When you start to think about building a DaVinci Resolve system, you will run into a lot of technical jargon. What technical terms are the key components to building your system? In this video, authors Robbie Carman and Patrick Inhofer discuss what types of hard drives are needed and their role in a DaVinci Resolve system.
- Robbie, one of the reasons I have a love-hate…relationship with gear in general…is that very often a problem with on piece of gear…looks like it's a problem with another piece of gear,…and there is probably nothing…that demonstrates this more than hard drives.…- I agree, and sometimes you're playing something down…and something is not playing in real time…and you get frustrated and you go, you know what,…I'm just going to buy a whole new computer, right?…- Or I have to put in a new GPU,…or I don't have enough RAM, and it turns out,…the reason you're not getting real time playback…on your timeline is because you've got the wrong type…of hard drives playing back the type of footage…you're trying to play down in that timeline.…
- Yeah, hard drives are vital.…Disk speed and disk capacity are important things…for your overall level of performance…that you're going to get in Davinci Resolve,…and the thing you have to understand about choosing storage…is that it's always going to be a balance act, right?…It's going to be a balance act of capacity versus speed.…
