Hardware and Accessories / iMac 27" and Storage Solution
« on: July 31, 2014, 04:41:08 PM »
Hey community...few questions:

1. I am purchasing an iMac 27" with a 256 SSD to run OS and Apps
2. I will upgrade the ram to 32gb (or is this overkill?)
3. I need two external HD solutions (1 for importing/editing/converting/exporting) (1 for backup)

Can I get away with 2gb Raid O and USB 3 for ML Raw footage?  I do short narrative/documentaries for my students so I was thinking I import both 64gb KB cards onto the 2gb Raid 0 for editing (128gb of footage) then after the final video is created deleting all DNGs and raw data, thus freeing the Raid 0 2gb drive up for the next project and transferring the final video to a 4, 6, or 8 TB external HDD 7200 rpm for storage of pictures/documents/videos only

Any gaps in my logic?  I was considering 4tb Raid 0 but i'd rather save $$$

From NYC! Looking to meet up with other ML enthusiasts as I am a newbie would love to learn from more experienced or enthusiastic hobbyists.

Greetings community,

I am going to be purchasing a Komputerbay 128gb 1000x card form Amazon this week and begin my journey learning how to use ML for video raw and photos.

I had an idea, wasn't sure if anyone would be interested.  This is such an open source and helpful community that I wanted to offer a nice NYC lunch and B&H ($25) gift card for any locals who would like to meet up in NYC for a day of ML recording/shooting.  The purposeful would be twofold:

1. Meet up with like-minded enthusiasts to create some great footage
2. Serve as a learning/teaching platform for members to expedite the learning curve

Hope there is some enthusiasm generated.  Even if you're new to this and not an expert maybe we could meet and try to figure this out together.
