Hey everyone, I'm just starting as a graphic designer/media producer at a local cable company. It's about time to let them know what equipment I will need, and I thought you may be able to enlighten me a little bit. I will be sharing the graphic design work with another co-worker, but I am the sole video and motion graphic guy in my department and will need to output commercials and other video work. So far all I know is I'm working on a mac pro with no exceptions. I will be using Final Cut Pro and After Effects on a regular basis, and hopefully learn Cinema 4D. While I need to get the best out there, as it will probably be 4 or 5 years before I can upgrade again, I also don't want to go completely overboard and piss off my new employer. For starters, I'll probably just get the Quad Mac Pro rather than the 8-core, unless you guys think it's necessary. I will also need a DVCPro deck, but again, not too expensive. Any suggestions would be very appreciated, especially with hardware (graphics cards and capture cards and such), that's where I don't know so much. Thanks!
