I'm NTSC-based. I know my trusty hard drive (non-RAIDed) can handle DV25 footage perfectly for my needs. I think it can handle 1080i HDV footage already.

What other formats would it be able to handle? Could it do 1080p HDV?

Dunno what this has to do with the ART of editing...but the drive, depending on the connection type (firewire 400, firewire 800, eSATA...or internal SATA), should handle HDV just fine. HDV and DV have the same data rate...about 3.6MB/s...so the drive will do fine.

This forum used to be called "The Art & Craft of Editing". We still welcome those "craft" type of questions too...

I think the forum might have been renamed because most of the technical questions could go to forums dedicated to specific editing applications - but general technical editing questions are still welcome here.

We just want people who visit later to have a good chance of finding the thread when they search for a similar question.
