Picked up the HV20 to capture the birth of our first child (son) in all it's HD glory. Then I realized I'd need some editing software to capture and edit the video properly.
Did some research and picked up Pinnacle Studio 11 for ease of HDV editing and such. Got it home and realize my graphics card is too old and busted to edit HDV (64MB memory.) I'm taping in HD, then editing and creating in SD.
So, either I buy a new laptop with better processor and video card - or -
I buy a different editing program.
RAM - 1.5GB
Video Card - Busted
Am I stuck with the whole new laptop direction?
