Hey guys, I'm a college student planning to get an SR macbook pro soon and i am doing some amatuer video editing -- event videos and some school videos and i plan on moving into some video podcasting. I was wondering what's a good and cheap step up from iMovie? Also, what would be a good video cam to shoot some progressive video? erm like 480p or EDTV? or erm no such camera exists? (i just know that there are interlaced and progressive all those sizes for tv's yadda yadda yadda) but im not aware of those ratings for video cams aside from the HD ones. I'm currently using this old prosumer sony from school, 3ccd thing but i think its still interlaced and sometimes the video has some distortion on the lines so yeah i kinda deduced it must be interlacing (tho i am probably wrong.) oh yeah and a decent mic too for interviews and action shots (like sport events) yeah i'm hoping for too much considering i'm on a budget but yeah any advice would greatly help. =) thanks guys.
