    iMac for editing vs. PC

    Here are the reasons why you should go for PC more then mac. 1. Macs cost alot more then a PC. 2. If you're a student and cant afford to buy software, well I hate to say it, but PC has more stuff for free ;) if you get my drift. 3. Yes, Final Cut Pro is a great program, but if you want to edit...

    Avid Xpress Pro HD

    yea, try and use an Nvidea card. Quadro FX cards would be best. But I know that Avid works in Legacy mode. Which means should work with a bunch of different vid cards.... Ummm gl :)

    Is Film School overrated?

    So far, I can tell you that Film school is a place where you'll get the chance to shoot a film for Cheap and at the same time build contacts for the future. I've met some NYU students in film, and they seem to like it. You get to shoot on an Arri SR1 first year, so thats cool.. My first year...

    I've done VTR editing. Not with VCRs but with actually Video Tape Recorders. Tape because its higher end stuff. Yup VTR editing is much like editing with a Steenbeck and film. Just you don't have any loose film lying around. Linear editing is what this kind of editing is called. I did...
