Hi all, any advice here would be greatly appriciated! I want to make videos of my band using 2 cameras. The advice I got was Vegas because of it's ease of dropping 2 cameras into a single timeline. The way they snap together really looks easy. I've tried it on a mac system using imovie and it was labor intensive. So, for Vegas I need a new pc. The direction I was pointed into was this: quad core with i7, 4 gigs ram, 3 hardrives for os, render, storage. Blu ray burner also. Also Windows 7 64 bit.
Now here is the other thing, Vegas platinum will only run 32 bit so any ram past 4 gigs is unused. However if I get inspired to go Vegas pro I can run 64 bit and add more ram. I read though that vegas platinum has problems with running long hd movies smoothly. Am I on the right track? Should I buy a pc from one of those builders on ebay or maybe spend more and get something like a dell workstation? Oh yeah, Im using a new Sony HD camera, cx-160.
