VX1000 and NLE Systems

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Editing DV Films : One Thread

I just got my hands on a Sony VX-1000 and getting back into documentary videos and shorts.

My next level is editing. What is the best, computers, cards, sound, programs.

All responses are very appreciated.

please look into the canopus dvrex. i use it and it's great. i also have premiere for more complex editing. the rex comes with rexedit. simple and fast. there's going to be a big up-grade to it in nov. or so. for audio i use sound forge. i have a gateway g6. it's a 450 mHz, 128 ram, and 24 gigs of storage. go to the rex user group for alot more info. they're great over there. good luck

I've seen the dv-rex m1 in use on a pc and it seems ok, though since you have a dv camcorder with firewire capability already a strictly dv editing solution would seem less expensive. A nice new Mac G4 with 128 megs of RAM will run about $1900. It already has a firewire input so you'll only need the software to pull it in and edit it. You can get Final Cut Pro from Apple for about $1000 or Edit DV from Digital Origin (a great choice) for a couple hundred less. Also, you'd want to get a good 7200 rpm, Ultra DMA video hard drive to go with your system hard drive, another $300 for a 20 to 27 gig drive.
