    What kinda Computer?

    Discussion started by MisPantalonesEstaEnfuega - Jul 14, 2001

    Ok I need a new computer, I need it to be able to edit video, be good for graphic design, and burn cds/dvds. What would be good? I want atleast a 40gig harddrive. Also, Mac or PC? I have a nasty ass PC right now. I am looking to pay $1500 at the most. Any Suggestions?

    Also, my friend was tellign about some kinda computers called, "Alien Wearz" or something, I was unable to find info on them, help would be nice.

    um, i highly doubt you will find a nice somewhat current powermac for $1500.......my advice would be to go with mac though.......but whatever you're more comfortable with........you're into super 8??? how are you gonna get that onto your computer?
    you should also keep in mind that there are things like Max/NATO out there(for mac).....here's a link to the future of video art.... http://www.audiovisualizers.com/toolshak/v...x/nato/nato.htm http://www.audiovisualizers.com/toolshak/v...atoworkshop.mov
    this link gives you a nice fat quicktime vid to watch....a workshop with experts......
    this shit is powerful.

    make sure you get a flux capacitor, a johnson rod, and a quantum rebigulator, with a gambletron 2000 installed with it.

    Thansk for the info and such, I'm looking into Macs, they seem to be what I am looking for.

    About the Super 8, it's pain in the ass to edit it on your computer, and too expensive. I used to do it at school. I get the Super 8 film, develope it and transfer it to VHS, then from VHS I transfer it to Mini Dv then slap the bitch in trv-11 and put it on the computer. It's cost to much to put it on VHS then on Mini DV so normally I just go over to the university and for like $3.50 an hour they let me use their film lab and editing jazz.

    I shoot on Super 8 and Mini DV.

    you think people only want to copy dvd's
    many people want a dvd burner to take advantage of the larger storage capacity of the dvd. as far as dvds being coded so you cant copy them...i wouldnt know about that....

    DVD/CD BURNER means it sa dvd and a burner in one..
    doesnt mean it burns DVD's..
    but you can uncode the DVD's but it takes about 3 gigs of your drive then you have to compress it to make it fit on a cd..
    its called divix or sumthing ..i think
    dvd ripper..
    peace
