Ryzen 5700G Processor OK For Premiere Pro Work ?
Firstly id like to define my work so you can advise me better…
They are all short format films… 2-3 minute duration projects. All my footage is 4K but i set the project seq res to 2.5K or 1080p as that is what i finally render to. I use maybe 35-40 clips on the timeline with color grades and maybe some effects and masking here and there. I also use Ae separately for 1 minute duration projects of motion graphics. Sometimes i use Ae to only motion track a shot or 2 from Pr.
MY EXISTING RIG…
64gb 3200mhz CL16 Ram.
250gb NVME for OS n Progs.
1TB SSD for Footage.
HDD for Renders.
HDD for Backups.
650w Corsair Bronze certified PSU.
Triple Monitor (1080px3).
This itself is able to handle my projects above smoothly. But i have to preview at 1/8 though that looks clear enough when its a small preview window on the interface. Some effects refuse to work with a dialogue that the graphics processing cant handle etc. Timeline scrub is silk smooth and playback with 0 frames dropped both backwards n forwards as long as im in 1/8 or 1/4 preview. Sometimes the effects sliders get stuck and struggle when im grading as in they move sluggish which makes it tough to make accurate changes. Masks when drawn and when being adjusted are sluggish and the processor ramps up high. Renders are painfully slow with a 1:15 ratio, a 1 minute project takes 15-20mins to render. Imagine if i had to render a 5 minute project. These are the major Pros and Cons ive experienced with Pr. Touch wood now matter whatever sluggish etc…it has never ever crashed….ZERO crashes with Pr and Ae. They might suddenly stall and strain and become unresponsive but after a few seconds of patience it will be back to normal. In my 20 years of editing videos….VEGAS Pro used to crash every 30 mins….and that too with even last manual saved states going missing (horror software).
So now….. i wish to be able to scrub the timeline the same way but just one step higher….maybe 1/2 res (full res would be a dream lol) ? I want those fx that refused to work to probably work that would be helpful. Faster render would maybe help. I dont mind 1:2 or 1:4 ratio for render times.
So im planning to upgrade only the processor to a Ryzen7 5700G….the rest of the rig remains the same. Here also i would work with the iGPU till i can throw in a 1660 super or something like that. People say Intel Quick Sync helps with timeline playback. Many say QSV spoils the videos render quality and to go with only CPU processing. But for an intel that matches the 5700G…its demands are higher…power guzzlers…run hot…want me to revamp my power supply,,,,cooler etc just to have a 12700.
