Advice needed for editing 4k h.264 / h.265 & 2.7k both 30fps
My hardware: Windows 10 64bit / 8 Gb RAM / **NVIDIA GeFORCE GTX1030 / AMD Ryzen 3 1300x Quad Core 3.5Ghz
** NOTE the GTX1030 has 2Gb of GDDR5 RAM - NOT DDR4 as fitted in some GTX1030 cards. Also the GTX1030 was released in 2017. I have installed the latest drivers but NVIDIA lists these as 'Gamer Ready' drivers.
Originally I built the above spec PC to edit 1080p video for YouTube.
Recently I've needed to edit drone footage recorded in either 4k or 2.7k 30fps (29.97fps)
The minimum specs for hitfilm ( from the website ) are as follows:
- Windows: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit), Microsoft Windows 8 (64-bit)
- Internet connection: Required for online activation
- Processor: 4th Generation Intel® Core™ Processors or AMD equivalent.
- RAM: 4GB (8 GB Recommended)
- Graphics card:
- NVIDIA GeForce 600 (Kepler) series (2012)
- AMD Radeon R5 240 (2013)
- Intel HD Graphics 5000 (GT3) (2013)
- Video memory 1 GB minimum (2GB or more required for 4K UHD)
I completely understand if my PC is not up to spec, as I mentioned earlier, originally I only intended to edit 1080p as at the time I didn't have access to a 4k / 2.7k cameras. * the cameras are actually DJI drones, Mavic 2 Pro and Mini.
Using a Hitfilm Template of '4k UHD @ 30fps', the problem I have is playing footage in the 'Trimmer' or 'Viewer' panels is EXTREMELY slow. I've tried changing the 'Playback Quality' of both panels to 'Fastest' but this makes no difference.
But according to Minimum System Requirements for Version 15.2 released on November 3, 2020, I should be able to work with 4k and 2.7k video footage ??
I'm a complete amateur and budget is very tight. I can upgrade part of my system but not all at once. Unless there's some 'setup' I can do when installing Hitfilm that would make a difference?
Is it possible to make a Proxy in Hitfilm 15.2?
