I sound like some of the questions I get on YouTube, I realize. Very general question without a lot of information, but here's my thinking. I've been a Windows guy since 1993 and have struggled through the various versions along with everybody else. In my profession, I will always be using Windows machines, however much longer that involves? Anyway, I'm looking at upgrading my camcorder before too long for my YouTube videos. Along with that, if I go HD, which I will, I'll need to upgrade computers, external hard drive storage devices we use for backups and for master storage, etc, as well as video editing software. The camera does fine, but we really need to upgrade everything before too long. The drives are about full, computers aged, and we're still using Windows Movie Maker. I'm thinking that if it made sense that it might just be a good time to go Mac with all of it. I know that Macs excel in the area of video and graphics. I know it involves a bit more money generally ( I was a Mac guy originally in the early '80s.), but other than that, do you think it might be a good move? I'm wondering if compatibility is still as much an issue as it once was. Would we be able to read our existing drives of videos if we switched to Mac? Guess we'd have to convert them to Quicktime? Just looking for opinions before I begin shopping. Thanks for any input. Maybe I'll get lucky and some of my viewers / subscribers are computer nerds, too! ;-) Thanks, Hickok45 Wanna kill these ads?
