I just got a Panasonic Gh4 camera and recorded some 4k footage with it.
For editing I have a Mac pro1,1 (2007):
- Dual-Core Intel Xeon - 2,66 GHz
- NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GT - VRAM:32768 MB
- 15 GB memory
I can´t even see the footage move correctly in order to see what I´ve got and start editing.
I don´t know much about hardware and before I start spending money trying to upgrade my old computer I´d like to know if it is going to work. If I could see it in real time I could then create proxis and work with them. apparently only 512 mbts Cards are compatible with my computer, these are the ones I know about:
- Ati radeon HD 4870 512 mbts
- Gforce-gt 120 512 mbts
- Gforce 8800 gt 512 mbts
- and Ati radeon 5770 1 GB (but I´m not sure if this one will work)
My question is: will buying one of these and some more Ram make a difference? I would truly apreciate some advice on this since I´m completely lost and my budget is very tight...
Thank you very much.
