Computer Specs for editing HD video smoothly?
on Aug 17, 2009 at 5:41:10 pm

I recently bought the Canon XHA1 camera and want to shoot and edit a project in HD. I know that my current PC wont be able to handle an hour long project in HD so i was wondering what specs i need to edit HD fluidly? I have a quote from a computer i was trying to put together. will it work well? if not, what do i need to change or add? or are there PC's specially made for HD editing? any help is appreciated.

Also, just curious but does anyone know roughly how much editing systems cost that hollywood uses? like 50 grand or what? i've always wondered about that.
