Add Edius 3.0 to the HDV tribe

3.0 will have HDV support and you can mix it with other standards if I read the specs correctly.

With a 3.2 gig processor and fast disks, you apparently can get RT with two layers of HDVideo including some video and sound filters plus transitions.

At $149 to upgrade from version 2.51, this appears to be a bargain.

I'd say you'd be fine with a P4 2.4

For capturing you only need the bare minimum because capturing isn't CPU intensive, editing is.

The minimum specs for Edius Pro are assuming you want to edit the HDV footage.

For capture I would imagine any FireWire equipment laptop would work (including P3s.) Only native HDV editing needs the recommend dual Xeon system.

Edius 3 seems to be THE choice for laptop capture since only the capture app needs to be in memory not the full app, nice move Canopus!

on say a 1.5G P4 laptop would you think I could get a decent preview window size when capturing?

John,

That is also how Aspect HD works. The capture tool (HDLink) is independent of Premiere Pro. Even when using the CineForm HD format, you can delay the conversion of a later time (or a faster PC.)
