    External Hard Drive for Raw footage?

    GrayWolfPictures

      Im sorry, this question has probobly been answered already but I'm just confused.

       

           If I am editing a project in Premiere pro cs6 and I have all of my raw clips on an external drive (usb 3.0) and import them into premiere from the external drive will this slow down the editing process? I have a 120gb SSD and just want to use that for the OS and Applications, while having my raw clips/recompresed clips with the scratch disks all on the external drive? or will this slow premiere pro down? So basically will the external drive with usb 3.0 with my raw footage  and scratch disks slow down premiere or will it just be fine?

       

      (just switched from FCP) Any help would be appreciated!
