Hello, everyone! Some of my buddies call me BJ so you can call me by that, lol, and here's a summary of why I'm here: I race XC (cross-country) on my ATV, and I LOVE making videos from all my races, practice sessions, etc.! I have a GoPro 960, I will have more GoPros soon! Anyway, I'm currently using Vegas 9 on our Windows Vista PC. This set up has done good so far, but I'm itching to get a/some better version(s) of Vegas... My biggest question is should I just buy the big-dawg Vegas Pro for $600, or would I be better off going with a combo of like Platinum 11 and Visual Effects?! And/or any others? I would love to buy a laptop and have it mainly for this editing: that's another question for later... What I don't want to do is save up a bunch of money, buy what I think will be good enough for even better editing later on, and then find out I should've just gone with Vegas Pro or something else... I don't want to tell you everything I plan on doing with my videos later on, some of it I want to be a secret... But, some of it is visual effects like smoke, fire, rain, lighting, etc. etc. I've looked at the softwares and they all could handle what my BIG plans are for later on with no sweat... Next question: any preferences on a laptop brand/model? I was thinking a Windows 7 with at least 2gb of RAM, etc. I'd rather buy more than enough computer than not enough... But I can't spend $2,000... LoL!
If anyone has other ideas and opinions please post em up! Again, I'd have to save up for whatever I buy, but I like to find out what I'll need early in the game...! Thanks for reading, and meanwhile check out my youtube channel! Peace out!
