Hi,
Posted this in the editing forum, thought I might find some info here too.
I'm contmeplating shooting a short film in HDV using a DVX100a then editing on my 1.67Ghz Powerbook G4 (with 1GB RAM) using FCP 5.0.
Is my hardware/software up to it? Any advice, things to keep in mind?
Thanks,

Matt

so lets say Matthew shot with an HVX,
could a power pc 1.67 powerbook handle HD?

or do you need a newer intel model?

i've been doing SD on the same rig (except 1.5 ram)
and am hoping to soon start working with HD telecines...
will my machine be able to handle it
if i go easy on the compositing/ effects?

thanks
