Project Hard Drive / Storage SystemDear cinematography community, I have build my self a good pc system for various tasks such as: editing, color grading etc. My main fast hard drive for projects was a 1Tb M.2 SSD. It has been working really good (maybe a bit overkill). Now I ran in to a problem that most of the projects I work on are bigger than 1Tb and now I need a new solution for a fast storage system / drive to do editing and color grading with big RAW files. I have been looking into the Samsung 4Tb SSD (2.5") which would work but if a project is just a little over 4Tb than that would not work. So does anybody have a good solution to this problem? It needs to be fast and not too expensive. Maybe something like a Hard Drive Raid System where I can stick 4 hard drives with a total of 8Tb and connect that to my pc via thunderbolt or usb-c? My pc does not have thunderbolt connection but I think there are some expansion cards out there? After a projects is done, it gets archived on a other drive. Would love to hear from you guys! Best Thomas.
PCIe Expansion Boxes
Davo McConville posted a topic in Grading, DI and TelecineHi all, I'm trying to expand a Retina MacBook Pro via an Akitio Thunder2 Thunderbolt enclosure. I've looked at the Cyclone 2705 and 2707 boxes – they look good but are impossible to buy. Does anyone know enough about the Magma EB7 boxes – usually used for Digidesign Pro Tools setups – and whether they would work for this purpose and offer enough bandwidth? https://www.amplicon.com/IPC/product/PCI-Rackmount-MAGMA-3732.cfm THANKS
Hi, I'm primarily an Editor dabbling in motion graphics. I'm wanting more on-set work and have been offered the opportunity to do some AC and data wrangling on a local short in Leeds. I'll be using a MacBook Pro 15" (late 2011) 2.5GHz Intel Core i7, 16 GB RAM. Shooting RED scarlet and backing up on two G-DRIVE's - Yet to have confrimation whether or not the drives have eSATA. As my mac has one FireWire 800 port and one Thunderbolt, I'll be running into some problems on the way in working out how fast I can transfer data on the budget I have. I've heard and read of the problems of trying to daisy chain two FW800 drives and a RED station, all through one little FW port. I've also read a lot of positive things about the Sonnet Echo Pro Thunderbolt adapter. http://www.sonnettech.com/product/echoexpresscard34thunderbolt.html I'm hoping to get the eSATA extension, but if the G-DRIVE's are not compatible the FW800 will do for now. For £250 I'm wondering if this is the best option I have for transferring data as quickly as possible, while linking two G-DRIVE's through one eSATA and using the second eSATA for the RED station? Thank you. Luke Wheldon.
