Basic 4K Video Editing system only....no gaming

Just want to edit 4K footage from a Sony FDR-AX1 4K camcorder using Sony Vegas Pro 12 which came with the camera. Any thoughts on building a budget system from scratch to edit and someday use a 4K monitor? Have a 2560 x 1440 monitor now. Don't do any gaming at all, just video editing in 4K now in place of HD for personal use.

  1. It really depends on your budget:

    Expensive-Recommended-Budget
    4930K - 4770K - 4670K
    32 GB - 16 GB - 8 Gb

    How much are you looking to spend?
  2. whats ur budget and country of origin
  3. Also, how much patience do you have?
    If it's only for personal video editing, maybe you can handle waiting a couple of hours for a video to be ready, or maybe you want the video to be finished in less time than it's playtime.
    How fast do you want the PC to be?
  4. I'm in the U.S. My budget is around $1500 or so. I have been going through hell with my old system just trying to play back the files from the Sony FDR-AX1. Pretty damn choppy regardless of what PC Video player I try, and then I need to edit those 4k files.
  5. I've been editing for many years so I have a lot of experience using several NLE's. I can walk away from a project as it renders even if it takes and hour to use Twixtor in Sony Vegas Pro to get 20 seconds of super slo mo video.:)

    My current system is a Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q6700 @ 2.66GHz 4 GB of RAM 64-bit operating system. Using a Nvidia GeForce GT 440 graphics card. Also using Windows 7 Home premium.
  6. alright do u need windows. keyboard. monitor?

  8. Ice clocks build is nice but i think it's terribly lacking in space. 4k videos will eat through that 1tb pretty damn quick. I'd consider a bigger storage drive.

  10. I appreciate all the feedback for my setup for 4K video editing.

    iceclock, I do not need windows, keyboard, monitor.

    You feel confident that setup will be able to handle the 4K files using Sony Vegas Pro 12 then?

    I did live chat with a nvidia rep last night and the rep said to use the Quadro lineup of video cards. Differing opinions on what to use I see?

    Or should I just go for broke and use the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 Ti? I only want to do this once, and make it last for at least 3-4 years as I've had my current system for 4-5 years.
  11. well quadros are nice but will kill ur budget.

    u could get the 780ti or 780 and be happy with that.

    how much more u ready to invest on the 1500.
  12. $2000 is my limit. I just need to know the new setup is not going to choke while editing the 4k files. I made the move to HD camcorders almost 8 years ago, and now want to future proof by going 4K.

    I find the 4K to be sharper than HD in this photo I took. ;)
  13. it wont choke 4physical cores+4logical cores is the stuff my man. nice camera.

    heres a better one with 6 cores. 80$ over but we.

  14. iceclock,

    Thanks. Hoping to get some great footage this weekend shooting track & field with the new camera.

    I really appreciate your feedback. This is the info I was after by coming to this site, since the PC stuff is not my top expertise. After checking those video card recommendations I will make sure that my choice includes the ability to output 4K video and not 2560x1600 as the max output. Might as well have that covered since I know I will pull the trigger on a 4k monitor this year as Dell announced the lower pricing on their new 4k monitors.
  15. well the 4 gig 680 is a powerful card and will get that done

  17. thats discontinued the 7950 and nvidia known for better processing power in video editing.

    also best do 2x8gb so later can add another 16 gigs of ram.

    and gonna require more power sir.

    but good try

    The 7950 is actually a great card for the price, definitely a better value than the 680.

    The X79 platform is optimized for quad channel RAM, and since there are 8 slots, an upgrade is still possible.

    Also both PSUs are adequate. There's only a 4 amp difference on the 12V rail
  19. Nvidia is known for quadro sand high end cards. Also the 680 is stronger in video apps than the discontinued 7950
  20. I'll be trying to put something together this month with all the info that has been provided.
  21. Editing the 2 builds I would go with something like this.

    Did the 4930k jump in price when i made this build or is it just me o.o

    Quad channel set for memory at 1866mhz is nicer with a x79. And I think wouldn't a gtx 770 be better then a 680? And this case has a window. I think WD blacks would be better and more reliable as with a samsung EVO SSD
  22. I would also consider playback after your project. If your editing a 4k video that will be played for a presentation on another computer, that computer will also need to have a nice setup. I love shooting 4k video projects but technology hasn't quite caught up to its resolution yet at the consumer level. You can edit/shoot a beautiful project and chances are you will only have 2k resolution out of. So you need to measure your return on investment to see if your actually receiving what your goal is.
  23. Well, couple things just came up so my budget will be no more than $1500 again.

    I already have a couple of external drives with 1TB each which is enough to get me going unless there needs to be a particular brand that works better with 4K files?

    iceclock: I'm going to concentrate on the processor and the video card, so I can't really say I'm going with one build or another.

    wshinn: I understand what you are saying, I know most of the time I will be dropping down to 1080p for presentation, and I knew that going in before I bought the camera. Just want to be future proof for down the road.
  24. alright.

    closer to ur budget :)
  25. Ya iceclock thats a good system its close to mine - I have a AMD FX 9500 CPU. My only suggestion, if your able to, is speed up the ram to 1800 or 2100 for video editing. It helps speed up the buffer speed.
  26. good remark :)

    with 16 gigs of ddr3 2133mhz
  27. So when you guys do a build like what you have been showing me do you really order all the parts from the different suppliers? Or one could get Frys electronics to just price match if they have the item in stock.
  28. you can pricematch at frys that would work. i do beleive they have price matching :)

    usually i just buy from one place and pricematch it.
  29. One other thing that I've found through research is that apparently video editing programs work better in windows 8 then 7. I will actually be receiving my new editing system Monday that I selected all the pieces for and had pugent systems put it together. The system has windows 8.1 on it.

    http://professional-video-editing-software-review.toptenreviews.com and http://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/global/windows-8-1-compatability.html will help with what I am talking about.
  30. wshinn,

    My son was telling me the same thing about using windows 8 for editing, though I haven't been one that cares for it after spending a bit of time on my wife's pc with windows 8.

    Are you going to be editing 4k video with your new editing system? If so I would be interested in what you selected.

    iceclock: I really appreciate you taking the time for all the different builds you have posted. Hoping to get started by this weekend with my system.......might just spurge for the GeForce GTX 780 Ti video card.:D
  31. excellent glad to help dude if u require more help im here :)

  34. Why not get a workstation graphics card instead like a quadro or firepro since you're not gaming?
  35. Yes I shoot with a canon 1D and capture everything at 4k. The depth of field at 4k is awesome. However, everything is down-ressed because the technology lagging behind the consumer world.

    This will enable you to edit at 4k and render everything very quickly. This setup will also allow you to work with the Adobe CC line very effectively, including using the Red Giant suite in AE. By the way youll need atleast an 800W PSU for this.

    Check out the Seagate Desktop HDD.15 ST4000DM000 4TB. A bit slower @ 5900 rpm, but a great price. Got nice review in Tom's that you can read.

    Can you recommend info about the workstation vs "gaming" GPU's? My looking seems to show that workstation GPUs seem to fit into two categories: Quite inexpensive and scary costly. How useful are the lower end ones, and for a few more dollars would a high end gaming GPU (i.e. gtx780) provide the video editing type graphics needs for AfterEffects, etc?
    As you can tell, I'm having a bit of trouble wrapping my brain around this issue.
    Thanks

    That was mentioned earlier in the thread, and the quadro cards are very expensive. I'll find out soon if the EVGA GeForce GTX 780 Ti Superclocked 3GB Video Card will handle the work load from my Sony FDR-AX1 4K camcorder. I'm sure my son will do some gaming on it, maybe I'll get some interest in pc gaming having a good setup.

    You'll need an 800W PSU if you choose SLI*


    wshinn, Thanks for sharing your setup. Full frame 4K is fantastic I would imagine with your Canon 1D!
  41. the 8core is nice yes but in video editing the 4770k still wins in speed.
