    Which Disk Drive the bottleneck in this scenario?

    MichaelBuieFilms Level 1

      Let's say you have four physical hard drives on your system:

      C:, the System Drive, has CC installed on it

      D: has your project files and footage/Source Audio and resources (like scores and audio samples)

      E: is your Scratch Drive

      F: is your render drive

       

      1. If you were to export a sequence from a project on E: to a folder on F:, which drive would have the highest level of usage during the render? (Assuming they were all identical drives?)

       

      2. If you were playing your sequence inside Premiere Pro CC, which drive would have the highest level of usage during the playback on the sequence? (Assuming they were all identical drives?)
