Are you a GoPro fanatic? Or maybe you get around on your adventures with a Contour Camera…either way, we have your video processing needs all covered!
Editing or encoding high resolution videos in any kind of timely fashion will definitely require a decent computer! With recent advancements in 4K technology, it is even more important to make sure that you are buying a system that is going to work for you, not against you.
The essentials for a video editing PC
- the largest processor that you can afford – ideally an Intel i7
- preferably a minimum of 8GB of memory – even more would be better
- the fastest storage within your budget! A sold state drive will make the world of difference to your video editing
- if you are going to be encoding video from a camera – we highly recommend a good card reader and a good memory card
How much you need to spend will all come down to how impatient you are. If you want things to happen relatively quickly, you will need to look at a setup with an Intel i7 CPU, 16GB Memory and a 500GB SSD. So budget a few grand at least. If you do this properly the first time, you won’t find yourself needing to upgrade so soon.
Editing 4k Video Footage
This will not happen quickly – there is no way around this! You can have a Rolls Royce setup with all the good gear in it, but the sheer size of the footage is so immense that even the fastest CPU’s on the market today will struggle with it. Now that 4K is growing in popularity, this will surely change in coming years.
