About to tackle my first premiere job (CS6) after many years on Avid and FCP. The project is going to end up as 4 HD screens side by side, all showing different content in sync.
It will be about 8 minutes long.
Most of the footage will be 5k Epic at 29.97. Some shots will span 1 screen, some 2. My plan is to edit the files natively in premiere in a custom 7680x1080 RED sequence (4x1920), with 4 main tracks, each track representing one final display. I will then send the project to AE and render out each HD screen file using the output crop setting in the output templates.
So far in my testing I seem to be able to get ok playback at 1/16 res. and everything seems to work as planned. Anything to watch out for? I'm a little worried that performance might bog down after I'm well into the project.
I'm on an 8 core macpro with 8 gigs of RAM and Mercury CUDA support.
