  1. Hey Guys, Can I get some feedback about which RAID configuration to build for video editing? I am looking for reliability, but really don't know what I need. I have been recommended to use 8 drives for HD editing. If anyone has experience with this and it's working for you, please let me know.
  2. what programs will you be using? I'm using Premiere Pro CS3 and the rest of Production Premium. I used the Adobe guidelines when I built the system, save the SCSI disk array. It does not perform well with the 7200 rpm drive for video and I'm only using SD, not HD. So I guess going a bit over the top will prepare the system for the future (how much better can the technology get than HD?) but I was thinking of keeping the cost down and storage up with SATA drives instead of SCSI.
  3. Thanks---I think the throughput is right if I am understanding "Rick's HD Primer" chart correctly? http://library.creativecow.net/articles/ge...iere-pro-HD.php Frame Size Type Mbps GiB per hour 1920 x 1080 8-bit 4:2:2 24 fps 795 350 1920 x 1080 10-bit 4:2:2 24 fps 994 437 1920 x 1080 8-bit 4:2:2 30 i fps 994 437 1920 x 1080 10-bit 4:2:2 30 i fps 1243 546 Can you recommend a card and drives that you have had good luck with? Also a guide for building?
  4. 1200 Mb/s will probably be the max throughput I will need. I haven't pulled the trigger on the parts...3Ware 9500S-8 8 ports SATA 150 Raid Controller Card, It's PCI, will it work? I'm looking for optimum performance and reliability. Capacity is of secondary importance, I suppose.
