Not entirely tapeless. Tapes make nice back ups and they are great for off line editing. It is becoming clear however, that making xfers direct to hard drives is the wave of the future - Especially for people like me working in short-form films. (The cost of disk space is the issue)

Since this is a new development, I do not know many people who have adopted a work flow built around master files on a hard drive.

I'm planning to make my next xfer a simul record to DVCAM and SDI direct uncompressed 10bit to hard drive. I want to make my offline edits from the DVCAM and then conform the edits to the uncomressed files on the external hard drive before taking the final cut back to the posthouse to finish on DigiBeta.

Is it realistic to think that I can conform my EDL to the uncomressed files on the external hard drive using a G5 dual proc (3.5GB) or do I need special hardware?

Please share your experiences.

Thanks in advance.

The links below are in reference to the technology being used by the posthouses I work with.
