    Do apps like Boris FX and title motion handle the .m2t files fine?
    I think it will within Edius?
    Are you just going to use it as transitions or filters as well? Maybe scrubbing in the Boris window will be a bit sluggish.

    I just finished editing a three-camera HDV project on a similar laptop using external hard drives, and while it was a pain at times I got through it. The biggest problem was trying to use the multicam feature, which was too sluggish to do much under these conditions.

    Edius could really use a "graceful degradation" feature like Sony Vegas or Final Cut Pro, in which editing can continue with reduced preview quality instead of just grinding to a halt trying to display full quality.

    I think you can do one or two layers (max) on that laptop...give it a try, find some .m2t files off the web and load it up in Edius 4 demo and see how it goes. m2t files are VERY processor intensive, so not even a Quad Core like mine will save it from being a pain.

    Hey Dave,

    I'll be capturing and doing some editing with my laptop:

    ASUS S96S Santa Rosa platform
    Core 2 Duo T7500 2.2GHz 4MB 800 FSB
    2GB DDR2 667 RAM
    80GB SATA 7200RPM system

    The majority of the editing will be on a new desktop that I'll build in the next couple of weeks. I'm open to suggestions on it.

    Thanks!
    Brad

    Anyone editing .m2t files?

    I'm about to start editing a project that will require capturing around 55 hours of footage. Obviously .m2t files would save me a ton of space. Has anyone edited any big projects with .m2t instead of HQ? Anything I should watch out for?

    Thanks!
