I think i posted this in the wrong topic prior to this, I appologize
I have a project that im working on thats being transfered from 35mm in about 30 to 60 days.
From what I think i understand, my copy of adobe Premiere Pro isnt going to be able to do anything with digibeta, so i'm prepared to get a copy of Avid for editing. Im going to be with the digibeta deck for 1 week and ill have an SDI card to connect from my computer to the deck.
The questions; how does editing on digibeta work? with systems like premiere, the files are small enough to fit on the hard drive while you edit, and then 'layed back' to whatever i want it to be on.
When i run avid will it store the uncommpressed video to the computer drive and then layback? This is one of the most improtant questions for me. I am tasked with adding effects in another program and then inserting it into the scene. Will i be able to work with the files without comprssing them below the digibeta quality?
If my computer is to handle these uncompressed files which are probably in the high gig range, what type of system should i build to run avid on?
Sorry about the ignorance, thank you for the replys in advance.
