Laptop requirements for Sony Vegas?

Postby DeanSenjuSymons » Sat Sep 05, 2015 11:41 am

Hi, I'm a total noob to video editing but I've decided to take the dive in making AMVs, but my funds are limited. I'll be using Sony Vegas 11, if you would recommend something else then please share and explain the advantages for me? It seems the first thing I should do is optimize my PC before installing the software and getting things moving. I'm not sure what is required of my PC, I have an Acer Latop with Intel Core i7-451OU, NVIDIA GeForce 840M with 2 GB dedicated VRAM, 4GB DDR3L Memory, 1000GB HDD. I don't really know what any of that means but I'm trying to learn.. is this sufficient? Also if anybody could provide some explanations of other specs I should be checking that would be great. Also I'm on Windows 8.1.. Thanks for any responses :)

It's more than enough for most video editing programs :) You should be fine.
Still better than that MMO.

Graphical Processing Unit. It's your Graphics card.
