Finally got my new editing rig put together and got through a small backlog of content I needed to put out. This is the rig that I will be using to edit everything on my specialized product photography account on @ as well as the sports videography work I produce over at @.
When editing videos, I usually need four Adobe Creative Cloud applications running at the same time. My old rig could only handle 2 applications at a time before it starts to crawl in speed. This new rig has been able to crush 4K and 1080p video editing with Adobe Premiere and After Effects running plus I can run Lightroom and Photoshop all at the same time.
Occasionally I’ll get a gaming session in and I’ll play some Battlefield 4, PUBG, or GTA 5.
