Video content creators run a race against time while working on content, therefore computer performance is crucial for video creators. For those who are already working with video editing software or want to become video creators, today, we have organized some information about how RAM (Random Access Memory) and SSD (Solid State Drive) affect content creation.
Memory plays an important role for video creators who rely on fast and efficient computers for video editing. Generally speaking, the requirements for RAM, when using image and video editing software, are higher compared to requirements for most other computer software. When editing images, insufficient memory capacity often leads to freezes or lags, resulting in longer waiting times. In addition, the memory required for your task depends on factors such as software, the format of materials, and multiple applications in use. The computer runs faster with more RAM, enabling a smoother editing process without wasting any inspired moment.
The following table shows the different RAM capacities and the actual impact of RAM on video content creation.
|8GB||To perform video editing with a resolution lower than 1080p using 8GB RAM, it is required to close other programs.|
|16GB||To perform 1080p or 4K video editing smoothly using 16GB RAM, it is recommended not to run background tasks or open other applications simultaneously.|
|32GB||You can smoothly perform 1080p or 4K video editing with 32GB RAM while running background tasks with multiple applications opened.|
|64GB||You can perform 8K video editing smoothly with 64GB RAM.|
We recommend that video creators decide on the appropriate memory capacity according to their working requirements..
A friend of ours who specializes in video creation once had a mix-up. At that time, this friend had several projects on hand. Using a capacity of only 1TB, he spent much time on material importing and faced a problem such as a computer lagging during the creation process. At that time, he did not know the exact reason for the low speed and he thought that his computer had reached the end of its work life. After the projects were finished, he replaced the old SSD with a new 8TB SSD. Thus, as a result, the computer lag issue during the rendering was solved.
Without getting professionals at the time, our friend was almost rushed to the store to get a new computer.
This story clearly shows us what affects video editing performance. For those who have been encountering similar situations, we have prepared information to help you to solve the issue. Two factors with SSD significantly affect video creators: the read/write speed and capacity. Firstly, in terms of read/write speed, the read speed is related to file opening time, while the write speed is related to material importing time. Secondly, larger capacity means larger storage space for more files and materials. Moreover, SSDs with larger capacities are usually more durable, enhancing stability during creation.
We suggest that creators select an SSD with a large capacity and good read/write performance under available budgets to satisfy requirements for the creation and avoid the loss of valuable inspiration while waiting for the materials to import.
Regardless of RAM or SSD specifications, you can see that the Large Capacity is the most fundamental and extensive requirement for creators. T-CREATE brand under Team Group Inc. is aimed to provide creators with large-capacity RAM and SSD and to develop high-stability products. In the current environment, everyone has the opportunity to become a Creator. We hope the world will see your artwork.
