    Computer for editing 4k (150/100Mbps) Panasonic HC-X1E footage

    funkytwig Level 1

      Hi.. We just got a Panasonic HC-X1E and was wondering what computer we would need to edit the footage without transcoding?  The main thing I am interested in is which CPU we would need.


      The specs of the footage from the Panasonic site are:


      Recording / Playback Mode


      PS 1920x1080 59.94p/50.00p: Average 25Mbps (VBR)

      PH 1920x1080 59.94i/50.00i/23.98p: Average 21Mbps (VBR)

      HA 1920x1080 59.94i/50.00i: Average 17Mbps (VBR)

      HE 1440x1080 59.94i/50.00i: Average 5Mbps (VBR)

      PM 1280x720 59.94p/50.00p: Average 8Mbps (VBR)

      SA 720x480/720x576 59.94i/50.00i (SIDE CROP/LETTERBOX/SQUEEZE): Average 9Mbps (VBR)

      MP4/ MOV

      UHD 3840x2160 29.97p/25.00p/23.98p 100M: Average 100Mbps (VBR)

      FHD 1920x1080 59.94p/50.00p/29.97p/25.00p/23.98p 200M (ALL-Intra): Average 200Mbps (VBR)

      FHD 1920x1080 59.94p/50.00p 100M: Average 100Mbps (VBR)

      FHD 1920x1080 59.94p/50.00p/29.97p/25.00p/23.98p/59.94i/50.00i 50M: Average 50Mbps (VBR)

      Did some googeling and still not really sure.  Can someone point me at any recent articles or give me your thoughts.


      We are shooting in the 50p/150Mbps setting, but would shooting on maybe a 25p/100Mbps seating help?.
