I am keen to utilise Thunderbolt now I have switched to Premiere and After Effects CS6.

Can anyone recommend a cheapish model - and also if I should put my disk caches and footage on the new drive? Storage and workflow advice would be much appreciated

Thanks

Gavin

Nothing beats an internal SSD for Premiere and AE, except maybe a ioFX card. You can use an external Thunderbolt drive but I would invest first in an internal SSD.

As far as workflow advice- can you be more specific? There are a lot of aspects of workflow - for basics I recommend checking out the Adobe site.

Thanks the response

My workflow is basically editing in premiere and grading and effects in AE. I do 3 to 4 music films a week that are around 5mins long. All fairly basic

So workflow wise can instore everything in one place - caches and footage from both apps?

I assume this is a follow-up to your previous thread, right?

Basically, my advice to you is that performance will scale with budget. Buying a single Thunderbolt hard drive will perform better than the Firewire 800 hard drive you have now, but not as well as a Thunderbolt RAID.

Yes, you can store your caches and footage on the same drive -- but you want that drive to be as fast as you can afford.
