Enthusiastic amateur - worked as a presales engineer for a Silicon Graphics company back in the day, so did a fair bit of animation with Alias Wavefront, then Maya.

Still do video editing on various platforms, as well as sound editing.

Sonar and Cubase are my preferred audio platforms.

I haven't tried Elements, but a quick google comes up with some plugins which appear to do 'sketch' type effects.

@John - the important bit is your software, and what type of editing you are doing. That is what will determine the answer.

You should provide more info, ideally the model of each projector or a link to the Tech specs, as the language used could mean a range of things. Also, both will be 'Max' unless stated otherwise, as marketing will want the highest value to be published.

That image doesn't really tell me very much. Is it a lightsaber type of thing that you are waving up and down?

+1 for rent. £1000 is going to get you reasonably good amateur equipment. You aren't getting anywhere near professional quality with this much cash.
