Will Raid 0 speed up my workflow?
Hi everyone, I'm currently editing on a laptop, it's not great but I can't afford to upgrade yet. So far everything is saved and edited on the laptop's internal hdd.
I'm going to film some interviews and I'm looking to purchase either a Atomos Ninja Blade or a Blackmagic Video Assist so I can break the 20 minute limit on my DSLR and get some nice dnxhd to edit in. Currently the thing that's going to swing my decision between the two is whether or not investing in HDDs is going to speed up my workflow. I could buy one or two and stick them in a caddy when they're not in the atomos. I heard a Raid 0 array will speed things up but is it really going to make much of a difference?
