I use AE
I have mono Xeon E5-2687w (8 core, 16 thread) CPU running at 3.4Ghz, with 64 Gb Ram (8 x 8 Gb) and 1xTitan GTX, with Windows 10 on SSD.
In AE i have chose 3 Gb per thread (16x3=48Gb) for AE and keep 12 Gb Ram for Windows.
I make footage with Sony action Cam Sony FDR-X1000VR, in 4K 100Mbits/s. Xavcs, 30p, MP4,H264.
The computer need 53 minuts,for 5minuts and 33seconds of video, with effect for keep out Fisheye effect, as like it :
and i keep 4K from Effect by this way :
But i begin more long video than 5:33 and the computer need few hours.
I think to will upgrade my computer with a second CPU Xeon E5-2687w ( 8 core, 16 Threads), then, 2 x Xeon E5-2687w ( 16 core, 32 Threads).
The next motherboard : Z9PE-D8 WS
-My first problem, this motherboard have only 8 (2x4) Ram slot, 4 slot for CPU1 and 4 slot for CPU2. Then, i was thinking to put 4x8 Gb per CPU in the motherboard . 32Gb for CPU1 and 32 Gb for CPU2. In AE i can chose the number of CPU thread for AE/System and to give 0.75; 1; 1.5; 2; 3 Gb per thread for AE and keep Ram for Windows. i can select 1.5 Gb per thread in AE, 32thread x 1.5Gb=48Gb for AE, and i keep 16Gb for Windows.
From yours past experience of multi CPU, i don’t know if the système need so much 24Gb, and AE so less 1.5Gb per thread. Do you see any problem in my project ? it will run well ?
-My second problem, AE, for 4K video and few function, use well the 12 at 16 core maximum. Arround 16 core, after the benefit fall. I can keep few core for Windows and i will be under 16 core for AE, then i can have :
-- 14 core for AE, 28Thread is 28x2Gb = 56 Gb for AE and 8 Gb for Windows
-- or -- 13 core for AE, 26Thread is 26x2Gb = 52 Gb for AE and 12 Gb for Windows
-- or --12 core for AE, 24Thread is 24x2Gb = 48 Gb for AE and 16 Gb for Windows
By this way for Ram management, I make a mistake or how run Ram for AE and the 2 CPU ?
for example, if i needed 10Gb for Windows with my past mono Xeon E5-2687w, then, with dual Xeon E5-2687w, i will need 5Gb for CPU1 and 5 Gb for CPU2, or i will need 10 Gb for Cpu1 and 10 Gb for CPU2 ?
Du you know some thing about it?
From yours past experience, what will be the best Ram per thread for AE, maybe for Windows it will be half or double per CPU ?
-My third problem, i have AE CS6, and some test show to need to use 2014 CC 13.2 for multi CPU, and not after with 2015 CC. I have estimate with dual CPU, 37% minimum of benefit, but possible more benefit. Do you estimate the % benefit value i can hope? or from type of job in AE?
Today, from i see about AE need between 12/16 core maximum, from the incredible price for Xeon V2, V3, V4 upgrade for make dual CPU, i can upgrade my computer for cheap and to be near of the maximum performance it is possible to obtain from AE. I keep some high frequency CPU and dual CPU. I don’t hope from Intel 16 Core CPU with much more than 3.5 Ghz… not soon and not for cheap. I use my computer for lot of thing, and the benefit fall after 12-16 CPU core.
I think in futur to begin effect and some 3D.
If you have any council over my first point of view for this project…
P.S.: Sorry for my English level...
