External Drives for Red Footage
on Jan 30, 2014 at 7:59:12 pm

I'm considering cutting RED native in Premiere Pro CC (Mac).

The question is what are the minimum drive requirements for an external drive for reasonable playback.

If I do the math for 4K @ 1.9:1 24 fps Compression 3:1, I get a data rate of 101 MBytes per second.

Is playback off a Thunderbolt drive realistic? I'm seeing LaCie 2bigs rated at around 325 MB/second, and 5bigs rated higher. Is anyone currently using external Thunderbolt drives and can comment?

Is USB 3 even a consideration?

Franz.
