I'm trying to get some ideas together to make a good editing suite but my knowledge on the subject is pretty limited. All I've ever worked on is one cmptr w/ the nle system, nothing extra. In your setup, I know what the mac is and what it's primary use it but what about the other computer and screens; what do u use that for?

So the iMac is the main unit right, and the screen right next to it is used in conjunction with the iMac for expanding windows into that screen so I can have more stuf up at the same time. That screen usually has my Final Cut browser window and the effects pane, and I also run the video scopes in that as well, while im editing. The other screen to the very left is attached to my PC system, which i have After effects and Final Draft. Usually while im designing stuff on the mac i have it open with itunes and play music. I also have a couple games on it as well to take some of the stress out.

PC:
22" Samsung WS
Athlon 6800+
4gb PC2 800
1 320gb SATA
1 500gb SATA
BFG Nvidia 8600 GTX 512mb
Silverstone 750W power supply
Lite-On DVD burner
Final Draft
Photoshop CS2
Macromedia Suite MX

Mac:
iMac 24" 2.8ghz
22" Samsung WS
4gb RAM
320gb internal
(2) 500gb external
Contour Shuttle Pro

It's the real thing, but it's "street legal".

I also have a shelf to the left that contains most of the Digital Juice library.

Our Hobbit Hole

Here's our work space the right side is the HD setup Quad core 1.5TB HDD
and since this picture was taken Ive added a Samsung 23" HDTV to supplement the Sammy 22" WS monitor, the left station is the SD Editing station, On the other side of the room is a X2 4400 HTPC system which acts as a spare HD editing system in case we get real busy and is connected to our sammy 42" HDTV used for viewing finished projects. All 3 Systems Are hardwire Lan Networked together and can share video & audio Data, The HTPC
Has over 1600 Albums converted to high bit rate MP3 Files for music listening & sharing between the 3 stations, everything intigrates very Nicely actually. The HTPC has been upgraded to BD R/W and a HD PVR has been added as well. The next upgrade is to add another BD R/W to the HD workstation for full independence on that system.

Who is the maker of your desk? I've been looking for one like that for a while.

Set Up

Some of you folks have much better design skills than we do here. Ours has just sort of grown via the "it sorta fits here" school of design. It looks a lot better when the overheads are off, so we make sure the lights are low when clients are around....

Shooting Central Gold.

Okay, now that I have your attention.

I've just returned from a 6 day session in Central Otago, where the plan was to shoot as much video as humanly possible on the Autumnal changes that the area experiences.

The colours are just drop dead geogeous if the light behaves, but as the weather is decidedly fickle, it's a big ask in the time frame available (the colours can come and the leaves drop in less that a week in the right conditions).

It was whilst driving some of the 1,800 km I covered during the 6 days that it occured to me:

"How many people would believe the amount of gear one person could haul round the whole of Central?"

It then occured to me that this might be of interest to some at DVinfo, so here goes.

1. Delivery System:

Chosen for the job, cavernous and comfortable. Too low and long for off roading but working on an alternative.

2. Day Pack:

Contents:

Large bottle of water, ditto sunblock, ditto insect repellant. Laser Range Finder, Spare batteries for everything, 3 - 4 tapes, 2 - 3 SD cards, cleaning gear, filters.

3. Bag Lady:

Really must sort this. Manuals, bulk tapes, spare glasses, tools, tie downs, magnifying glass (?), cables, chargers, gaffer tape etc.

4.Blue Box:

Headphones, Zoom H4 digital recorder, XLR cables - 1, 2, 3, 5 & 10 metres.

More in next post................


CS

PS. Another whoops. The camera is a Canon XH A1, in case anyone was wondering.
