Just got Final Cut Pro about a month ago and still learning the ropes. Apparently editing off the system drive is a big no no when editing which I was unaware of. Now I only have a 7200rpm external that I can hook up over usb 2.0 on my base model 13 inch Macbook Pro. I'll be working to upgrade my computer soon, but can anyone tell me recommendations for the external I should be goin for? Firewire seems dead now, but would USB 3.0 be fine for editing, or should I connect with TB and be done with it? I would think those drives would be a lil more expensive so if USB3 is enough id rather go for that. The USB2 and my external now just doesn't seem like its working, seems way slower than off my system drive with my current setup. Also, would editing on an SSD like the MBPr rid editing of these problems, or is it still helpful to put the temp files on external?
