    hi all first post here

    I used to edit video's on my pc but I bought a macbook pro. I have a sony hard drive camcorder and records to mpeg files. when I try to edit on my mac I have to convert the mpeg files to dv so i can edit it with mac software. The problem i'm having is when i convert to dv the quality really diminishes. well I installed parallels and now have xp on my mbp. Do you think I will be able to install windows editing software to edit the mpeg files so i don't lose quality?

    That's what Parallels does. Allows for the installation of Windows OS to be able to run Windows programs via Parallels. You will be able to have both the Parallels window with XP open within the Mac OS environment.
