needs for editing R3d Files
on Sep 18, 2009 at 11:31:33 pm

i'm about to get the new mac pro with:

- 8 core: 2 * Quad-Core Intel Xeon 5500 series processors. (16 logical cores)

- 16 GB of rams
- ATI Radeon HD 4870 with 512MB of GDDR5 memory.
- Mac Pro RAID Card with 3 SAS 15000 rpm hard drives

would that be good enough to Edit 2K red files?
if not, what do i need.

and wich card is better to use? the KONA 3 , MXO2 Rack, or the DeckLink HD Extreme?

thanks , hope u can answer me soon.

[samer mahmoud] "would that be good enough to Edit 2K red files? "

if you are going to edit at 2K monitoring becomes an issue if you are not using a 2K capable monitor (one that has dual link inputs)

The Kona 3 card allows for realtime playback of 2K material on a standard 1080 monitor using the 2K crop function. I do not believe either of the other products allow for this contingency when working with 1080 True P material from the RED One.

Why are you asking this in a forum for the AjA Io products?
