I am currently attending film school and I have about $5000 to $6000 to spend on a Video Editing Setup. I doing alot of research right now and I have an idea what I'm planning to buy, I have my own preferences but I want to know what the members of the Videomaker forum would do for their own setups having my budget.
I'm not going to list my potential Video Editing Setup because I want an unbias response but would like to see what type of gears you all are leaning towards.
Additional info; I planning to shoot my Films and projects in HD, so setup your gear towards those specs. I'm trained in the basics of editing software (FCP, Vegas & Avid), so learning new editing software is not a problem. Also, I plan to buy a prosumer market camcorder and equipment next semester but PLEASE limited your responses to Video Editing setups.
Details would be greatly appreciated. (example; type of computer, mouse, keyboards, monitors, editing platform, etc.)
