  1. Thanks Grundly, I'll check out that MoBo and that video card. Please let me know how the hakintosh goes. I might be interested in setting something like that up in the future. Vozz, I can understand not investing too much $$ now since tech changes so quickly. But I don't really want to deal with getting a new computer every year. The one I have at home I've been working on for nearly 4 years and the same with the one at work. The Mac at work can run CS6 pretty well...not so much my PC at home but it wasn't as spec'd out as my work Mac to begin with.
  2. Will a less powerful graphics card slow down that processor at all? A guy in Tom's Hardware mentioned that and I'm still waiting to see if anyone refutes it or agrees with it. - Thanks for the info so far
  3. Thanks for the response AromaKat! Which Case do you prefer? I went with that one because it was simple looking & has good reviews. I don't want a laser show in my office Which 560 card would you recommend? Is there a 240 gb SSD that you recommend over another? Can I stick with Corsair Vengeance brand but just get 32 instead? - Thanks again

  5. I apologize for being behind the curve, but What do the numbers mean 4:2:2 or 4:2:1 mean?
  6. I have a client who is going to get me some footage for later use. I was wondering which format above would be best? -Thanks
  7. I've had issues in AE with mp3s. They don't play right when I render them. The audio gets "glitchy" is some areas. I've tried a couple different output types, but maybe it's a hardware thing.
  8. Since AE doesn't handle mp3 that well I was wondering what Free software i could use to convert? I've run a google search and there are a few options, I was just wondering if anyone could recommend one of them as being much better than the others. -Thanks
  9. Thanks. I will definitely make a note of your rule of thumb, sounds good.
  10. Thanks Mousel for the info I really appreciate it. It helped clear some things up. I will have to try and find a link that explains the re-compressing back to 8bit cause that is confusing. Why make it 16 or 32 bit if it just returns back to 8, seems like it would loose the extra color info and make it pointless.
  11. I know AE has 16 & 32 bpc capability but I was wondering when to use it. It makes gradients more smooth, but what else is it good for? Also, if you use 16 & 32 bpc who can view it? Does Quicktime/AVI/WMV support that many bits? Can I play it on TVs or is it only really viable for web videos? -Thanks for any information regarding this topic, just trying to broaden me knowledge.
  12. That was really funny. I'm kinda surprised that no one has ever done anything like this B4
  13. I work for a casino and for our digital signage we have to have our movies in a certain format, File Format: MP4 Video Format: H.264 Data Rate: 6800 kbits/sec Frame Rate: 29.97 1360x768 My problem is that there is color banding with gradients. I was hoping someone might have some ideas to fix this. I've tried working in 16 & 32 bit color thinking maybe that might help, but that was a no go. -Thanks
  14. Hi, the company that I am currently looking for has a large video wall that they wish to purchase content for that are rather long. Things like: America's funniest home video clips or things like it Sports bloopers Fly Overs I was hoping a couple of you might have some links to some good sites that sell this kind of video material, since places like getty and shutterstock aren't cutting it. -Thanks
