As I am new to all this I could not quite understand that the Probox2 ex has only a micro chip input and not the SDXC input. that would appear to be a shame because if it did then I could simply take the SDXC chip out of the AX100 and put it in the Probox2 ex. Is there a way round that.?
Can I use 32gb SDHC formatted to exfat for recording in 4K with the AX100?.
On another note and maybe another forum,,, I am trying to decide whether the Pinnacle Studio 18 (recently just released) which I have ordered as an upgrade (I have been using the studio 16) is as good as or better that the Power Director 13. Any one out there with advice.
John as I mentioned , I have been using Pinnacle for a long time. PD is not that much different, the learning curve is not that steep.
One plus in my mind was that 64 bit operation was build from the ground up while in P it was added just recently. Before you decide download PD for a 30 day test drive to get a feel for it. I did in fact, before buying download about 6 other editors and found the PD to be the all around best for my use. I usually keep my videos simple, a few transitions, title and on occasion music using Smart Sound.SS was in fact used with early P editors but for some reason abandoned. I downloaded SS oriental music for our China Video done with the AX100 and PD12.
And regardless what you buy it must have proxy editing
, that is all editing of 4K or HD is done in SD, only the finished version is using the 4K or HD original video. It did not see any mention of that in P18.
Here are parts of the 4K video, disregard the heavy youtube compression and lack of sunshine.
For the ProBox you could use a SD to USB adapter that should work ok. That is what I do when I take video samples to Best Buy for testing.
