Sony Vegas Rendering times
on Jun 29, 2015 at 9:30:11 am

Over the past 2 days i have been building a computer that is able to handle rendering 4k in sony vegas in a reasonable time. The specs include the following:

AsRock X99 Extreme3
Intel Core i7-5820K
8GB Gigabyte R9 390 G1 Gaming
G-Skill Ripjaws 8GB 2400MHz x4
Samsung 850 EVO M.2 120GB
Seagate NAS 3TB ST3000VN000 x2
Corsair H110 280mm

So my question is towards those people that are experienced sony vegas users that will know the approximate rendering times of this system when rendering 4k at 24 fps for approx 30 min of footage.

Any help would be much appreciated!

Did you read Sony's recommendation System Requirements for 4K editing? They recommend 8-cores, 16GB of memory, and a multi-disk RAID for 4K editing. You have none of those requirements so your computer is under specification for 4K work according to Sony and it will probably take a long time to do anything.

It makes a big difference depending on the type video your editing as well. For example, If you use a gopro, Rendering the original mp4 will take much longer than if you use GoPro Studio and render to uncompressed avi. As far as using a multi drive raid, I get great results using solid state drives. I personaly don't use raid drive systems as I can capture anything I've tried using SSD's without dropping frames, including 1080P 30 fps 10 bit uncompressed avi on an I7 sony Laptop, and even a I5 Surface Pro 3.
I don't believe the drive is the bottle neck in your case. Rendering video uses the Processor way more than Drive read and write.

Sony did say RAID or SSD so SSD's are fine. They're just small and 4K video is big so if you have a big enough SSD that will be fine as you said.

You have specified a nice gaming machine. You can generally double minimum requirements for decent experience. At the moment 4K spec is in the realm of high end Xeon motherboards.

Proxy editing would probably be the best workflow, that way you are not spending time rendering resolution you do not need to see during editing. Clearly CC and configuring certain effects need to be done as full res.

16 cores, means 16 physical cores and not 8 physical with HT. The HT spec would be 32 cores.

I would do 64GB of RAM on an X99 machine, so that you have plenty of room for application, background, and copious windows disk cache.

Choose the 390x over the 390, always choose the XT chip vs pro. XT chips are what the flagship Firepro cards use.

Ok so firstly i would like to thank you all for your helpful advice. Secondly i have altered my build to the following:
AsRock X99 Extreme3
Intel Core i7-5960X
8GB Gigabyte R9 390 G1 Gaming
G-Skill Ripjaws 32GB 2400MHz (8x4)
Samsung 850 EVO M.2 120GB
Seagate NAS 3TB ST3000VN000
Corsair H110 280mm
Fractal Design Tesla R2 1000W

So as you can see i havent changed much, the only thing is the processor. The reason is that 4k is not an immediate plan but something that is going to happen in the future so therefor an ssd is not needed for 1080p editing so i am going to wait until ssd's get cheaper and larger so when i start 4k editing im going to purchase an appropriate ssd. Also the price on this build is already much higher than anticipated therefore i have not gone for the 390X.

Again thank you all for your input.

You didn't list your case. Make sure it has room for the Corsair H110 cooler because that's a double fan cooler which usually requires that the case have a double fan vent on top to place it in.

I also didnt mention the monitor.
They are as follows:
Fractal Design Define R5
AOC U2868PQU

Ive had good experiences with the define series and as for the monitor, i am already over budget.
