It sucks that I buy this camera and then feel like I need a new computer to take advantage of it.
It never ends. Just wait until you decide you want a a third party plug in. You go to install said plug in but you realize you have to upgrade your OS.
Wait now that you've updated your OS now your main editing software starts crashing. Fuck. But you really want this plug in. Soooooo you make your system dual boot. Oh fuck. Now you need more hard drive space. Well at least hard drives are cheap. Now you're spending more time
tweaking your rig then editing on the fucking thing.
It's always something.
So you finally cut the thing on your computer monitor and it's awesome. You take it your buddies house who has a sweet projector and you see all these tiny details you mised on your 21" LCD at home. Go home. Crop out the gapers in the background only you can see. Next thing you know you're painting out the chair life cables above your head. A week later it's perfect. You take it back to your buddies house and he's like 'dude bro. Love the new music'
The music never changed and he doesn't even care that you spent 27 hours painting out lift cables. So you set your edit rig on fire. Good riddance!
