hi, i just purchased Premiere Pro 7, and i heard it needs a pretty decent PC to run on. my PC is probably average, at best, for editing. i'm just getting into video editing, and am slowly but surely looking to assemble a serviceable arsenal with which to edit video.
mind you, i do this purely as a hobbyist. i need not the biggest, fastest, most powerful rig out there. i just need something that won't get in my way.
currently, my specs are:
CPU Type Intel Pentium 4, 2400 MHz (18 x 133)
Motherboard Name Dell Dimension 8250
Motherboard Chipset Intel Tehama i850(E)
System Memory 512 MB (PC1066 RDRAM)
BIOS Type Phoenix (10/22/02)
Communication Port Communications Port (COM1)
Communication Port ECP Printer Port (LPT1)
Video Adapter NVIDIA GeForce4 MX 420 (64 MB)
3D Accelerator nVIDIA GeForce4 MX 420
Monitor Dell E171FP [17" LCD] (8R3392B7A1EV)
Audio Adapter Creative SB Live! Series Audio Processor
IDE Controller Intel(r) 82801BA Bus Master IDE Controller
Floppy Drive Floppy disk drive
Disk Drive WDC WD1200JB-75CRA0 (111 GB, IDE)
Optical Drive HL-DT-ST CD-RW GCE-8481B (48x/24x/48x CD-RW)
Optical Drive SAMSUNG CD-ROM SC-148C (48x CD-ROM)
SMART Hard Disks Status OK
(sorry if the formatting is bad).
feel free to laugh at my specs, i won't take it personal.
i started using Movie Maker, picked it up very quickly and found it was very bare bones. i decided to make the move up to Premiere (i taught myself Photoshop so i'm not easily intimidated, i know Premiere Pro is for the big boys). i just want to make sure i have a decent rig to make video editing a fun hobby.
thanks for any and all comments.
