Wow, today was interesting. I went to my friend's place, the video professional, to help him out with a project. Got some time in using VT, such a sweet setup. Dual 21" LCD monitors for the desktop, plus a 25" NTSC monitor to view the final results. The PC had about 4 terabytes of HD storage and a 3.8GHz P4, so delay wasn't a problem.
The project itself wasn't too bad, a 60 minute dual camera shoot of a presention, which had already been loaded onto the hard drives. All I had to do was dovetail about 150 slides into the presentation at the right times. My friend couldn't do too much of it since he'd just had a mini-stroke the week before, couldn't easily do repetitious fine movements without fatigue, and had a deadline looming.
We got it done, he advising me while I handled the edits. Found a few problems along the way, some of the slides (provided by the customer) were wrong aspect ratio for video or had overscan problems, and the presenter had a lapel mike dropout in a few spots, but VT made it easy to readjust and fix.
Anyway, the video goes on the air next weekend and my friend has invited me to help with some other projects.
