Everybody likes to be efficient, but this only as in form pressed word. In several blogs i have pointed at freedom and functionality of free software products for a computer. As efficiency starts with a mindset free’d from corporated influence, blown clean from the crap, think about an audio video workstation. Hmmm, 64gigs of ram, software for 10000 bucks, high speed processor…….
Really? Working here with a rig for 500 bucks, opensource operating system for zero bucks. Full 64bit compiled, included with all av conversion and work tools compiled for 64 bit and multicore operation. Cutting a video like 2x 90min took around 2GB of memory, so it works with 8GB fully. Conversion backends are also using GPU and CPU conversion what makes this pretty fast in result. As everything is compiled with GNU GCC, i can access the unleashed power from the AMD six cylinder for less bucks.
Everything you need, is a clear open mind for ideal solutions. Choice between you use the stuff or let the stuff use you.
