Hi, I do simple video editing - not a pro - projects are usaully 30 - 45 minutes long. I just bought another hard drive and will be getting it shortly. I need to know the best way to set up my three drives for video editing and rendering.
I am using Sony Vegas and DVD Architect, have 2 gig memory, a 3.2 Pentium, and an MSI 875P board (SATA 150 connections). I use outside storage for archiving. My three drives:
WD 250g SATA 16mb cache (new)
WD 160g SATA 8mb cache (current Master w/ OS installed two partions)
WD 120g IDE 8mb cache (current Slave where finalized projects are sent to)
Should I put my OS and editing software on the faster 250g with more cache? Which drive should I capture to? Which drive should I send final projects to? Where should my Sony temp files be located? Should I even use the IDE drive when editing?
Sorry for all the questions, but any help I can get will be greatly appreciated.
