Recently I came across Dell XPS 8700 (i7 4th Gen, 12GN RAM, 1TB HD and a Graphic Card though not remember exactly which one was it) and I am in the market to my very first proper editing desktop though like many I am also on a very tight budget.
I use Adobe Premier and After Effects.
- Are these specs good enough for Full HD and 4K RAW video editing?
- Will I be able to make upgrades in this setup with time?
- How reliable is Dell XPS 8700 when it comes on butt kicking editing?
- Shall I opt for it or look for something else?
I just wanted to get some recomendation for editing workflow if it is possible. I have Adobe CC, filmconvert, and I shoot with 5d mark ii, and I will be shooting with GH4 when atamos shogan comes up. I like to do color grading with speedgrade and apply filmconvert.
Some people say I should convert 5d footage to prores before editing as prores has more color space. I am not sure if I should do that.
Filmconvert is really nice but I am not sure when exactly to apply it. if use it after doing correction then it will change the look again.
