Blackmagic multidock 10G for editing?
I am using a MacBook Pro with OSX 12.2 to edit. Mostly doing HD stuff, but more folks are asking for 4K, so I got myself a LaCie 36TB 2big Dock 2-Bay Thunderbolt 3 RAID Array to accommodate the greater storage needs. I used the Thunderbolt connection with the array, of course. I left it as a RAID 0, thinking this would give me the most speed
But I’ve been VERY disappointed.
I’m using the laptop just for 4K, so I can’t evaluate performance with HD, but for my 4K work it feels like it’s constantly spinning down, even if I pause for just a minute, and then I have to wait and wait. I’m doing nothing at all complicated. Hardly any effects beyond cross dissolves and dips to black, but it regularly gets stuck.
So, unless someone tells me to not give up using a HDD external drive (maybe I just have a bum drive?? or perhaps there’s something more robust and better??) I’m thinking about trying my luck with Blackmagic’s multidock and using SSD internal drives.
Anyone doing this and editing in 4K? If so, recommendations for 2.5″ internal SSD cards to use?
