  • Re: XAVC vs DNxHR performance

    [quote user="Terry Snyder"] I found a good price on a 2 TB Samsung 860 EVO to replace one of my internal 7200rpm mechanical media drives. [/quote] If a fast, a bit insecure volume of that size makes sense in your setup, go right ahead. I personally go for extremes, I'd do 2-3 500GB 860 pro drives in a speed raid down the road. really fast

    hmm, 72mbit .mp4 to 145 DNx sounds like an edge case. 220 might look a bit better, might be visually undetectable. maybe try your most complicated shot, trees, water, import as higher res, eyeball for differences. Staking 145 and 220 and adding difference effect can also be enlightening.

  • Re: Console issue

    The console can be described as chatty at times. The long rescan can be due to a drive spinning up from standby i guess. Are there any issues?

    Maybe you should also make sure that the higher quality is there to begin with? what camera/codec was the piece shot on? Effects and titles are easy. strg+5 for Media Creation settings, set render quality to DNx 220ish, titles too. right click timeline ->Clear renders in/out -> render again -> coffee break titles: clip menu -> recreate Title

    And regards to rendering: this sometimes happens. if it plays back in realtime, just ignore the problem. sometimes deleting the effect and re-applying works. worst case scenario: video mixdown of this portion of the timeline.

  • Re: Which one will perform best with MC? (rendering, export)

    only marginally. Some transcodes, AMA file export should be abot 30% faster. rather then buying new machines, you can look into CPU and RAM upgrades. google around, maybe z240 will accept some 8 core CPUs. EDIT: z240 is socket 1151, maxes out at quad core. z2 should be more upgradeable, depending on the model. personally, I'd consider less than

    Yeah, get another ssd to render to. I'd strongly suggest internal. imho never mind the reduced sata 3 speed. Is good enough for now, a bit better in your next machine. most ssds will only burst at sata 6 speed, drop to pretty much sata 3 speed in prolonged reads anyway. If you have enogh sata ports now, you can get 2 ssds and put them in a raid

    [quote user="Terry Snyder"] What I don't understand... I thought the smaller, more compressed files took more processing power while the larger less compressed files--while they take up more space--are easier on your computer? Or am I missing something? [/quote] This is generally true. But you can get bottlenecked by either CPU processing

  • Re: XAVC vs DNxHR performance

    CPU wise HQX is probably less demanding. looking at this chart: http://avid.force.com/pkb/articles/en_US/White_Paper/DNxHR-Codec-Bandwidth-Specifications it appears quite clear, that HQX on a single magnetic HDD won't work. personally i don't buy into the "everything in the same production codec" thing. If it consolidates, i'll

  • Re: XAVC vs DNxHR performance

    It's unlikely, but maybe the sturreing is harddrive related? does your cpu max out when playing back HQX? If you can consolidate the footage, then why not do that? no quality loss, saved HDD space. and render in HQX onto a ssd.
