    CS 6 Video Editing System

    VideoShui Level 1

      Hi All,


      The advice on selecting hardware for video editing in CS 6 on this forum is excellent. Many thanks to all those who have taken the time to post!


      Although I am a little overwhelmed, I have tried to incorporate as much of the advice as possible and check the hardware reviews. I am relatively new to video editing and the type of work I will need to do is HD, but primarily for the internet or DVD.


      I would appreciate it if anyone could take a look at the proposed build from AVA which costs about $2665 plus shipping.

      Thank you!
