#VidHuddle: File Storage
It may be a small piece in the video production process, but storage is absolutely vital. In the age of digital video, storage is not only necessary, but it's important to know at least the basics. Otherwise, you could lose your footage forever.
This week we discuss tips and tricks to storing and organizing your video footage.
Q1: How do your store video footage?
A1: At work it's a super fancy system from @NimbleStorage and I LOVE it. At home mainly externals and Amazon cloud #Vidhuddle
A1: On local hdd and 2 redundant 5TB external drives #vidhuddle
Q2: What are best practices for organizing footage?
A2: I like to get more organized with Premiere bins than I do folder bins. Usually separate out by selects and raw footage #VidHuddle
A2: I would probably use Premiere too. I just got a subscription to Adobe so that I can create more video content #VidHuddle
Q3: What are some cost effective external hard drive solutions?
A3: My go to is those @Seagate passports. They're handy and usually under $100 #VidHuddle
Q4: Solid State Drive (SSD) or Hard Disk Drive (HDD)?
A4: I mean, SSD is preferable if there's budget, but HDD work fine. I think the key is to have backup in the cloud or on tape #VidHuddle
Q5: How do you backup files? Cloud? Tape?
A5: I back up to the cloud. #VidHuddle
A5: Final versions are saved on 2 redundant externals plus compressed somewhat and burned to DVD-r's that are labeled and filed. #VidHuddle
Q6: What is your favorite file transfer service?
A6: I use @WeTransfer a lot. Haven't found anything else I like better #VidHuddle
A6: WeTransfer all the way, though also using a lot of Vimeo direct downloads #VidHuddle
