I take and edit short videos of my family for posting in the family blog. They're typically 5 minutes or so in length. Today I'm using an old Panasonic mini DV camcorder (standard def) but it's in the process of crapping out and I want to get an HD camera. I've settled on the HV20/30, which I will order this weekend once I decide which to get.
My question relates to editing. I have a four or so year old G5 tower with 1.8 dual PPC processors, running Tiger. 2Gb of RAM. My version of iMovie doesn't accommodate HD.
So I need an HD-capable editor. Happy to learn something new if it's the best choice as I think iMovie is a little buggy anyway.
- Which HD-capable editor should I get given my machine?
- Do you have any tips for output that will give me a good quality streaming video to post?
Thanks for any suggestions.
