Media Studies" and a concentration in "Production Technology" about a year and a half ago. I learned to edit video and audio, and run a news program. Unfortunately, there was very little in the way of anything that has actually helped me make a living. I thought I was going to become a video editor, but it's hard to edit video when your training consists of one lesson of AVID and one lesson of Final Cut Pro. It was very basic. I'm making less than $6000 a year now because I don't have sufficient skills.
Hello, Everyone. I trying to find the right computer for video editing and need Help! First off let me tell you what I've been through. I bought a HP m9000t with Q6700 4 gigs of ram and gt8600 card. it froze up during rendering. HP could not help at all. I sent it back.Then I bought a Dell XPS 420 Q6600 with 4 gigs of ram and a 880GTX card. Same thing in 4 differant programs, froze up during video rendering. I spent 9hrs on the phone with dell in 2 weeks, they can't figure it out either.. Now I thinking of getting a Mac pro. Ive been to the store 4 times.
