We still need to hear what RedCine's minimum system requirements will be, but in the meantime I'm trying to wrap my head around working with HD codecs in a Windows NLE.
Obviously, there is a lot of competing technology, such as many different "HD" codecs, which all muddy the water considerably. I've been working in DV on Avid Xpress Pro for about a year, and I'm now very familiar with it. But I wonder how Avid Xpress compares with products like Premiere Pro 2.0 when editing and finishing at 1080p. If I can stick with Avid Xpress, I would like to. But it seems that Adobe is getting very competitive with the HD features of Premiere. Love to hear about the pros and cons of Avid Xpress or Premiere dealing with RedCine's down-sampled 1080p from where we're sitting now. Y'all know more than I do!
