    Video and Audio Editing on the same station

    timthompsonguitar Level 1

      I have an i7 920 with 5 hard drives. I am editing a concert where the audio was recorded separate. At present I have audio and video on different computers. I's a hassel going back and forth. Video machine is on windows 7 pro. Audio is still on an XP machine. I guess I could network them so I don't hose anything. I am using CS5 on the video, and Sonar 8.5 producer on the audio. My question:


      - Any thoughts about installing sonar on the video editing machine so I'm doing ALL of my editing on one machine. That way, if I need to tweak the audio in sonar, I can do it without moving to the other machine. All my output files are on the same machine.


      BTW, I have 24 gigs of ram I'll be installing today. So I think I'll be okay.
