Well, I have been very quiet of late due to all that our Church and others around us are doing to help with the Katrina dissaster. :cry: However, yesterday turned out to be a day to remember.
Apparently, a magazine card I sent in a while back from AVID has won me the following and I have to share as I know I am now going to have to step up my learning curve substantially and most likely my computer to boot. Get ready for many questions to come.
From Avid Technologies:
Complete Avid Express Pro HD Software Package
Sony's new HVRA1U High Def. Camcorder
Needless to say I was in total shock and still am as my wife stated last night, what in the heck are you going to do with that.
Now the great news is that the camera will be of great benefit in the long run for our Church use as well as the potential for me to try my skills again. Of course it will take us months if not years to learn what all this can do. The bad news is that the software requirements for a machine to handle this is substantial. Not sure if my machine is even close to being hoss enough. I know for sure I will have to add more memory which is not a big deal. I wonder if I can convince the church to put out what looks like a minimum $ 3,000 for a video editing dedicated machine.
What do any of you know about these two items : Any input welcomed and appreciated. Do I sell the software and keep the camera? :idea:
