Okay, so I'm in for a really daunting task. Me and some friends are going to make this short film and the crazy photographer has managed to get his hands on all sorts of stuff, including a RED ONE camera. So we're going to shoot the film in raw RED ONE, 4k.
So then I've been given the task to edit the film. The thing is that I've never dealt with RED footage, HD footage or 4k resolution. So this is all new to me. On top of that, my computer probably isn't as mighty as it should be for editing 4k footage. I'm sitting on my laptop right now so I can't check my exact specs on my stationary computer but I can give you an idea and add the exact specs later. It's basically a Windows Vista(32 bit), quad core 4 gb ram, 2.4 ghz processor with a Nvidia Geforce 8800 GT graphics card.
I know Adobe Premiere CS4 has special RED plugins, but my computer doesn't even meet the minimum requirements for that plugin. I don't know much about CS4 though, I've heard that it's supposed to be very heavy on your computer unless you've got a very powerfull one.
I haven't used CS3 and I don't know much about it.
Premiere Pro 2 I'm quite used too. But I've never edited this kind of footage on it.
So I'd be very grateful if you had any suggestions on which Adobe Premiere version would fit my computer and the video format that I will be editing.
Also, if you have any experiences with editing 4k RED footage, I'd love to hear your thoughts and tips on editing such a heavy format.
