    Live Capture / Growing Files for Event Highlight Reel

    MFCdesigns-bYFxJK Level 1

      Hey everyone-

      I'm hoping someone on here could give me some insight on this.  I've looked all over the web and can't find much on this workflow.


      I plan to live ingest the webcast feed via SDI to Thunderbolt to create a highlight edit for the end of the show.  I've never used Premiere to edit a growing file.  I plan on putting the refresh for the growing files to 30 seconds.


      I have a couple of questions:

      1) How much space do I need to capture 6+ hours of action?  I plan on capturing in either AVCi100 or AVCi50.

      2) What is the data speed needed for this?  SSD?  External USB 3.0?  I have an external dock via TB that can hold SSD or spinning disks.

      3) Is it good practice to capture one large file or break it out in to smaller, 30-60 min files?

      4) Obviously I'll try to get the best/fastest computer to do this, but would an MBP 2.3GHz i7 with 16GB DDR3 RAM work?


      Any insight on this workflow would be much appreciated.


      Thanks in advance,
