    Need your help with Testing 4K video on your computer

    Hi 

    Add to my previous post that I am looking to buy a good strong computer that can handle a work with 4k video that will come 90% from Gh5 I was able to get a sample video from a friend that has Gh5

    all I ask from you is that you download this file and try to do the following on your computer 

    1. import it as a link and try to play it with full quality 

    2. if this works then layer it on the timeline with 5 video layer and put a picture into picture effect on every layer and change the video size so that you can see all the layers when you play the video 

    3. and if all that works smooth try to render at DNX-HR HQX Mxf and see if your CPU or CPUs get to 100%

    now what I am hoping to get from this test is to see if an old Z820 or Z620 or Z440 or any pc with I7 or I9 can hanel this work. 

    and if your pc was able to work with that file then please post your computer specification as for:

    1.model number if this is a brand computer
    2. Cpu model and version and if you have one or 2 CPUs
    3. size of your RAM
    4. video card model and RAM size
    5. Hard disk model, type as for SSD and size

    so that I will know what to order.

    as I want to buy a used pc for this work as for budget reason still I want to buy one that will be able to do this work 

    I was able to test it on a new I7 7800X with 32Gig or ram and Nvidia 1080Ti card and on that computer, I was able to do it all with no problem only when i get to the render part the cpu get to 100% 
    and at just play the video with 5 layer it was on 60 ~ 70% 

    here is the file to download. https://mab.to/Ft9vyIv4kox this is and 8.5Gb file

    you can open a new project at 4K CDI 3996x2160 25P as this video is in Pal 25p

     

    p.s

    I may say that if you tried it all and your pc didn't manage to do all that it also can help if you can give me the info on that pc so that I will know that this model is not good for this work.

     

    Thanks for your help

    Re: Need your help with Testing 4K video on your computer

    My guess is no one is going to download 8.5GB. I would suggest you come up with a way to offer a shorter smaller file, which could then be joined end on end on end to make a large file or some other method that lets the file be expanded by the end user in a consistent way but stil represents the type of file you will be working with.

    yes this is a big file but I have uploaded it to a service that gives a very high speed as for upload and downloads if I was able to download it fast and I am from Israel and we have bad lines here than in the US or anywhere in the world where you have a decent internet line this will not take more than a few minutes

    Thats 10 streams of media playing in realtime. I imagine drive speed (even SSD) maybe the limiting factor.

    I certainly wouldn't be expecting older Z820s to handle in.

    I'd be looking at an HP Z8 for that sort of workload.

    as I have told you in my test on I7 7800x with 1 normal SSD hard it run with no frame drop this is way I do think that an old z820 with dual Xeon and SSD disk may work

    The footage has very little movement in it so its hard to detect any frame drops You have to rely on the yellow red timeline indicators.

    Oh and its UHD 3840 not 4K for clarity
