NVMe M.2 for video exports, converting and render good?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

One of the things that lags me so hard is converting h264 from cameras to dnxhd for editing, then rendering, and of course the exports to mpeg bluray and h264.

 

I'm going to get a 1tb ssd and a 500gb nvme m.2. But I don't know how to place them, should I do 1 tb for the files and the nvme for os, programs, transcoding? 

 

Right now in my system I use an SSD for OS, programs etc. And a SSHD for converting, Premiere Files, media storage for the project. Once I am done with the project I back it up on a few large HDDs, 

What you guys think?

the SSHD is probably the only thing you really need to replace with an SSD

 

also consider getting a cheap 60gb-120gb ssd as a dedicated scratch disk for adobe apps

Yeah I have a 60gb ssd scratch disk, this stuff was bought a while ago, now the wait times are bottle necking my productivity, cant be waiting 8 hrs for all the footage to convert to dnxhd. Plus we are thinking of offering 4K soon.

 

So from what I searched Nvme can help, I just dont know what order to use it as, OS, programs etc, or converting disk, temp file storage?

What's the rest of the PC? Throwing a stronger CPU and more RAM into it might help...

Use the nvme as your write disk for your work files the percived preformance gains on using an nvme over a quality ssd is negligible.  The preformance gains from using an nvme as a render/scratch disk vs a ssd are noticable.

 

Your os and apps are loaded into ram on boot and opening the speed gain in nvme os drives is small as such.  But in areas where you have sustained writes the speed of an nvme can be helpful.
