for the price point, I’d seriously take a look at Sony Vegas Pro 8, Vegas has handled HDV for quite a while with little problems at all compared to others such as FCP, Adobe or Pinnacle…. Vegas doesn’t need a huge honking computer to work well, you can get by well with a dual core processor, decent 256 meg video card, 1 gig of ram, but since you are doing HDV, make it 2 to 4 gig. Vegas has most of the tools you’ll need in it, i.e. real time sound editing, compositing tools, yada yada yada. It’s a great package, it also comes with DVD architect 4.5 to make your dvds.
