Hi there I'm contemplating buying an HV30. Before I do, I want to make sure that I'm not creating any major editing headaches for myself. I have four questions which I hope some of you may be able to help me with. 1. Will my 2GHz 2GB C2D Mac Mini handle the data? I'll be buying a firewire equipped external drive to use as scratch and storage (tho the mini only has FW400). 2. I'm of the understanding that Final Cut Pro is the only Mac app that will deal with full-res HDV - if I'm wrong do tell me! What experience do people have using iMovie or FC Express, not just ease of workflow but quality issues? 3. What about people's experience using Sony Vegas on a Mac (booting up with Windoze) in order to get full-res HDV? Has anyone here tried that? I'm not sure whether this means I'll have to buy two external drives, one for OSX and one for MSWin, or whether there's a way to wing it with the one drive. 4. The appeal of HD to me is picture quality, but I don't have a blue-ray burner as yet. Given that I'll be distributing on standard definition DVD for the time being, any thoughts on whether down-sized HDV is better or at least no worse than SD once it's burnt to disc? I'm thinking it'll be as good as and probably a little better than SD, but again I have no concrete experience with this. I appreciate any help you can give me here - I want to do this with existing kit for now and would like to avoid making an expensive mistake with my choice of camera. Thanks, Andrew.
