Jim et al.

It did not occur to me that newer cameras would allow you to copy the digital information from the computer back to digital tape, but it seems obvious that this is in fact the case. I have never been directly involved in the video production side in our office, so by all means, listen to someone who has specific experience. Once the master is made, taking it from digital tape to VHS is trivial. There you go. This is assuming that the output quality of the editing software is sufficiently good for your tape.

Moral of the story: you probably won't go wrong either way, but the consensus leans towards Mac.

Yup. Firewire pretty much rocks. Thanks again to APPLE for inventing it.

You can produce a new promo tape at your kitchen table, completely digitally, with a DV camera ($600-700) and an iMac (the classic ones are around $700) for under $1500. And then you have the tools to make a new tape whenver it strikes your fancy to do so.

This was not possible three years ago.

It's a great time to be alive.

Crikey Danny, it only took you four months to reply to my post, rant as you usually do and then call me a Moron. And you even edited your reply! By the way, your photo is really beautiful.

Anyway, back to the topic. Since it's getting a little technical in here and as I'm a Mac Addict I thought I'd lighten things up a bit:

Windows XP is an obstacle course,
Microsoft Word is a trojan horse,
Internet Explorer crashes every day,
"Where do you want to go today?"
The PocketPC and XBox both crash,
Stupid and slow but still fun to smash,
DOS is just buggy, Windows as well,
If you're data get's lost then welcome to hell!
Intels get by with a half-assed design,
But Motorola processors really do fine,
Microsoft Works is anything but,
Even Notepad gives you a pain in your gut.
The Microsoft website is pretty much crap,
Watch out dumb user, your connection is tapped.
So really now guys, I would like to know,
How many more flaws will it take to show,
and to give the public a wake-up call,
in order to see they don't need PCs...
...at all."

It's off topic, and in response to an older post, but it's funny...

Zoltan, are you aware of what happens to your website when viewed full screen at 1400x1050? You should fix that, as it is less than "Adequate"

Actually, I'd say it was you on the rant. My original post actually agreed with most of your original post, but you saw my name and for some reason had to act like a brainless twat. That's your problem. I don't know you from a hole in the wall but some where in my sorted past I must have done something to offend you grievously. I don't know what else could cause you to act like such a nitwit. I'd apologize but I find you funny.

I'd also like to point out you called me stupid about 4 months before I called you a moron hmm... As for you mention of my picture, yeah, all this and I'm good lookin' too [img]wink.gif[/img]

You have a good one Lance and when you get your head to pop out of your ass let me buy you a beer.

No hard feelings ya' moron [img]smile.gif[/img]

Best,

Dan-

P.S. I edited this post too..

For those , like me who have been waiting for something to compete with the microsoft browser on their mac, which was the fastest up till now.
i suggest safari, free from the mac website, faster (40% is the statement)
only catch is it only runs on the latest OSX.
Still it only took me moments before I happily converted. (it transfers your bookmarks don't worry)

Two words: Video editing.
One answer: Mac
ROCK solid operating system. My old PC used to crash daily. My Mac has crashed once. ONCE! I TRY to make it crash! I don't even run virus software! I put it out in the rain. That's right. I open 7 different programs simultaneously. Two copies of MS word. Then I start a big download. Really it's good. Trust me.
I'd piss on my PC but it'd break, so I keep it as a back up. I switched, and I'll never go back.
If you use more than one language on your PC, well then... FORGET the PC. Oh sure there will be problems, it's not a perfect world. But you will thank me.
