Ive read hundreds of threads re camcorders, editing software and many on this thread. Ive used the knowledge here to make my decisions but now I'd like someone to help with my own setup.
I'll be buying a sony HDR-HC7 and ulead video studio 10 plus.
I'm a beginner and will be filming a trip,family etc nothing too adventurous yet.
The specs of my PC made up by a local firm are :
Motherboard:ASUS P4p800-VM/LAN/8XAGP slot
RAM: 512MB PC3200 DDR SDRAM
CPU: INTEL P4 2.8GHZ HT 800FSB 512K
Hard drive: IDE HDC297- WD800JB 80GB 8MBCACHE 7200RPM
Graphics card: GRP900 ASUS V9520/TD 128MB FX5200 8XAGP
( NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200 )
I have to get a techie down here to install a firewire port anyway so he may as well make any changes if need be.....$40 travel aaaaaaaghhhhhhhh
Ive already sussed out its best to have an extra dedicated internal hard drive. I'll be happy to hear the news the components listed above will scrape by
