I have a chance to edit a for a TV show that we are producing. I have never done this before so it is going to be a challenge. I currently work with Vegas 5.0 and have built several DVD's with it. I will be upgrading my software and hard ware to someting more professional. I have never used a Mac so Final Cut will not be an option. I was leaning toward Vegas 7.0 or Avid. So my questions:
Will vegas have the needed graphics and ability to edit a TV show?
Is Avid that difficult to learn?
What is the bare minimum requirements for an Avid system? I have read the published requirements for a 2 processor machine but the guys I am working with have used Avid on a laptop, not a fancy workstation.
