Hello to all, thanks for having a forum and for looking at my post.
I am an absolute beginner in video editing and in the mac world. Been away from apple since the IIc+ of the early 90s. My job requires me to learn this stuff for a very specific application so looking for some advice on where to get some tutorials that would apply to me.
We use a ubiquiti security camera system to record training events. This system requires us to us a PC as the control station. Each camera creates video in 10 min blocks in its own folder. An event typically creates 1-4 gig of data.
I need to move the data from PC to MACbook pro fast and with out corruption. A cable being ideal or being able to move a hard drive from one system to the other.
I did lots of searches and i find lots of info on using the cloud to do it or a direct wireless connection, lots of info on doing a one time move from a pc to a mac, but i need to do this frequently and just the video data i want to move.
Once moved i will just be doing basic editing. Removing dead air, cleaning up the look. Not doing a pro job, at least until i can provide the above product fast and good.
Thank you for looking and for having a place to look for answers.
For the file transfer I purchased a 1 TB SSD external drive per kit, to prevent any possible virus issues, even though it is a closed system. We have never had an event that would require more data than that and if that arises ill do 2 transfers until we upgrade drives.
For the basic editing training im using youtube for now but looking for a more organized approach to learning it.
