    Default need to get started! what system/software for under 3k??

    Hi everybody,

    Ive just been made redundant from my Job, (i was a tech op for a tv company) Ive decided that I want to become an editor and be able to do good creative effects, like the stuff on that cheesey slow-mo sky hd ad)



    and maybe even things like this (looks quite complicated)



    I wanda how they made that any ideas???

    anyways.... Eventially im hoping to get work in tv (or maybe even film)

    My main question is what software should I get??? I need to get a new PC aswell so should i go Mac or PC??? what sort of spec should i get?? i got about 3k and a sh*t load of spare time, (im going to build a suite in my office)

    Im sort of familar with the big 3, i used final cut at uni (4 years ago) i used adobe prem mucking about with home vids (about 7 years ago) and Avid newscutter for the last 2 years at work , but i only used them to a basic level.

    So basically im rusty but im willing to dedicate my self to learning the craft, I also want to be able to do some good special effects too (if im smat enough) , but im worried that if pick the wrong one or ones I wont be able to get a job and be basically wasting my time and money!!!

    thanks guys, Rob

    I would check out video copilot.. he uses mainly after effects, photoshope and premiere.. check out his tutorials and dvds he sells.. you'll learn a lot from him..

    As far as the system you want it depends on if you like Mac or PC?
