Mihai gave a good answer to my question: "I have £5,000 to spend PC/Video equipment for low-buget music videos", but I need some other responses
I said I try to go higher to a maximum limit of £10,000 but I can't OWN EVERYTHING BRAND NEW that I want, so I'm prepared to rent or buy second-hand.
I was suprised he recommended a PC over IMac, I was always told that Apple IMacs with FireWire were the way to go. My PC doesn't have a Firewire connections, but I know you can buy them on PCI cards. What about the programs? I heard that Final Cut Pro was the best for on Imacs. But is Adobe Premiere was good for PCs? Is Adobe Premiere as good as Final Cut Pro? And how much is a "quad-core" computer? I didn't even know what that is!
I know that "Two good monitors", means two good CRT TVs? The lights, mics, tripods could be rented depending on cost.
But I would appreciate it if you could tell me what YOU'D buy if you only had £5,000 or £10,000!
