Hi there -

- a real dunce of a question to be sure but how do you 'play in' to AE ?

I'm used to a Flint platform where the playback machine is controlled remotely from the Flint software and selected clips copied straight to the raid.

Is there an equivalent setup for AE please ?

Also please - if there any editors out there - would appreciate comment as to whether they think its 'too much' to dump clips onto an external HD from an Avid or will it slow down the edit too much ?

There were a couple of AE versions where one could digitize footage from a connected tape machine. If you have PPro, then that's where you do it.

The faster a drive is, the better AE's performance. Keep this in mind when storing footage.

Rather back through the sands of time, no?

If you don't have Pr on your machine, you may be able to ingest tape with the native capture applications for your video card (AJA VTR Xchange, Black Magic Media Express) -- or any other NLE, for that matter.

This is doubly important for Ae's cache! SSD is perfect here.

Depending on your disk subsystem and the kind of work you do, you may see a performance increase by rendering to a separate disk than the one your media is stored on. A fast RAID can make this unnecessary.
