ssd, hd orginazing
My situation about drives is like this:
i am rendering with afters effects and commonly Fcpx (1 hour videos).
7.200 rpm WD Red 3 TB for my media (footage)
10.000 rpm WD 500 gb
256 GB Samsung Pro
Now, how must i organize the hard drives? in many articles i read SSD as scratch but in a video Larry Jordan says SSD for system (with other several articles as yours). i confused...
WD 10.000 rpm for iOS
256 GB SSD as Scratch
WD 10.000 rpm as Scratch
256 GB SSD for iOS
if 2nd way is not much slower then 1st one, i will choose 2nd, so i will have speedy system with sad.

fcpx doesn't use a dedicated scratch disk - it renders it's scratch media to the project folder. you'd probably get a slight speed advantage while editing (not while rendering) from the ssd or the wd-drive - but it should not matter too much as long as you don't playback multiple video-streams at the same time (e.g. in the multiclip-editor)
after effects is usually slowed down by the cpu or gpu - so i'd use the ssd for the OS (which, btw., is called OSX) and other software.
