Looking for some advice. This may have been asked before, but not under these circumstances. I am going to start getting a little into film editing (and the film industry in general). I currently have a mid-2007 black macbook (2.14 GHz C2D, upgraded to 2GB RAM) and I want to get started on Final Cut Pro. I'm guessing I will need to upgrade to a MBP or iMAC for this, so I just had a few questions. I am debating on getting one now (MBP) or waiting for the next refresh (want it but don't necessarily NEED it right no). But between this time, will my current black macbook setup support FCP, or will it run unbelievably slow? Or should I just continue with iMovie for now ('08)? Also, I will be moving out to Los Angeles from Philadelphia at the end of next summer to start working in film, most likely production assistant work at first (which a lot of times requires you to have your own laptop). If I didn't think I would need something portable I would definately go with an iMAC, but I don't think that is the case, especially with a big move coming. Any advice on what to do, what to wait for, and what type of seteup would be best for FCP? Also, any advice for the Los Angeles move would be appreciated as well! Also, I'm using a Canon HV40 currently, connecting with a firewire. (Getting a JAG35SE Depth of Field adapter next week). Not sure if any of that will change any answers. Thanks!
