Best storage solution for BMCC 2.5K raw
on Jul 11, 2014 at 6:30:15 pm

Just recently purchased the Blackmagic Cinema Camera and need advice on a storage solution.

System Details:
Mid 201 Mac Pro
Resolve 11
FCP X 10.1.2
Motion 5.1.1
Compressor 4.1.2

Is it best to go with eSata or USB 3? Not needing a great deal of storage but want something that will be fast enough. I have been looking at products from G Technology, OWC and Sonnet; any advice is greatly appreciated.

Will be working with raw and plan on Transcoding to ProRes for editing in FCP then back to Resolve for color grading and additional finishing.

I am an avid user of FCP X!

I'm a fan of G-Tech storage for field use. For editing, I'm waiting for a Promise2 R6 RAID drive. One-on-one, USB3 is faster than e-Sata. But, if you have a number of USB devices connected at the same time that might slow down the transfer rate to the lowest speed drive and so, e-Sata might be faster in that situation.

Thank you. I assume it is possible to add a USB 3 card to my current system.

EDIT

Just noticed an error in my original post. I meant to say mid 2012 Mac Pro but left out the 2, oops!

Sonnet, D-link and others make USB3 PCI cards.
