[VIDEO-IDEA] A - REALISTIC - COMPLETE - computer build for content creators

 Share

LTT has done multiple computer builds and sponsored video's focused on workstation PC's / video editing PC's

But as far as my YouTube search tell's me they never really made a video on what would be good enough / acceptable instead of what would be ideal.

What setup would be good enough to play back a short film made in adobe premiere without unusable lag while editing?
What screen would be acceptable for video editing in terms of color accuracy?
How much ram would a more average video editing session require (one with 1080p/1440p footage, not some true raw 4k footage)
If you don't really care about final render times or FULL playback resolutions. If you are OK with 1/2 res and 1h+ render times for a short 10/20m video. What would be the best choice in terms of hardware?

Basically a build that isn't overkill, the best you could get or 'budget'. Just a build that does the job.

These are just a few questions that i have that I would like to see get answered in a video.

Maybe they could get one of the video editors to make a short cinematic video or film on a system that they put together.

Just a basic film / cinematic of the new set with some color grading, transitions, blending layers together and text elements would do the job. Then they should use this project file for the results instead of some extreme torture project file to keep it realistic.

a lot of what you suggest is subjective. But a good midrange video editing build would be a ryzen 1600, a good b350 mobo, decent 3000mhz+ ram, a boot ssd and a second work ssd if you can afford it and... idk about good monitors, honestly I'm using about the cheapest monitor at the time I purchased it so...  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯  E: Oh forgot the graphics card, testing I've seen says any graphics card within the last 5 years will speed up rendering the same amount

You can edit video on a potato if you have the patience for it. It's impossible to quantify what is "good enough" because it varies from person to person.

Don't ask to ask, just ask... please 🤨

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.
