I really need some help/assurance with the equipment i have for the video capture/editing i need to do.
I'll be taping outdoor activities (mountaineering/trekking/climbing/rafting) and such and want to be able to make something pretty nice to give to my Partners as well as our Participants.
I know virtually NOTHING about video editing. I did a few projects using Final Cut Pro, but i'm a PC user and after splashing out for my new PC i can't buy anything else - like new editing software for example!!!! I also so a LOT of still photography and want to be able to insert the odd still photo in the video as well as add some music as well (i have some musicians who give me free license to use their music as i like).
Here's a list of the PC components, software and camcorder i have:
Case: Cooler Master RC-690
PSU: Corsair TX 850WATT
CPU: Intel® Core™ i7-920
CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-U12P SE1366
RAM: CORSAIR DOMINATOR 6GB (3 x 2GB) SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
Mobo: ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 (24GB max RAM)
GPU: EVGA 01G-P3-1285-AR GeForce GTX 285 SC Edition
Boot HDD: WD VelociRaptor 300GB
Data HDD: WD Caviar Black 1TB
Optical Drives: (2x) LITE-ON iHAP322-08 DVD RW
Monitor: ASUS MK241H Black 24" (1920x1200) 2ms HDMI Widescreen LCD
OS: Vista Home Premium SP1 64-bit
Editing Software: Sony Vegas Platinum 6 (freebie from a friend)
Camera: Panasonic PV-GS150 Mini-Dv tape
Am i reasonably set up with hardware? Software? Please advise me!
Thanks so much,
Update..... RE: Sony Vegas 6 incompatible with Vista. i just did a search here and found Sony Vegas is incompatible with Vista........thats bad news for me. I do have the original Panasonic OEM "Motion DV STUDIO" which came with the camcorder.... i'm stu**ed.
