Hey Premiere pros,
I am about to get a Fuji xt4. I want to edit F log footages with it and was wondering what computer specs I need? Can my laptop handle it?
Ar the moment I have...
CPU: i7-9750H hexa core @2.60 GHz
RAM: (about to upgrade to 32 GB)
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 4GB
Storage: 500GB SSD
Thank you in advance!
Performance in Premiere Pro would depend on several factors. Let us know the frame size, frame rate & the compression type that you have used in XT4. Also, what all effects will you be using on these clips?
Frame size: 4K
Frame rate: 24 FPS and 60 FPS
Format: H.265 HEVC
Effects will be done in After Effects, but color grading will be done in Premiere pro.
The length of the video will be around 10 minutes, but not longer than 20 minutes.
Are my computer specs enough for this? If not, then I guess Proxies would be an option.

H.265 is an unfriendly edit format, highly compressed.
Most likely, you need to use proxies or convert.
Thank you, Otherwise my laptop will be able to handle it, right?
I mean, what is more important between CPU, GPU and RAM to edit 4K F Log footages?
Like Ann says, any trouble you may run into is caused by h.265.
You need the beefiest of all systems to run this natively, without transcoding. If you choose to transcode the footage either to an intermediate codec used for editing (e.g. ProRes 422) or you adopt a proxy workflow (which basically creates low resolution editable versions that you replace with the source clips for final rendering).
Hope this helps.
Yes! This definitely helps, thank you! What proxy workflow do you recommend besides ProRes422?
Also, when I render it (export it), can my laptop handle it? Because when it renders, it renders 4K right?
