I'm looking to get into doing some post-production video work. I'm greener than green and am in the research phase right now so pardon my ignorance with jargon and knowledge on the subject..
I'm looking to store 300+ hours of video to be edited (eventually). I'm vaguely familiar with RAID hard drives. Would this be the way to go for what I have in mind? In order to have a backup, would I need 2 of these or are there 2 separate drives incorporated into the one unit?
Is there a 'post-video production for Dummies' book or video series for a novice?
Software: I'm thinking of Cyberlink's 'Power Director'.:
Hardware: ??? Not sure what desktop and laptop would be beneficial.
Any advise for someone looking to start a side business of video restoration, editing, etc... is appreciated.
