How much does RAM speed matter in video editing? I primarily use Premiere Pro, sometimes Avid. Footage ranges from anywhere between 1080p from a Canon DSLR (T3i, T4i, etc.) to 4.6K footage or higher from a RED, or Black Magic, or ARRI, etc (I guess that's most of the spectrum..).

Grab as much higher frequency you can in your budget, but don't sacrifice memory size in that process.

It matters a lot, as the footage is preloaded in your RAM when your are time-line scrubbing(I'm also a premiere pro user), so when you're editing, it'll help you load and render quicker to get real-time update status and play the video in higher resolution in realtime.

Thanks! That's not the answer I wanted, which probably means I should really pay attention.

 

OK, let's say I'm editing a feature film (about 90 min), shot on a RED at 4.6K, 24fps, and (idk if this would be relevant) a CGI Bigfoot has about 6 minutes of screen-time. Would 3000 Mhz make a significant (or even noticeable) difference while scrubbing than 2400?

Also, are there other areas aside from scrubbing where RAM speed has a noticeable impact?
