1. What computer, speed, storage, graphics, etc. do I need to quickly export long Youtube Videos?
This is what I currently have. I have Hitfilm Express and want to try my hand at doing combo video music for a channel I created on YouTube. 1st project took 8 hours to export a 3 hour video. Want fast ability to export videos of durations up to 10 hours. These are the specs of my current computer.
SPECS OF CURRENT COMPUTER: Intel Core [email protected],2.71GHZ; RAM 12GB; System Type 64Bit operating system, x64 based processor; windows 10, version 1903
I will NOT be using this computer. This is simply info to go with my example. I want to BUY a new PC windows environment to do these projects long term. I don't want an all in one system. I'm guessing I could buy what I need in a tower (CPU). Then buy cheap keyboard and mouse.
2. Sound reasonable?
Prefer PC windows to save the learning curve associated with Apple/Mac based products. Trying to hit the ground running if you know what I mean.
3. Your opinion, please.
4.I'm toying with rather to save to the cloud (worried about confidentiality and hacking) vs. external drives. What is your opinion in this area?
5.Where can I buy this that I can walk out with it today? We have a local Best Buy, but frankly I prefer a different vendor if you know of one. I think all Best Buy has are up to 12GB models, at least online.
