  • Re: RAM configuration for iMac 27" i7 quad core 3.4GHz

    Answering this myself in case anyone needs to know in the future :) I called Videoguys and they recommend 2 X 8GB RAM. In the future, should you want to improve performance, you can then add 2 X 8GB RAM to go into the last two RAM slots. No matter what, RAM needs to be added in equal pairs. If you bought...

  • RAM configuration for iMac 27" i7 quad core 3.4GHz

  • Ram Allocation

    MC-6, I was running 8gigs and my baseline render test of a 22 minute episode took 20:22.9 seconds to render with 3 effects applied. I then installed 20gig of ram and to render the very same episode took 25 seconds longer. Do I have to tell MC-6 that there is now more Ram available through some sort of...

    Good day. I have been working on a large project with numerous long-form sequences with hundreds of edits and graphics.
