Hi all, I'm currently editing (no rendering or encoding) 1080i HDV from both a Sony HVR-A1E and a Canon HV30... on a PowerBook G4 with 1.67 cpu and 1.5GB of RAM. I can cut and arrange footage quite happily on this machine, I have an 8-Core Mac Pro at work for the heavy work. Now, I'm still working on the PowerBook's 15" display. I was hoping to purchase a 24" monitor to aid my home workflow. I know the PowerBook can output to a 30" Apple Cinema display, but can it also power a display (24") and the HDV content running on the new display? The capture scratch, is running on a 500GB LaCie with FW800 Hope this is clear?
