We are going to edit Avchd videos and want export them to several Internet platforms -- using H.264 in most cases. The length of the films is from 3 up to 15 minutes. We prefer linux Operating systems.
What are your hardware recommendations? Her are some thoughts -- please comment whatever is your own experience.
... seems to me to be most important. What is better?
c) does it make sense to buy processors with less cores but more threads, or does physical cores outperform processors with more threads?
2. Graphic Card
We are not going to play games or use 3d effects.
a) could a graphic card increase the rendering speed? (Which card are good supported under linux?)
b) are Intel-On-board solutions as bad as some people say?
a) I'm usually configuring raid0. Seems fast enough. Or is it better to configure work-flow with different hard disks?
a) I'm not very satisfied with recent ubuntu, since unity is creating a much higher load without launching any programs. So I switched to Mint with cinnamon. What distro would you prefer?
b) Is a KDE faster?
Thx for replays!
