RAM and storage for editing 6k

PostTue Dec 24, 2019 12:07 am

Hello,

I want to buy the BMPCC 6k and the new MacBook Pro.

I'm not sure about the RAM and storage.

Are 32GB RAM enough to edit 6k? Or should I take 64GB?
Is it better to have the project files and footage on an external drive like the Samsung T5?
I think about taking a 2 TB SSD in the MacBook Pro, it's much faster but can you recognize the difference while editing?

Thanks :)

If we are talking BRAW here and editing in a 4K/UHD timeline, 32 GB is plenty as long as you don't make complex work in Fusion.

Your bottleneck will not be SSD speed, but the CPU and GPU.
Resolve Studio 16.2 and Fusion Studio under MacOS Mojave 10.14.6
iMac 2017 Radeon Pro 580 8 GB VRAM and 32 GB RAM
Mac mini 16 GB RAM plus eGFX Breakway Radeon RX 580
