    How well does PE7 cope with mpeg (standard DV)?

    Geoff Alexander

      The choice of consumer level camcorder formats is now almost exclusively a hard drive or memory card rather than mini dv.

      I routinely edit HDV with PE7 but for the needs of the children I teach, I need only standard DV quality. My problem is that I know when comparing HDV and AVCHD the latter needs substantially more processing power.

       

      What I want to know is, when editing the mpeg format from the new generation of solid state or hard drive camcorders, how does the demand on the processor compare with footage edited from AVI (mini DV) format?
