I am building a DYI NLE system for the company I work for and I just wanted to get some feedback on my plan.
For Video Editing Machine I am going to go with a HP xw4300 Workstation
I have yet to decide on what software I am going to use for editing.
The other part of my project is I have 2 separate rooms that I will be doing recording in. I was thinking the best solution for this would be to do the following: use the Sony DCR VX2100 Camera I already have and connect it to a Firestore FS-4 hard drive and then bring the drive back to the the Video Editing workstation PC. One I have this fully tested I would purchase an additional Camera and Firestore drive.
Here are my questions...
What video editing software should I use my budget for the software is $1500 to $2000. The second question is what video capture card/is recomended?
From what I understand is that I can connect the Firestore drive to any PC and view the video as long as the proper codecs/software are installed to view the video.
