ADOBE PREMIERE PRO

Adobe Premiere Pro is one of the most popular professional video editing packages in active industry use today. Premiere Pro has been used on films and television projects at every budget level, often in combination with other editing and effects packages. To this day Premiere Pro remains a reliable and powerful creative tool in the arsenal of filmmakers across the globe. Notable films that have made use of Premiere Pro to one extent or another include Gone Girl, Superman Returns, The Social Network, Deadpool and the ultra-high budget Avatar.

In combination with other packages such as Adobe After Effects, Premiere Pro can for the rock-solid backbone of any visual media production project

RECOMMENDED HARDWARE FOR PREMIERE PRO:

CPU RECOMMENDATIONS
While editing together holiday footage from your smartphone is something just about any average home computer can do, using Premiere Pro for professional projects where every second has a real cost attached requires something much more specialized.

While video encoding, decoding and rendering tasks all benefit from having multiple CPU cores, many of the computing tasks that video editing software performs, especially during the actual live editing process, benefit from fast single-threaded performance. Which means that a good balance between core count and frequency is important.

Keep in mind that your intended workload also influences these decisions. If you are creating 1080p HD content a single CPU system with six cores and a turbo speed at or close to 4.0Ghz would be ideal. However, if we move into the realm of 4K content it may save more time overall to have a dual CPU system with many cores to reduce rendering time at the cost of single-threaded performance.

GPU RECOMMENDATIONS
GPUs are also playing a much greater role, with more and more effect and functions taking advantage of GPU acceleration. A serious video editor should not dip below the mid-range, which at present sits with cards such as the Nvidia GTX 1070. Traditionally the optimal recommendation has been for a professional Quadro card, but the latest generation of GTX cards have rewritten the book on that score.

RAM RECOMMENDATIONS
In terms of RAM, even 1080p projects will benefit from the breathing space 32GB can provide. Especially since longer project with lots of effects to preview can eat an enormous amount of memory and you might like to use other applications without having to close your editor. As the resolution climbs, so must the memory to accommodate all those extra pixel. For 4K 64GB is realistic and by the time we get to the rarified air of 8K footage we need a machine with 256GB or more.

STORAGE RECOMMENDATIONS
One of the most important aspects of a good video editing rig that is often overlooked is that of fast secondary storage. It does not help if you have fast, capacious RAM and a bundle of high-speed cores if they spend all their time waiting. It is therefore highly recommended that a good SSD be installed as the main drive that is to be used to host the operating system and the active project files. A good quality, high-capacity spinning drive is appropriate for archival storage once projects are complete. Although SATA drives are fast at their maximum, modern processors and RAM can handle even higher data throughput, so there is a real advantage to using a NVMe drive which transmits the SSD data over much faster PCIe.
