I was wondering what do you need to edit sony ex-1 footage? Will a simple G5 mac do the trick? I heard something about sony software has to be downloaded to view the footage, but would I need an HD card as well? and how would I get the footage off the sxs card and onto the mac? any help would surely be appreciated. Thanks!
You don't need an HD card, unless you want to monitor your edit in real-time on an HD display. In which case an AJA Kona would be handy. The transfer itself can be done with a MacBook Pro or with an ExpressCard reader.
