Build your own Premiere Pro Editing computer

Featured Wednesday, 07 February 2018 22:39

Tips to build your own editing system, and a walk through of my new 8K editing MONSTER!

This is the ultimate system for editing high resolution video content using Adobe Premiere Pro CC. This is not a gaming machine or a fashion accessory - it is built to work and it is top spec in just about every regard.

Check out Puget Systems Premiere solutions at http://geni.us/PugetSystems

Check out the G-Tech Shuttle XL here: http://geni.us/GTech80tb

And the Eizo Monitor here: http://geni.us/EizoCG3184K

NOTE - This is a top of the line professional system - and overkill for the needs of most. The computer, monitor & G-Tech NAS together cost $20,000+ (see parts below)

I hope the general information I provided will help you build something that will meet YOUR needs when it comes to video editing.

CIDER HOUSE.... Geddit??
- NOTE - the 80 minute export time I achieved was exporting from the full 8k files to a 1080 final project. Unfortunately there are not many options out there in terms of codec for 8k just yet.

    Hi Matt, I am a director that just retired, I have a personal project I’m about to start. I’m going to buy a Red Epic W for a project. I liked your video on your editing system. Are you in Los Angeles? I would like to talk to you about work flow.

    Thanks

What should you buy? Which is best for portraiture? If you own a 70-200mm, is it worth getting an 85mm or 105mm f1.4 prime? Is there much difference in BOKEH?

In terms of maximum aperture to focal length - nothing beats the 600mm f4. And this new FL E variant from Nikkor is simply amazing for bird and wildlife photography.
