Hi thanks for reading this. i am very very new to editing and have just bought a mac book pro with final cut express. i also have around 5 hours of footage that i shoot on a pd170. i would like ot know the best way to get this onto a hard drive for editing. i only have one firewire port on my macbook pro that i am using for the camera - computer link..... i have a usb external hard drive but have been told that usb is not good for video ediitng.... what should i do? how should i set up my system? i dont think having 5 hours of video on my mac book pro hard drive would be a good idea....any help please?
thank you in advance
