Whatever games he wants to play. His main deal is old Bionicle games, but he’s branched into obscure Japanese and Korean visual novels, Control, Ace Attorney spin-offs, and the World’s Hardest Game.
Yeah, in video editing class we had special servers to handle 4K speeds, otherwise we would be bogging down our computers something fierce. I wouldn’t risk shooting 4K unless I was sure my editing hardware could handle the strain.
Technically it’s easier to video edit on a Mac. The issue I think is not so much video but audio editing, since iTunes is slightly more powerful on Mac than Windows, and Macs have access to GarageBand and ProTools. I have edited video on both Mac and Windows, so the latter is pull-off-able. You just need to install the right software.
You’ll need to pay the Adobe overlords and install Premiere Pro, which you can install on Windows (get the student discount), and you’ll probably want to install Audacity (free) which will help with the sound editing. Both of these can be installed on Windows. If you’re stuck on Windows, try to take on tasks that don’t involve sound as much, because otherwise your workflow will become unintelligible to your Mac-using co-workers. You may also need Adobe Aftereffects as well, but I would start with learning the ropes of Premiere first before diving into that more complex program.
Happy video editing to you.
