Is there anything wrong with editing like this?

My pc is mashed, so I was thinking of editing my footage from the hv30 for this film on ulead/premiere elements, exporting it to the same settings, then taking it too a more powerful less accessible pc for the final touches on other editing/compositing software.
This a problem free plan?



Btw what are the most striking advantages to using vegas/premiere pro over say adobe elements?

If you're working in HDV and export multiple times, you'll be re-encoding the MPEG data, which means you'll have what equates to a generational loss. If space isn't an issue, I'd recommend rendering to a lossless format. Then again, if it were me, I'd just try to do everything on the better machine.

As for advantages of Premiere Pro over Elements, the list is quite large. You might as well try to compare the $49.99 photo-editing software in the bargain bin at Office Max to a full-blown version of Photoshop. The professional versions of most any software package provide a much greater amount of power, control, and flexibility than their consumer-grade cousins.

What's your final editing software? You can save it out as an AAF which will save out the timeline without rendering the video and therefore you don't have extra conversion steps. Just make sure you have all the videos in one folder and save the AAF there and you can import that into just about any editor to finish it up.
