What formats are you shooting most?

Are you currently transcoding footage to an editing codec? Does that sound like a good idea or a bad idea?

Are you mostly doing cuts and titles, or complex multi-track graphic sequences?

I'll have to leave the question of Canon MXF performance to someone who works with it on Vegas.

Otherwise, the machine spec seems to me to be a decent "economy" approach, you should get mid-range performance out of it. It should support cuts & light graphics across most source formats just fine, if the Canon MXF codec support is good.

Can anyone on Canon MXF comment on the processor demands?

Re: PC config - any good for Vegas 12 (and 11)

which flavor of core i5? there are many different clock rates and different generations and they give you different raw performance. i use cpu passmark (PassMark - CPU Benchmarks - List of Benchmarked CPUs) as a guide, mostly useful for comparing *relative* performance of cpus.

for example, a core i5-2500 running at 3.3GHz has a passmark rating of 6580 whereas an older core i5-650 running at a nearly identical 3.2GHz has a passmark of only 3213.

they have similar ratings for various graphics cards.
