    For your budget, that all looks entirely sensible and the physically separate back up is your ultimate rescue plan. I’m my experience, you will get drive failures and that includes SSDs. Similar to you, I work on the basis of having multiple physical copies. I start with the SSDs used for capture, which I keep until I’m confident everything is transferred. I transfer this to another SSD for editing, which is kept for the duration of the project. I also transfer all files to a RAID5 drive, which...

    Hi Marc,
    I was going through old Pure Motion Edit Studio5 forums, and came across your review of ES5 back in, I think, 2005 or 2006.
    In it there was an article on using Google Earth with ES and a sample file - earth.wmv.
    However I can't find the link to that particular file. Could you please direct me to that file?

    PS. You can contact me at my email addrss.

    Just wanted to say I'm impressed with the new software facilities. The blog feature is a good one (so long as we don't end up getting blatant spam there) and the nice big friendly "Thanks" button is a great idea (and much more obvious than the "click on the scales" thingy). I haven't posted this to the forum as I note you haven't mentioned it yet, and I'm guessing you don't want everyone to hammer the new facilities until they've bedded in.

    Of course very few people will use the thanks button unless they're aware of it (like the scales which isn't even mentioned in the FAQ) so if & when you do mention the changes - please big it up!

    BTW can't get the "multi-quote" to do anything.......

    Hello, I was hoping you could help me. I am new to this site. I have a Power Director 7 Ultra, when I load the video in this program, it is making not the same time of the video. For example, when I play the video in my pc it shows total 8min 55sec, but when I load to Power Director 7 it shows total 8min 20sec. CAN ANYONE TELL ME WHY ITS DOING THAT???
    Thanks so much

What gear does an amateur really need?

by Marc Peters on 07-22-2013 at 12:30 PM
Amateur film-making is a ludicrously expensive hobby. Buying the latest must have gear will set you back a small fortune, but as amateur, do you really need all that gear? I've made some poor investment in gear choices over the years, so I thought I'd share my experiences with fellow enthusiasts and newbies to the hobby. So what do you really need if you're filming for fun?

It may sound ridiculous, but you may not need a camera. Chances are your smartphone will be a capable

Changing times

by Marc Peters on 05-29-2013 at 08:22 AM
What's changed?
Having used Google Adsense on the site for several years, my recent experience has led me to investigate an alternative. My decision was based on the following:

  • I want full control over the ads that are served to guests and regular members. I found that recent adverts were not in line with what I find acceptable, or would be happy to promote.
  • A recent exploit to Adense diverted guests and regulars to a site that could potentially expose a user to virus. I

The poor persecuted filmmakers

by Marc Peters on 05-09-2013 at 09:48 PM
Filmmakers and enthusiasts are a persecuted bunch of people. If the stories are true, we're frequently harassed for innocent and entirely reasonable filming. These stories always feature a misinformed officer to raise interest. And always accompanied by a raft of outraged comments. In my experience, this is far from the truth. In fact I seem to have the opposite problem. People are just too nice. My shots are normally ruined by polite people stopping or apologising. Clearly I'm just not the videographer

Get the best from feedback (and accept the negatives)

by Marc Peters on 04-29-2013 at 06:32 PM
Sooner or later you'll get a negative critique. Unless you hide your work away, someone will have something negative to say about your work. And it will hurt. How dare they? After all, everyone else gives you nothing but love.

Asking for a critique can be painful, particularly on forums where diplomacy and tact are rarely in abundance. But the tough love of a video review will help expose unseen weaknesses in your technique, technical ability and other skills. Receiving feedback is

What camera should you buy?

by Marc Peters on 04-27-2013 at 01:01 PM
If there's been one constant in my ten years of running this site, it's been the question, "what's the best camera". (And you can tell we're not as trendy as those DSLR sites, as we rarely get asked what's the best lens.) I can see the logic behind the question. After all, camera's aren't cheap and you'll want to get the best value. But it exposes that age old misconception: you need good gear to get great video.The real question you should be asking isn't what's the best, but "how
