  • HDV Performance with Edius

    As a potentailly new HDV editor with Edius I was wondering what sort of performance to expect editing natively on the timeline. Would a mid range dual core laptop be able to handle HDV OK. What sort of limits are people hitting? Can you, for example, do a PIP with color correction on both tracks without choking the system or even more?

    It should handle it OK. Most dont use native HDV of course, capturing to the HQ codec will greatly improve performance but you do need an external data storage system.
    Also, if you haven't bought a laptop you should get one with an Express Card slot.

      Hi Mark,

      What are the advantaged of an express card slot, faster disk access perhaps? If so what are the peripherals that work well?

        Connects to the PCI Express chipset so you can run high performance RAID arrays as if the drives were connected to your motherboard. The alternatives, Firewire, USB 2.0 are not capable of 3Gb/s like eSata.

        There's external housings from Firmtek which are cheap, you add your own drives, or solutions from Caldigit & Sonnet Technologies for example. They are hugely popular on MacBoook PRO's, unfortunately Windows notebooks are harder to find, though it's getting better.

          I should add that you need an eSata HBA to complete the picture.
