The "fuzzy felt" view of DV editing : LUSENET : Editing DV Films : One Thread

Sorry to be such a beginner but I guess you have to start somewhere.

I have recently bought a Sony PC01 with dreams of being the new tarantino/spielberg of the UK. Unfortunately what I didnt realise was how it all hung together so - after 2 weeks filming in the sun with my family in Dubai - I came home and realised I had no idea what to do next.

I have bought a couple of magazines and spoken to friends and have ended up realising that - if I want to do any editing without having 3 hands placed on a series of pause buttons - I am going to either have to buy a v.expensive PC with firewire bit'n'pieces and a large amount of diskspace or get something like Casablanca (which I understand is like the pc but without all the added hassle).

Whats my question I here you ask....well its really HELP! what should I do as the last thing I want to do is blow a huge amount of money on something I dont need!

Thanking you in advance . Zak

Hey! What you want to do is either invest in a PC or Mac (I would say go Mac just because of Final Cut) and get a good editing program (Premiere Pro for Windows, Final Cut Pro for Mac). Those are your best options and one of those programs can do some AMAZING stuff to your video. Hope that helps! -jason
