I've been doing some reading lately on the net concerning video editing with computers. I bought my first Mac, (a PowerMac G4 1250 mini tower 1.25 processor), a couple of months ago. I bought with it a software called "Final Cut Express". I've been learning how to use it these past months and I must say I've been very happy with it, (and the Mac's), performance. I'm new to Macs and before, I originally got into video editing using my pcs. For some reason and I don't know why, my pcs have not done a very good job at video editing. Whenever I tried putting any transitions or effects, it caused my video to drop frames and look jerky. Not long before I bought my Mac, I had been hearing from more than one source that Macs were made for video editing, that they excelled in graphics and so on. I was wondering if anyone out there has had the same experience I had, where they were dissatisfied with their pc's performance at video editing and turned to Macs for this reason. I've read a lot of people's posts in other forums and their opinions are either on one side of the fence or the other on this issue. My own opinion is made up on this subject, and I've decided that I'll only use my Mac for video editing from now on. An additional question: how does anyone rate Final Cut Express with Final Cut Pro? I like Final Cut Express, but would it be worth the extra money to invest in FCP? Thanks for any replies. Macster12.
