I would appreciate some suggestions for working with Premier. At the time I'm using a MBP 13 i5 8gb ram, Canon HV 40 and Premier Pro 5.5. What are the limitations with this set up? Would I want work with native resolution? I'm not sure at what point does the size of the file or work load becomes a limitation? For example would it be reasonable to use my MBP and an external drive if I'm making a documentary? Apparently Premier doesn't have the prores codac. It can use Avid DNX yet there would be compromise is video quality for some formats. At what point would that be a limitation? I also have access to some audio equipment. What is the first thing you would improve on this set up? Is it a huge mismatch? I could add another camera/computer in the future. Would it be too limited for local broadcast HD, making a HD DVD for sale, or getting paid for events or a commercial? (I didn't buy it for this but just trying to get a better understanding of the limitations, which I'm hoping is me.) Should I consider FCP X instead? Any advice would be appreciated.
