A FC upgrade question ...

Hey there,

I am renewing with film edditing ... Have learned on reel to reel "a couple" of years ago ... I have learn Avid more than 10 years ago and my carrere has taken me away from film all together since then. Gladely I am turnyng to film editing again ;-) ...

My question ...

I now run this equipement :

Camera
Sony PD150 but upgrading to Full HD (ie: Sony EX-1 or in that range) this year

Editing
MacBook pro (brand new ... ) and FC-HD 4.5

Should I upgrade now to FCS 2 ? And what would me the major reasons why ...

Thank you all ... It's a pleasure to be part of this forum.

David

Welcome to the forums, David.

Since you don't own the EX1 yet there's no reason to jump out and get FCS. By the time you do get the camera FCS3 might be available, it would be better to spend the money on what will be the current version rather than purchase FCS2 and then have it replaced by version 3 in just a few short months.

Does FCP HD 4.5 run on an intel processor? If not, you're pretty much stuck upgrading to FCS 2. FCS 3 is "supposed" to be coming soon, so you should hold off if you can.

I can use FCHD on a Intel yes ... With just a small "tweek".

FC - Compresser - Live Type run pretty smooth ...

Thanks for the input for FCS3
