I work as assistant video editor for 7 months now, and hardware was (almost) never an issue, since the place where I work is provided with all the hardware and setup I needed for editing.
But I'm starting now to bring projects to my own home, and of course I had to make some upgrades in my computer.
-- The question is: does the USB2.0 from my external HD have enough speed/stability so I can edit any video material? Providing I don't intend to do any DV "capture" directly to it (to avoid any frame loss during the capture).
I'm using AVID here at home, btw.
Ps: sorry for any english mistakes and technical words that I used that may be completely different in english hehehehe.
