I'm planning on shooting a 20 minute hi-def video. My wild hope is to edit it on my 12" 1.33Ghz iBook (latest edition) using Final Cut Pro 5. Is this totally insane, or is it semi-realistic? A few points: 1)I bought a 300GB 7200RPM 8MB cache Seagate external HDD with 2 firewire and 1 usb ports. My iBook has a standard 40GB HDD, of which I have 20GB availiable. I was hoping to install FCP5 entirely on the external Seagate, but looking at the Apple site for system reqs for the FCP5, it seems you can install 1GB of the FCP5 on the iBook and the rest (10GB) can go on the external HDD... am I correct?... the wording is somewhat ambiguous. 2)I realize it depends on how much material I shoot and edit, but is about 200GB enough? 3)I'm planning on buying a 20.1" Ultrasharp 2001FP Dell external monitor and installing the spanning hack - is this usable for editing? Someone on Macrumors claimed you can't use LCDs for editing due to ghosting, color and resolution issues, and CRTs are recommended... true/false? 4)Looking at the system reqs for FCP5, it seems my iBook processor is ok, as is memory (1.5GB RAM), but I'm worried by my video card... is that going to be a problem trying to drive the 20.1 inch monitor in editing film? So, given my setup, is the iBook too feeble? Is there any hardware/software I should be considering in addition? Anyone with first hand experience editing on a similar system - what's your take? TIA!
