    Hey man great video thx!. I got a pc with no ssd and gpu…i got 2 internal 128gb and 1 external 2TB disk with now one 4gb ram stick (i ordered another 3 to make total of 16gb – got them cheap😄). Will this be suffice for youtube videos editting at 1080p – using win movie maker? My 3 stick rams haven't arrived yet wondering if need ssd and gpu too…kinda on a budget😅 thx man!

  3. Im editing 1080p videos on 2GB ram and its a living hell everything freezes on sony vegas cant do nothing,would getting a 8gb of ram or 16gb of ram be better?

    32gb is the minimum for premier pro according to adobe . The way you calculate is depending on the number of cores you have on your computer you should balance the amount of ram 4gb ram on a quad core is 1gb per core. It's not just about rendering it's about the entire system .You can edit on 8gb but how smooth does the system work ? What about playback? What about adding more transitions and color ? None of those things are answered in this video. Check out this link >>>https://www.pugetsystems.com/recommended/Recommended-Systems-for-Adobe-Premiere-Pro-143/Hardware-Recommendations

    2019 update: I usually have a couple chrome tabs open for utility purposes like downloading sfx or music on the spot and I use at LEAST two video tracks on vegas. I tend to run low on RAM at three video tracks OR 4K using 15 out of my 16 Gb and vegas sometimes crashes. I'm about to upgrade to 32. Is it necessary? NO. Is it helpful? Probably. I also tend to make thumbnails while vids render so yee.

    Nice video. I'm looking to do 4k video editing. The system came with one single channel 16gb stick so I added a second 16gb for dual channel as well as doubling the ram. Should be good paired with an i7 8700.

    I am planning to upgrade my laptops ram from 4gb to 8gb. What's better 2 4gb ram (costs less) or 1 8gb ram??

    Hi there, looking at the Huawei matebook x pro with 8GB ram, 256GB storage space? Will that be fine to run Adobe premier pro and photoshop/light room?

  9. MR SOO 2 QUESTIONS : (1.)  SO 4 GB of Ram is just FINE?  (2.) ALSO IS THERE a CHEAP – OR- FREE EDITING PROGRAM THAT YOU RECOMMEND OR LIKE OUTSIDE OF ADOBE?  THANKS

    What about if you're shooting 4K, then bringing that footage into a 1920 x 1080 timeline (shrinking in down), is that considered editing 1080 or 4K? How much RAM would be the sweet spot for that scenario?

  11. Grace Vue

    Hey, a Surface "Pro" has 4GB RAM, so… that's good enough.

  12. Crimson Koba

    Thanks a lot for this video. All the laptops in my country always come with 8gb, and I was worried about performance for video editing. Everybody recommends 16gb, but I will just use my laptop for offline editing or 1080p footage, no fancy stuff like after effects or 4k, hell, I think I won't even render most of my projects on my laptop.

  13. Gordon Soo

    8Gb is pretty much the sweet spot for 1080p Video editing
