Wusses

Y'all are total wusses, I cut my DV tape with a razor and assemble it with duct tape. It's hard to know where to cut so I use a magnifying glass to look real close at it so I can see what frame I'm at.



Sometimes I use Vegas 5 on the PC though. IMHO it is faster than anything else out there, short of the razor/duct tape.

P4 2.8 Ghz 1 gig of ram.

Premiere Pro 1.5
After Effects 6.5
Photoshop CS
A variety of audio programs
Audition
DV Rack (in trial still, but I really like it)

All of this will do what I want it to do, I have access to it at school, but I need to buy it for myself soon. Of course that is, if I have the money to spend on it and/or if I want to continue in the field.

* Ulead MediaStudio Pro 7 with Service Patch 3 (Good realtime performance, but too buggy for my taste. I'm considering a switch to Avid Liquid 7 Pro. Extremely poor color correction. Titler is sparse compare to the competition, and very slow when creating more than one screen of titles.)
* I author DVDs in DVD MovieFactory 2 SE. (Performance is good, but there's a bug: I must close out of the chapter editing screen every two chapters to prevent the whole app from freezing. Navigating among the various screens is cumbersome at times due to the strict linear workflow imposed. Good for beginners, but very limiting for enthusiasts. Pros should look elsewhere.)

I run this on a DIY Pentium 4 2.8c (rarely overclocked to 3 GHz -- improves MPEG rendering a little), 1GB DDR400 memory in dual-channel mode, eVGA Nvidia FX5200 dual-head video w/128MB, dual 120GB SATA hard drives, on-board AC'97 5.1 channel audio, and LiteOn 4x DVD burner.

That's my dream system for my next upgrade, Sheila, although I still get by with a two year old P4 2.6 Ghz Dell Dimension 8300. I have nearly all the same software suite, except I encode with Cleaner XL. Can i ask your impression of fow fast is it, by comparison to older PCs like hyperthreaded P4s for app reasponse times and rendering and encoding?
