I am looking at purchasing a new laptop to be used with Video Editing. I am currently using a P4 2.4 Ghz desktop with a Pinnacle Pro-One and Adobe Premiere 6.5. I am planning on getting a Hyperthreaded 3.0 Ghz laptop with 512 Mb. of Ram. Now I am just trying to decide which video editing software to go with. I am a student so I can get Avid Express for the student price of $400. At the moment all that I do is make photo montages. My biggest concern is the number of transitions. I need A LOT! Which program is going to off me the best and quickest solution for making photo montages? I don't really need the analog out of the pro one anymore as everything goes to a DVD first before I make VHS copies.
Thanks for your time,
