Separate source drive from encode drive
on Sep 24, 2006 at 10:40:31 pm

When editing video, it is good practice to use one drive as a source drive and then writing to an edit drive, firewire in to firewire out for example, to be more efficient and not have one drive spinning from read to write, back and forth. Is this a good practice for video encoding as well?

Because encoding is usually less disk bandwidth limited and more computational limited, this is generally not a concern. But, it certainly wouldn't hurt to read from a fast disk and write to a separate fast disk.
