    Personal Notes:

    The more system ram the better. Using 3 hardrives works best. One to read from, one to crunch the numbers, one to write the output file to. Will aid in speeding up your render times.

    in reply to: Changed to: Yay, Premiere Pro CC #211650

    One would think there is a way to preload the codecs onto the computer and save them. So, when there was limited or no internet the software still can be used. Which many location shoots may not have internet connections, which case you might be limited to just backing up files onto a laptop or other storage device, on a small budget shoot. When you get into paying licenses to film you will at least need to check the footage on-location, before you shutdown.

    While just meeting the Software minium requirements will allow the software to run on the given basic computer. Adobe recommends having at least 3 hardrives, when working with their video software. One to read the files from, one to allow the software to crunch the numbers on and one to write the end product too. Loading the system with as much ram as you can afford does help too. Videocards with large amounts of ram and CUDA Cores help during the editing process in that live editing preview loading is faster or completed in realtime. The more processing cores you have on the cpu will help reduce render times. In the 4k world having more than a single cpu, tons of ram is cruical, along with raid storage. I would have to say most video editing software on the market today would agree with Adobe's three drive minium for best stable working enviroment.

    Having worked with Adobe Premiere and After Effects for several years now. You can do some basic edits on a laptop, but rendering worked best on a desktop. Where you did basic editing on a laptop and saved the file,then rendered it out using the desktop. i7 worked alright for some projects, but a After Effects projects with a ton of effects, some rendering took sometimes days to complete. Moving to a Dual cpu, dual videocard,128 ram, 5 hardrive with a 12TB raid system the same rendering took less than an hour to complete. It all depends on how long your clients are going to wait for a finish project to be delivered.  In any production there are those unforeseen problems that come up and sometimes having a fast system can make the difference in keeping clients happy or delivering on-time. It is our pocketbook that decides which side of the coin we have to work. I know that no matter where, I fall Adobe support will always do their best to find a solution. For $49.99 a month I get everything Adobe makes and Adobe Support is always there.

    in reply to: Premiere or After Effects first? #210641

    Adobe has said you want all the ram you can get on both the system and the videocard., As many cores you can get on the cpu and plus more than a single hard-drive for rendering. The best case being: one to read the video files from, a free scratch disk, and a drive to write the final files to. All Hard-drives should be direct connected and not through a usb or thunderbolt.  This is best way to reduce rendering times for a home user with a limited budget. Adobe does put out a great product pretty hard to knock it. Like a lot of new things there is a learning curve, but Adobe is great at insuring there are books to help for all their products.
