Thread: Purchasing an editing system

    Default Purchasing an editing system

    I know that everyone here asks for advice on purchasing video editing systems, and im being added to that list. i am going to be editing HD video in both 1080i and 720i and i am looking to purchase a system that will have no problems editing the footage. the footage will be shot with either a panasonic hpx170 or a panasonic hmc150, and the footage will be transferred by either P2 card or the SD memory card depending on camera or just through firewire. i will be doing a mixture of video shorts (3-10 mins long) and short films (25-60 mins long).

    my budget will be between $2,500.00 to $3,000.00, so of course I am trying to decide between MAC or PC. if i go with PC, i will be building it from scratch myself, running windows 7 ultimate 64 bit and editing with premiere. MAC, i will be purchasing brand new (possibly a macpro, unless imac would work) and editing with final cut.

    i do have a budget, but saving money is always good. if i save some money, that means i can purchase more video equipment (lighting, mics, tripod, etc...).

    so any advice, or help you guys can give me would be greatly appreciated.

    thanks everyone!

    That's a bit vague - care to elaborate? Technically or user experience/interface?
