** I've lived in the real world enough, we're all here because we aint
all there **
I am turning one of my Suse boxes into a video editing-movie/dvd
creating box.. at least that is the current plan
I am looking for information about the best semi pro sound cards you
might recomend, along w/ "if money is no object" recomendations. (
Might as well have an idea how high the bar is . IT helps purchasing
decisions in a peicemeal setup sometimes.
The box we are building upon is a "purpose built polywell, which has
been rebuilt by them several times, now Athlon 1700 ( xp) although I
expect it wont belong before the asus board gets tossed for soemthing
that could handle several athlons.
Got 1.5gig ram on it... presently an nvidia video card which is
already for the bin , I am sort of looking at a topline ati or matrox ,
since the video cards I tend to hand me rounds when new boxes come in
w/ onboard chips etc..
I am still investigating the capture card situation .. prefer to spend
my money on quality especially something that has a Linux positive
company rather than the usual types who are willling to take you money
but don't care to let anyone know they might even *work* in a linux
box. Partially their laziness, and the fact that there is still a
heavy MS thumb on the hardware folks. One hopes they are begining to
see the light , tho.
Sound , however is really important... anyone ever been around film,
animation , anything knows how sound can really help move a story
along, and add a lot to a picture. IF you don't believe it, rent a dvd
of jaws, and turn your lights out and the sound up.. at least til the
dialog take over the picture. W/o that theme and the sound editing, it
was a really average summer flick. Might even go so far as to say
I'm not overly worried about the price of the equipment being the
lowest posible bidder, looking more for the middle range ( which is why
, I guess I asked also about proces of the top kit... Best to know what
the setup is going to take when I get round to building a couple of
these things that by then I'd want ( need) to have top level stuff on.

it's just an afterthought; okay ? : SYSTEM ERROR: Place sacrifice at keyboard to continue....
