Hard Disk Setup for Video Editing

Dear Forum.

 

My name is Tom Woods and I was hoping that you may be able to advise me or point me in the right direction, in regards to the question below….

 

  : ) Im not sure if you are in this area or not, my apologies to you if this is the case.. Here goes..

 

I’m thinking of getting Adobe Production Premium installed where ill be using Photoshop, After Effects, and Premier Pro, and need some advice on my current Disk Setup to maximize performance to work with editing HD 1080i video.

 

 

My question is;

 

“Which of my internal ‘Disks’, do I assign the following processes to, these processes are;

 

Photoshop: SCRATCH DISK

 
After Effects:
DISK CACHE


Premier Pro:
SCRATCH DISK Captured Video  / SCRATCH DISK Captured Audio  / SCRATCH DISK Video Previews  / SCRATCH DISK  Audio Previews   

 

Premier Pro: MEDIA CACHE FILES / DATABASE

 

And finally the recorded Video ‘parts’ ready for editing, and the ‘previews’, and then the ‘saved project file’.

 

 

My current Disk setup is:

 

C: SSD – 90GB (quite full)

 

D: SSD – still considering size to purchase

 

E: SSD – still considering size to purchase

 

F: HDD – 500 GB (currently used for all Video Parts and all work)

 

 

*Also, for drives D & E, what ‘SIZE’ in GB would they need to be for assigning the Scratch, Cache and other files mentioned above? (when i purchase them)*

 

 

If you can help me out with this it would be totally amazing, im really stuck and finding internet advice very unclear..

 

I appreciate you will be busy but I thought I would try here first for some help! Thank you so much for reading this so far…

 

My Best regards to you

 

Timmy
