Im looking for some advice on editing HD footage please. Please consider me a complete amateur.
Ive previously had to convert the HD format in order to edit and ive had trouble rendering it. I edited on my laptop which only has 4GB on Adobe Premiere
I have hours of 1920 - 1080 footage which I'd like to edit in the same format.
I also previously had problems getting the exact timing of cutting movie clips and music to where I wanted them. Was this because of my small laptop screen, the 4GB of memory and because I was using Adobe?
Can someone please advise on the following:
Do I need to buy a PC to edit efficiently? If so, what?
How much RAM do I need to edit efficiently in HD?
Do I need to get a large monitor in order to get my timing exactly right (where clips and music align)
What is a simple editing software package that will edit HD?
Im looking to edit movies of about an hour in length.
Many thanks for your advice
