    I am in the midst of researching a video editing solution for here at work and so far the Matrox RT-2500 package looks very good.

    We need semi-professional tools for editing (Matrox includes Adobe Premiere 6.0 and some real-time plugins)

    It needs to be able to capture DV and Analog (The Matrox has Analog capture via the breakout box)

    Reasonably priced (lowest for The Matrox is $740 on PriceWatch

    It must work on Win 2000 (current corporate OS)

    The only disadvantage I see are:

    Adobe Premiere is King-Shit as far as editing is concerned, but it isn't exactly easy to use. I know Premiere pretty well, but I have to be able to teach other people how to use it.

    It requires a separate 3D graphics card

    Anybody have any insight?

    It got a pretty good review in the new issue of DV magazine. Check it out, it's got a black cover with a cover story on Real Time DV cards. The Canopus DV Raptor appears to be the favorite, and is cheaper
