I was in the early stages of looking for a new computer to edit on (my internet-virgin, editing only VAIO is over eight years old! Time for an upgrade…). I currently have a two monitor setup, but was looking to expand to three. You know… the classic two for the program and the third for the actual video.
I don’t mind spending a little bit on a special graphics card to do it… my budget for the computer is $3K (I’ve been saving for a while! =).
Thanks in advance!
with that budget I’d look at a 30 inch display….lots of room for tool palets and work windows…..a second monitor for video preview…
oops, I didn’t take enough time to read that right…that’s your computer and monitor budget!
go with an Imac (24 inch)…(up the ram) and add a high def tv for video monitoring….
for my needs, (location work mostly) I work with a macbook, external raid, and flat panel tv and or video projector!
I plug the tv into my (spare) camcorder, a dvi adaptor to the projector, and tough it out on the macbook (ram maxed out at 2 gigs).
