i do wedding videos with a couple of 5d's. I currently have a toshiba laptop with 8g of ram, and sony vegas. I don't want to even get into my sony vegas bugs, but i have to convert all my footave from mov (what they come from off my 5d) to avi for sony vegas to run properly without errors. something that takes a few hours to do with all my clips. I heard that an imac with final cut pro you can just take them straight from a 5d, 7d, or 60 d in mov format and do your project and render it into mp4 without converting to avi. is this true? if so i think the cash is worth it. These sony vegas errors are costing me HOURS per project!!
