Hi Waderman! Nice to see you around here (after seeing you around on AJ :) )

felt_tips summarized it well (as he always does) – there is no simple answer. I had a similar question a few weeks ago and after reading a few comments from VH authors, I decided to shoot in 30fps (actually, with my camera it’s 29.97fps, not 30fps). But don’t ask me why I chose that – I just did :D Maybe because of more information it contains.

EDIT: btw, here’s the thread I opened to ask this, 2 months ago. Maybe you’ll find it useful. http://videohive.net/forums/thread/recommended-fps-for-stock-footage/128425

Unfortunately, I can’t move a thread into another thread. I can only move threads to another forum.
move them to the forum where no one looks, like Site Feedback

:D

For me it’s not who will win at the end, but who will prove to be an excellent (positive) surprise, like Ghana was 4 years ago: they were considered outsiders, but they made it quite far.

Anyway, despite the time-difference, this is going to be interesting summer :D

Ah Serbia I see. Not sure if this is valid, but would it be more cost effective to order the laptop online with more options? Or would it cost even more? Not sure as I’m from the US :)

It usually is a bit more cost-effective to order online, but there aren’t much options for customization, as these computer hardware stores mainly order certain laptop configurations and not much can be changed.

Anyway, we’re going offtopic. I just wanted to as for your opinions on how problematic the scaling-down would be for me if I got a smaller resolution display. That was my biggest dilemma. After I decide(d) about that, it will be quite easy to find the computer to suit my needs :)

There were many discussions like this one in the past. And there never was an official statement, or if there was, it was not against this, or – as you see – nothing was done regarding this issue.

Just think about it – everybody has access to these forums, even new users. And these forum topics are great testimonials which bring in new authors. I don’t think that’s something Envato would like gone.

5 days! Im still waiting :( the bar around the 70%

It’s been rather slow around the weekend, but just think about it – reviewers are also human being (at least that’s what the rumors are :D ) so they also take a break on weekends ;)

Thanks for your posts, guys. Your input is valuable to me.

Just to make it clear – I do have a decent desktop setup which works very well for me, I’d say. I want to buy a laptop not to replace my desktop setup, but to use it when I travel, and also to change my workspace from time to time.

And I do find 1080p laptops in stores, but the fact still remains that they are in minority compared to the 1366×768 ones, and the price for the cheapest 1080p laptop is about twice the price than most 1366×768 models (which is still a mystery for me). Note: we are talking about Serbia here, not US.

But all this said, I think I will be choosing the 1080p model after all. Although it is more expensive now, I think/hope it’ll pay out in the long-term :)

I am looking for a laptop to buy, mainly so that I can “move around” and still be able to edit/upload stock footage. Since most of the laptops I saw have the resolution of 1366×768 pixels, and I mostly upload 1080p footage, I was wondering this: is this going to be a problem for me? I mean, if fullHD footage is scaled down to the 1366×768 display, is the difference going to be too big (ie. footage looking better than it is, hence the possibility of me not noticing poor quality shots?). Or should I invest more money and buy a 1080p screen laptop. (Oh, and btw, we’re talking about 15.6”, so it’s another parameter in the “equation” :) ) ... or am I over-thinking this? :D

What are your opinions on this, dear VH gurus? :)

p.s. I hope I wasn’t too confusing with my question :)

Is it only me, or is this starting to feel like another forum trolling like the previous episode with the guy who wanted to buy eMvato? :D
