Video Editing PC

The amazing guide on how to Buil your own video editing PC. The leaps and bounds taken by technology have ensured that owning a digital camera and digital camcorder can enable one edit their own home videos. To ensure that your computer can handle complex video editing proceed as follows:

How To Configure Your Own Video Editing PC

  • Buy a Central Processing Unit ( CPU ) that is relatively fast. Onto the CPU affix a CPU fan, the fan prevents the CPU from overheating which would cause it to crush. To your CPU add a motherboard; preferably get one that has Intel chip sets for a P4 system.
  • Get a video card with a fast on board memory. For multiple tasks, try to get a NVIDIA Video card that can support up to three video outputs.

  • Add hard drives keeping in mind that in video editing it is solely recommended that one drive be used for one function, for instance dedicate one drive for recording videos and another drive for downloading videos. Experts do recommend a 7,200 rpm drive for this sort of venture.
  • Add a monitor. You should use a CRT monitor as opposed to an LCD monitor because CRT captures a higher resolution of the images pixels, CRT'S also refresh faster than LCD'S.

  • For high quality sound, go beyond the on board sound provided by your computer and get a sound card which improves the quality of your video editing.

  • Keeping in mind that the focus of your mission is to edit video's, get a DVD writer and preferably those that hold 4.7 gigabytes per disc. Encase the hardware in a hard cover and then proceed to software issues.

For software there are two requirements i.e. load your operating system, e.g. windows XP and your video editing software e.g. power editor. All the best.
