Video Editing - Camera: I run the Sony HDR-XR520E, normally with the only wide lense available for this model.     My next camera shall have manual controls and I have ambitions of going SLR soon. I don't look forward to that move as I know nothing about shooting with an SLR. Also I fear that the cost of glass will pull me under :-)

Anyone with more knowledge than me on this subject - please correct me if I am wrong here! I expect there to be a lot of people out there having issues editing their AVCHD files from their HD cam. That is because it is not especially suitable for editing. It is a shooting format. It shoots a number of key frames (I-frame), then some P/B frames that captures differences from the key frame. I recommend to convert to AVI (Or Mov if you are on a Mac) using Cineform NeoScene before editing...

After shooting I unload the AVCHD to my laptop. From there I convert my AVCHD to High Quality AVI with the  Cineform NeoScene software. The AVCHD is then moved to my NAS for permanent storage while I edit in Sony Vegas Pro using the AVI files. The video is mostly coded to MP4 using Sony AVC, 1920x1080, 10 000 000bps. The MP4 final file is then uploaded to my NAS and www.vimeo.com/rakkenes. Then it is shared to all my Google+ friends, resulting in it being seen by 5 persons. Viral Stuff!

This is a very good product for any video amateur. Smooth wheel, buttons can be customized to any possible shortcut, pre-sets available for a huge range of products and most important - it costs under 90 USD. You don't know it yet but you want this one! I only use the jog knob and 5 of the buttons (Mark event left and right, split cut, delete marked cut and play movie). My editing speed went straight through the roof after starting using it...

Video Editing - NAS Storage. This is the NAS used for raw-file storage. It is running 5 x 2TB discs in Raid-5. The build quality is great and the user interface is web-based and, believe it or not, very, very smooth. I can recommend this box!

Video Editing - My Computer: My Dell Studio XPS Laptop 1645, 8GB Memory, i7 Processor & SSD disc is used for editing. I will probably move over to a stationairy PC soon as I would like GPU based rendering as supported in Sony Vegas Pro 11. Upgrading with a new and powerful i7 based laptop is simply to costly. In general I have nothing bad to say about this box, but I miss Asus. The quality difference is there somewhere...

Dell Studio XPS Laptop 16 is the ultimate experience. Look no further for superior laptop power and design

Video Editing - My Videos: I post my videos on www.vimeo.com/rakkenes but most are closed for friends and family    I normally make 3-5 minute videos of spesific family related events. I cut to music as I do not have time to edit with natural sound. I like to keep my videos fast as I tend to get bored by movies going nowhere.

Hi There, I am a video-amateur utilizing Vimeo to share good moments with family and friends.

Video Editing - Effects: I recently took some NewBlue products into use. I use Motion Effects, Motion Blends and NewBlueFX Titler Pro. Not much experience with the products yet as video editing time is very limited these days...

Video Editing - Useful Software: Cineform NeoScene is used to convert my AVCHD into really good quality AVI. Don't waste time on poor quality converting by lousy freeware. This one is worth every dollar! Cineform is licensed to one computer installation, meaning that  you have to get activation codes each time you re-install. Note to self: Remember to deactivate the install in case re-install is needed!
