Quick Storage Question

Hello, right now i'm torn between a 2nd Serial ATA drive or external firewire800. I'm leaning more towards the firewire800 due to portability, but my main concern is that does it move data quick enough where I can edit dv projects off that drive without moving them over to my primary Serial ATA drive?

Word going around is that an external 7200RPM Firewire 800 drive will give you equivalent to an internal ATA/133. This site has some stats:

Firewire 800 was getting sustained read/writes of 54/50 megabytes per second. Manufacturer mattered very little.

Was your clip captured in 12 bit audio? That might be the cause. Check the clip's audio profile (bits, hz) and see if it matches your setup.

No. 16 bit

It is in 16 bit. For some reason when I capture long clips, it beeps loudly, like it needs to be rendered.

Is there a red bar in the timeline? Render you audio.

Steve,
A FireWire800 drive would be more than fast enough to handle DV editing.
I use a FireWire 400 drive and haven't had any problems.

Yes, the beeping is definitely telling you that audio needs to be rendered, but I can't see how that is related to the length of the clip. I captured a full hour several times and never ran into that.

The only thing I can think of is the capture settings are set for something other than two channels of 48k hz, 16 bit sound and this is causing a problem.

Of course you can always throw away your preferences and see if it persists.

Mike.

It may have to do what amount of ram and other system parameters.

Thanks for all the quick replies guys! I'll definitely be picking up a Lacie drive this week.

I too am looking to get either an internal SATA drive 250GB or a Lacie external 250GB drive.
I'm leaning towards the SATA internal, cuz i would not need to share a drive between computers or need the drive to be mobile.
The SATA is faster and more reliable?

Mac and 24p

What do you use to edit 24p on your macs? What are the options of editing software for macs?

Thanks.

FCP HD and the included Cinema Tools. That's all you'll need.

Final Cut Pro works great for 24p editing.

Newb question : what software can do this?

http://uk.download.yahoo.com/ne/fu/a...s/formula1.wmv

I'm sort of a car enthusiast and I thought this clip was pretty funny! Does anyone know of a software that can do this? I'm new at this video editing thing. Thanks.
