CoasterDynamix at 60p:24p

I thought it would be cool to slow down my CoasterDynamix coaster by shooting overcranked at 60 framers per second. It did slow it down a bit, but I probably should have also made the shutter speed faster.

I was surprised to see that my laptop could actually edit the video. My desktop can't because Avid chokes constantly on an AMD processor, which is lame. I don't know if the laptop can handle 1080/24p video, but I suspect that it can't. That leaves me in a crappy place, because it means I either need to upgrade my desktop with a fancy new Intel processor, or I can say screw it and go Apple with Final Cut Pro. But the challenge there is whether to get a Mini or a Macbook so I can monitor and/or edit in the field. It's like a no-win situation.

Haha, is that a cat shadow I see in the close-up of the helix?

I would wait for the 2nd generation Intel chips (I forget the codename used) due later this year. From the preliminary benchmarks found on the internet, they seem to blow away anything available today.
