iMac - external drive to run with Final Cut
I am an movie editor, and i'm going to buy the new iMac 27" when it comes out. (been waiting 6 months now)
Does anybody know about it's possible to run your events from Final Cut Pro X from an external disc?. So its like all the events are saved onto the external disc?

I setup a software RAID-0 with the 2 drives in the enclosure and it is very fast. Disk speedtest shows ~325 MB/s read and ~375MB/s write. I would think that would be fast enough for Final Cut.
The only downside is the risk of data loss due to the RAID striping so you'll want a backup method of some sort assuming your data is important to you.
With all that said you can setup in RAID-1 (mirrored) and you'll see slower writes but should see similar read speeds. And your data will be safer.
