I have around £2000 to play with, hardware only.
I'm hoping I can build a NLE that can edit HD in realtime.. (Realtime colour correction, transitions, preferably mixed formats etc)
The formats I know I'll be working with are
-XDCAM EX (EX1)
-1920x1080p h.264 (Canon 5D mkII)
IDEALLY I would also be able to work with RED's REDCODE 42mBps, though I imagine I couldn't expect to edit this in realtime? (at least not without proxy?)
I really need some help!
My understanding is that the first thing to decide is my realtime hardware; for example:
-Matrox RTX2 (which would dictate Premiere CS4, and specific chipset/etc) though I believe the RTX2 can't work in 1920x1080p?
While I would be interested to hear any suggestions/information, I am really only looking to spend £2000 max, so just want to be realistic about what I can do with that in terms of realtime video editing for my low-mid budget freelance work.
