I am planning on producing half hour videos using Adobe After Effects 4.0
Currently I have a Duron 750mhz. 286 RAM and a ATI Radeon 32MB video card with S-Video out.
Now here's my question or questions.
1) For rendering these half hour videos with Adobe Effects wich components will I have to upgrade to make rendering go a lot faster. Currently it takes me more than 12 hours.
2)Wich video cards are good for video editing work with video in and out for less than $300. I already know about the ATI ALL in WONDER. Just want to know if there's anything else that's better or equivelent.
3) Video compression? Which one? I don't mind it being too blocky but I want the colors to be there. Currently I found that
selecting the Cinepak Codec by Radius works the the fastest and isn't to pixulated except for the colors, It looks blochy.
Any other copressions that will work beter?
