I'm a filmmaker, and on my most recent project I was using some beefy footage shot on a GH5 at 4K 24p 8-bit 150mbps. My computer is decent enough, but it really struggled with some of the heavier editing sequences on the project, so I'm looking to upgrade a few parts to ensure that I can handle anything that gets thrown at me in future projects. I wanna ensure that the components I'm considering will actually improve my timeline/render performance though.
My current build is as follows:
i5-4570 (4 cores/4 threads @ 3.2 GHz)
16gb DDR3 @ 2133 MHz
GTX 1060 (6gb VRAM)
I'm considering upgrading to a Ryzen 3700X chip, (8 cores/16 threads @ 3.6 GHz) 16gb or possibly 32gb of DDR4 memory at a faster clock speed, and keeping the same GPU that I have currently.
This leaves me with a few questions for you fine people. Would upgrading my CPU in this manner have a significant effect on performance within Hitfilm Express? Is upgrading to 32gb of RAM pointless, or would it also improve performance? Would upgrading my GPU more effectively improve my experience?
Thank you for your time.
