    Final Cut Pro users here?

    That is up to you. I like to keep all files of a project together on one drive, so I can take work home. Just keep them separate from the OS drive (as mentioned above).

    Building a server

    Apache is Open Source. You get it with either Os X or your favorite LINUX distro. Building a server with LINUX has the advantage that you have more freedom on the hardware to choose from.

    new video editing hackintosh

    Yeah, CS5 on a 32 bit system is a waste of money.

    RAM Question - a little bit stupid

    I'm gonna build an X58 machine with (for a starter) 3x4GB RAM. On installation, do I have 1 RAM chip in the slot to keep it at 4GB?

    new video editing hackintosh

    I don't have any experience with Hackintosh yet (mine ist still on the drawing boards), but to my understanding the 64 bit is depending on the GPU. If I'm wrong, please don't hesitate to correct me. As you plan to build a CS5 video editing machine, you'd need a specific nVidia card to get the...

    new video editing hackintosh

    With 6GB RAM you won't get far with CS5 in video editing. You might only be able to play back a couple of seconds, then CS is rendering again, playback 2 seconds, render, playback, render.... it drives me bananas (8GB here). There are a lot of situations where you want to work with full res...

    new video editing hackintosh

    I only can talk about RAM here: If you really want to edit with CS5, add as much RAM as possible, so go with 4GB sticks and load the board to its limit. Premiere and After Effects run beautifully with 24GB. Harddrives: I assume you edit HD. Get two storage drives and build a software RAID for...

    Looking for GTX285

    I plan on using After Effects CS5 on my future Hackintosh. To get the most out of this suite, I'd need a GTX285 (the Quattros are beyond paycheck). This card seems to be discontinued, and I only have found some rather obscure sources for it. Does anybody know a reputable internet dealer (USA)...

    Performance gain and bang for buck for Video Editing?

    For CS5, I'd look into supported nVidia cards to get most out of it. http://www.adobe.com/products/premiere/systemreqs/ FCP and Motion are not yet so critical about GPU. Anything above 256MB works fine. You can even install it on systems with lesser cards.

    Did you check if your iMovie Settings are the same as your camera settings?

    i-movie

    Does it show up as a USB drive in the Finder? or in the System Profiler? Did you try a different USB cable?

    Final Cut Pro users here?

    Thanks, quattrofx. No interest in Adobe for several reasons. Right now, I stick with FCS for job related reasons. Our complete infrastructure is based on Final Cut. A change would be too expensive.

    Final Cut Pro users here?

    Thank you, that settles it for me. FW400? Won't run-off-the mill PCI FW800 cards work? Not as fast as SATA, but.... Had to do some stuff with 5400RPM FW400 drive the other day - talk about :beachball:

    Final Cut Pro users here?

    Thanks for the answer. Yeah, I heard about the trouble with FCS3. That's why I stick with version 2. Video wise, I keep it simple - nice MPEG2 (HDV and XDCAM).... GPU: I'm torn between the 9800 and the ATI 5770.

    Final Cut Pro users here?

    I'm toying with the thought of building a Hackintosh. However, my main reason to use Macs is Final Cut Studio. Is anyone here on this board using it successfully? What is the recommended GPU for Color and Motion?
