New to forum and video editing, hello to everyone.
At the moment we are using premiere elements 9 to see how we got on, also trying few others before splashing on Premiere pro etc.
(any suggestions about editing program will be very welcome (pc))
My current of the shelf pc is not coping very well with video editing, and we were thinking about building something good enough for hdv editing.
One of our friends has come up with proposed spec, as many of you have been through this process before, could you please advise if this is any good for running premiere pro or similar programs.
What is your budget? If your going to treat video editing as a source of income, this is way too little to spend. If it's a hobby that is a different story.
Windows 7 Pro not Premium
8 - 12 GB of Ram instead of 4.
USB 3.0 ports are not expensive.
Get yourself a dedicated audio card, Even £30-50 is well spent.
DONT rely on on-board graphics ever ever ever! Get yourself a dedicated graphics card. They do not cost much these days and make all the difference!
I can share more if required, But this should hopefully point you in the right direction.
