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
    Ted Mendenhall

Given the official announcement, you'd have to ignore all the other recent Canon releases, and how they have been crippled on specs, to truly believe all this hype...
