Hello everyone I kinded asked this question about nine months ago but things change a little. I coming form using Final Cut Pro so please for give me. I just installed Production Premium and open up Premiere to new projects. My setup is a 1TB hard drive for OS and programs and two 1TB drives set for raid 0 I may add two more and make it a raid 5 in the near future. Any way at the bottom of the general tab it has Location C:\user\myname\documents\Adobe\Premire\5.0 Oh I will editing mostly AVCHD and very little DV material.
Under Scratch Disk Tab it has Captured Video, Captured Audio, Video previews, audio previews set the same as project. Ok I know this is not correct. The Capture video and audio should go to my raid and for now video and audio preview should go to my raid also until I add another signal drive for that correct?
I'd have a real problem using AVCHD on a RAID 0. For starters, you simply do not need that much speed for AVCHD, which has roughly the same data rate as DV. A single hard drive is more than fast enough for even multiple streams.
Secondly, with AVCHD, there is no tape backup. A RAID 0 has twice the chance of a drive failure as a single drive. And if that happens, your media is gone...period. No way to get it back.
For any kind of tapeless editing, I highly recommend some form of data protection. RAID 3 is best, then RAID 5, then RAID 1.
Thanks. Yeah raid 5 is coming soon I have no raid 3 option on my motherboard.
None do. You'd need an Areca controller card for RAID 3.
