This kind of data is actually remarkably hard to come by. There are a few industry reports available for thousands of dollars, but the best free resource I could find when I was searching was an informal poll that Dave Dugdale did. It was an imperfect test by his own admission because it allowed both voting up and voting down, but it gives at least some ...
I think the traditional knowledge is that if you want to be an editor, then you should know how to drive all 3 of the major programs (Avid, Final Cut Studio, and Premiere), and maybe some of the less mainstream broadcast editing and finishing systems (e.g. Smoke). You should probably know a handful of specialized audio programs too. Lucky for you, the ...
If you're not impressed with X then I'd suggest going back to version 7. Learning your way around a new program will be a pain in the arse. I'm not sure how professionally you work but if you can be bothered, Avid is a great program once you get to know it. Otherwise, man, I'd probably just get used to FCPX.
This is likely due to the video codec that you are using. First, an explanation of terms is required: WMV is a container format. These can contain one or more video or audio streams - with video this is normally one video & one audio stream; and these are encoded with various codecs (coder/decoder). I'm not very familiar with the WMV format - for editing ...
If you are in the market to rethink your workflow, now is a good time to look at Adobe's lineup. If you want to capture to a computer, check out the OnLocation application in the Production Suite. The fact that you can edit while you render in CS5... and that Premiere keeps up just fine... it's beautiful. Avid is great when it works. I've never had FCP or ...
In the end I have discovered what the problem was here, to an extent, and thanks to a post on the BMXlib forum: By changing the option in raw2bmx from --vc3_1080p_1238 to simply --vc3, this forced raw2bmx to look at the data to determine what video format it was - and it turns out that in this case, it wasn't vc3_1080p_1238.
Simply update your Cineform installation and maybe also Premiere, this was a bug with Cineform and got fixed about 2 years ago.
Your best bet for transferring any type of media file will be to zip it along with any session files/data first to preserve the file types. Once you zip your files you can use any external hard drive to make the transfer from one machine to another.
You want to use VirtualDub to convert your FRAPS files. Just drag the clip into the window, select video from the top menu -> compression. Change the codec to Avid AVI Codec 2.0d2 and then configure it to your desired resolution. BAM! The outputted files should work. You can also try MediaCoder and XVid
