I am going to cut a documentary on a MacBook Pro (2.33Ghz Intel Core Duo, 2GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM), using FCP 6.
I've got about 13 hours of source material on MiniDV. It looks like it'll take about a terabyte to digitize it uncompressed. I am thinking about buying a Glyph gt050q to store it all on, in part because of the esata connection. Digitizing all the material on one 1 terabyte Glyph won't allow me the option of RAID-ing the drive for redundancy.
I want to avoid any hickups in playing out 30 minutes of video, graphics, and titles at a time.
Any advice/warnings/solutions re: this plan?
