I hope this hasn't been covered too much before.
I'm looking for everyone's ideas on the best way to manage HD video files in terms of storage, within their workflow.
My workflow is basically:
1) Digitise from Z1
2) Edit in Final Cut / tweak with After Effects
3) Export to a)tape b)DVD c)harddisk
Fine, simple, but as I'm doing more and more I'm obviously spending more of my time shuffling files around between internal disks, external USB and firewire disks, and a NAS.
I wondered what everyone else is doing... I'm going to need to buy more disk space soon (at the moment it's a random assortment of externals + the system disk in my MacPro) and thought it would be good to make an informed choice.
Currently considering the following two options (I'm sure you all have many others I haven't thought of):
Internal RAID setup for digitising and editing, archiving off to external disks
External disks for digitising and editing (fast enough?)
Any advice happily received! It's going to get more important soon, as I'm going to upgrade my camera (a whole new topic!!) and also will be working with RED in the next month or so..
Thanks for your help
