Good hard drive workflow
on Jul 20, 2012 at 2:47:46 pm

I'm assistant editing my first feature (Alexa ProRes444/FCP7 workflow), and I have questions about hard drive solutions I was hoping you could advise me with.

Our post team, which consists of me, a DIT, and an Editor, are thinking of buying four 4tb G-drives for starts, along with two 1.5tb G-drive Minis for DIT. Our plan is for the DIT to copy the footage and sound to both mini drives, and then hand one off to me at the days end. I'll back up the footage and sound to two 4tb drives. On the remaining two 4tb drives, I'll create 422 offline files - these drives will be used for editing. So to recap, two 4tb G-Drives will be used strictly for archiving the 444 files and sound, and the other two 4tb G-Drives will be used for editing - both drives clones of each other.

And we'll buy more G-drives for archiving as needed.

Does this sound efficient?
Is there a more efficient hard drive solution?
