Complete noob needs professional advice for HD setup
on Jun 21, 2015 at 3:39:52 am

I have recently purchased a new Mac Pro 2013. 32gb ram with d500 and 1TB SSD.

I also have a WD 6TB thunderbolt in Raid 1 (3TB for total backup)

I also have a 256GB lacie SSD via thunderbolt and a samsugn 256gb SSD via usb 3.0

I need advice on the optimal hard drive setup. So far I have my OS and apps on my internal 1TB SSD along with my raw project files and my AE and PP cache on my lacie. With my samsung 256 SSD in the mail how should i allocate that space?

Assumption:

OS and Apps on my system 1TB

AE and PP cache on my Lacie.

Project and raw files on my Samsung SSD.

My WD Thunderbolt Raid is just for backup at the moment after i finish a project unless someone can suggest something better.

Completely new to HD workflows.

Any help would be great.

Hi Andrew,

HD editing is standard nowadays. So it's nothing special.
For a comfortable workflow, you need about 400MB/s working speed with a standard HD workflow such as ProRes422. So both your thunderbolt raid and SSD provide you with this. Even USB3.0 is suitable.

Your set-up:
OS and Apps on my system 1TB - Okay

AE and PP cache on my Lacie. - Possible

Project and raw files on my Samsung SSD. - Use the thunderbolt raid for your files with Raid6.

My WD Thunderbolt Raid is just for backup at the moment after i finish a project unless someone can suggest something better. - Use USB3.0 (3-6TB HD's are possible) for back-up.

cheers

Rainer
