I'm evaluating Vegas, brand new to video production. Will be setting up video production for short videos (up to about 40 mins.) for the most part. A colleague has Final Cut Pro experience on the Mac and believes this is the best video solution today.
I've heard many good things about Vegas on a PC, and I tend to believe that these days a PC can do about as good a job as a Mac for video production, provided you invest in a good amount of RAM and HD space and use one of the newer dual or quad core processors.
I'd like to hear from anyone who's had experience with Final Cut Pro on a Mac -- is Vegas a better solution for you, or is it just a matter of Vegas costing a good deal less and the hardware also costing a good deal less?
Any thoughts and experiences are welcome. Thanks.
