I'm looking for a computer to edit with. What are the pros and cons of each? What tech specs are most important for editing? Also, is there much of a difference between Final Cut Express vs Final Cut Pro? Thanks.
Say I wanted to use a product in a screenplay for example, a zippo lighter. Could I use the actual lighter without having to pay for the rights (as long as there's no zippo brand name or whatever), or would I have to dump the idea altogether? Thanks.
I live in a downright dead area for making movies (Seattle), so I was wondering, how do most people find their actors? I'm planning on doing some shorts, so there would be no pay, am I out of luck? Thanks.
First post so here goes.
I recently found an old Sony CCD-V100/V110 (1980's) Video 8 Camera and had a few questions...
I've mostly been working with miniDV, so is it possible/hard to transfer video 8 to digital (for final cut)?
Are there any problems I should be aware of when using video 8...
