I recently filmed a documentary, and now have to edit it. I have over 17 HOURS to edit. I know I'll need between 200 and 300 gigabytes of space. So I'm going to buy a new hard drive. Is external a good choice? Or would an external drive transfer too slowly for editing video?
(I have USB 2.0 and a firewire capture card. I'm not sure if I can use the capture card like a normal USB port.)
