    Is new build ok for 4 layers AVCHD editing without RAID

    Anthony Freeman 99

      Hi All,

       

      I am building a a new system to edit with using CS5 and encore. We do mostly wedding videos and would need to edit 3 to 4 layers (from 3 to 4 cameras) of AVCHD 1920 x 1080 footage.

       

      No single clip will be in excess of 45 minutes long. The videos can be as long as about 3.5 hrs each and we can do up to 13 a month, so we require a stable and responsive machine.

       

      My question is will the specs below fulfill the criteria, of editing 3-4 layers AVCHD smoothly WITHOUT having to RAID?  (I am really technically challenged and it RAID seems very complicated – so ive gone with fast components in the hope that we wont have to use RAID to accomplish our goal of editing these 4 layers)
