Videoediting on labtop
on Jan 19, 2009 at 7:00:32 am

Hi,

I have a labtop with Dual Core intel. I want to use this for videoediting because I travel a lot. As stated in the DIY articles to have the best performance for videoediting, you must have at least to seperate disks, One for the OS and the other for the videofootage.

What is the best way to do it when you are using the labtop.

1. 2nd IDE harddisk on the USB port?
2. 2nd SATA harddisk on the USB port?
3. Make you use of the 1 Harddisk in the Labtop?
4. 2nd harddisk on an internal bracket in the labtop?

Thanks for your answers

HI,
actually the best way is 3 HDD

1) OS
2) capture/work
3) final render output. (you NEVER read/write to the same drive)

the best answer is eSata. you can get an eSata Express card and 2 eSata drives.

eSata is far faster than firewire or USB, USB would be the worst.

a Siig or Sonnet esata card with Seagate free agent Pro or Sonnet external.
i think gtech now makes esata as well.
