    Well, any type of compression for DVD will degrade the image and make it not look nearly as good as it did at full res in FCP. Mpeg 2 is a highly compressed format. To maintain highest quality your best bet is output to tape. But, if you need DVDs, then you are going about it the best way you can.

    I am sure someone familiar with Compressor will give you the appropriate settings for teh best quality possible.

    24P…any camera or deck will do. Heck even with 24 PA any camera or dek will do (AFAIK). All you need to do for 24P is digitize using the DV/NTSC easy setup. 24P runs at 29.97.

    24PA runs at 23.98, and that needs to be captured using the Advanced Pulldown option…but can still be played out of any camera or deck that plays back DVCAM.

    When you look in the manual index under NESTING, it should point you to pages and pages of information.

    What nesting does is take you 3 layers of video, 8 layers of audio, 500 cut sequence and makes in into one large clip. Basically.

    More RAM would definately help. Another 512 MB should suffice.

    And an external firewire drive to capture to is essential. Check out Seagate and Hitachi externals, for the are the best. I myself have a couple CobraPro drives that have been workhorses for 3 years.

    I am a Union editor in Los Angeles, and the Union base scale here is $2365.00 per week, with lower scale for smaller budget productions (they go as low as $1585.00). I have worked on productions both union and non-union that ranged from $1500 (low on the totem pole cable networks) to $3000 (network reality TV, Union Narrative TV) per week.

    But, I am in Los Angeles and this is THE market…plus costs out here are high.

    What you need to do is fine out what the median is for your area.

    Oh…and the edit system has NOTHING TO DO with your rate. They are hiring you for your editing ability, not for your skill with an edit system.
