. I do a lot of HD video editing and encoding with FCP, Compressor, QT Pro, and Combustion. I am not real pleased my processing speed. I've got one 300GB hard drive dedicated strictly for video editing. I've got my scratch disks setup correctly. But it is still not as fast as I would like. I am sure it will help greatly when the above applications become 64-bit. In the mean time, would a SSD or VelociRaptor drive speed up my video editing? .
