Hi, I was wondering if any of you uses any type of cloud storage to backup important video files in the cloud? I was using Dropbox but now that I've reached my free gigs limit, I'm not sure I should go for the paid version. Especially as I recently discovered Copy, from Barracuda. They offer 15 Gb for free (+ another 5 Gb if you follow this referral link: https://copy.com?r=yx223v ) I've heard people who referred a lot got up to 1 Tb for free...they say it's a limited time offer, so you might want to hurry. At the moment, I'm only saving the important files for every project. This is just in case my main backup (on a physical hard drive) fails at some point. You never know, better be careful! Is anyone else using a similar solution? I'd love to know! Thanks
I was wondering where to store/backup all my massive raw video data on a budget? And I donâ€™t want to use any cloud services.
Hello, Everyone. I am debating whether to jump into the Canon 5D Mark III Raw video capture world, but as I have been researching the topic and equipment further I am now wondering how much data storage and backup will be necessary for larger files. With estimated calculations of Raw footage being about 7GB per minute, I wanted to ask others who are shooting Raw how much storage space are you finding you need? Terabytes seem like they would get chewed up quite quickly, so how many are people working with? 4TB? 16TB? 32TB? And for what size projects? 5min? 30min? 90min? Futhermore, data storage seems like it could vary dramatically depending on what editing format you end up converting the Raw footage into. Up till now I've only used ProRes in Final Cut, but I am also seriously entertaining cineform. It seems to have excellent feedback for a compressed file format, and would probably save space compared to ProRes, as the Raw>DNG>TIFF>ProRes conversion for editing would require a lot of intermediate files, and storage space. Finally, I also wanted to ask about computer performance when shooting Raw. Since I will probably have to invest in an external backup system to get an adequate amount of storage space, I have started to entertain using a RAID system. Do people find they need a dedicated RAID setup for editing speed now that they shoot Raw instead of H264? Or is a RAID setup really overkill at this point from a editing performance standpoint? Thanks so much. I look forward to the responses.
