General Notes

Processor

In our products the vast majority of the effects processing etc is carried out on the GPU. The CPU (central processing unit) administers the background operations within the application, therefore when choosing a processor we would recommend a lower core count and faster cores.  

Memory

In PFTrack It is important to provide enough RAM to perform processing tasks as well as caching a clip you are working on. In addition RAM will also dictate how much footage you can playback, the longer the clip and or higher the resolution the more RAM that will be required to cache the entire clip. The two amounts will need to be added together to give you the total amount of RAM required.

GPU

Both PFClean and PFTrack can utilize more than one GPU to obtain some fairly significant performance benefits. In the case of PFClean multiple GPU’s will yield faster effects processing and PFTrack can use a second GPU for background processing.

File Storage

It is recommended to store your project files etc on a fast drive such as an SSD as these are optimised for input / output operations. Especially useful when reading and writing metadata and loading media into your projects as it makes the application more responsive and increases your productivity.
