Awesome dude, I just recently got into video editing and currently I'm downloading Premiere since I don't have the dough to dish out. I would get Final Cut Pro if only I had a Mac.

Well, the newest version of Adobe Premiere, 6.5 to be exact, certainly caught my eye. Background rendering would be a great help in increasing work output due to the fact that it may cut down actual rendering time by around 20%. That's a very substantial amount to DV Editors like me.

The next thing would be Logic Platinum 5 which would be a great support software/driver for Audio in DV's. Sonic Foundry's Sound Forge 6.0 is a audio creation tool, but it seems that Emagic's music production system would be very useful in incorporating music into DV's. I'd try Final Cut Pro, but I don't think I'll be getting myself a Mac in the near future. I wonder if VX2 got any demo softwares.

As for the DV tools, I was least interested in the 42-inch plasma monitor due to the fact that the price may be too high for me, and I don't find much use for it except viewing DVD's. VeG, were you able to find out the actual dpi of the viewing monitor?

The camera certainly took my breath away though. 530 lines of horizontal reso isn't a joke and would very much help amateur editors in creating fabulous home-made movies. The 48x Digital zoom isn't bad either, especially if the zoom control was made more sensitive for smoother zoom in/out. I think I'll look into it more.

Thanks for the info break VX2 and Entity! ^^:

Yes background rendering technology was a major keypoint for Pinnacle and Adobe in this year's expo. Both demonstrated it but it seemed as if Adobe had the upper hand with faster times and less noticeable lag while it rendered. A few actions in adobe and it completed whereas in edition you could go and come back and still find it rendering. This could be CPU dependent though.

Logic was a complete breath taking program. The demo's on it were excelent and the quality was quite nice for something done on the fly. The key is the connection box they had on display with it. I take it there's quite a bit of processing with the signal in there before it hits the mac for output. I did manage to get my hands on some of the softwares ^^ After Effects 5.5 was nice. 6.5 of Premiere wasn't ready to roll out to demo as of the expo though. It seemed as if they were having some issues with it.

How could you not be interested in a 42" plasma monitor? The screen was actually quite nice compared to some of the smaller screens they had on display. I'd say it was around .24 .26 using the digital signal. Very sharp indeed.

The 530 was quite nice to see. They had it setup on their desktops to get the feedback on. Honestly it was a fun item to try out. The Zoom did need some work although the rep's kept insisting that the models up from it had this corrected. Although you think they would have it corrected on all versions. alas I'd make due with it ^^;

Glad to see you're getting into DV as well KFC there's quite a big world ahead of you if you can progress into it. Premiere is an excelent program to get started with though so I must commend you on your choice.

I just got Premiere on the computer like ten minutes ago and I know it's gunna take time to get to learn it but it's gunna be well worth it, I can tell. Once I get this down pat and get a website up then Jackbutt is goin Worldwide.

I guess Adobe still has the advantage with respect to DV Softwares. Pinnacle has received high respects from a considerable amount of companies when it came to their hardware though. Fortunately, those two are the target software + hardware combo in the near future for my business.

Issues? Hmm.. Well, it has been quite a long time now, and the demo is available for download, except that their site is having some problems as of this moment.

Very sharp alright, and I'm really interested in the concept of the hardware. The problem, in my case, would be the cost of the monitor. The price would ultimately be increased by 50% of its original once it gets onto our shores.

Yes KFC. The DV world is still expanding, especially when it pertains to DV Editing. Premiere is a great choice, and when you think you've adapted to its controls pretty well, try additional edits using Adobe AfterEffects. Good luck!
