We are here to help you find the right tools for the job - start with either the software you use or the work you do for a recommended hardware configuration.

Find By the Software You Use

Cinema 4D

After Effects

Houdini

DaVinci

Unreal Engine

Nuke

Find By the Work You Do

Video Editing and Motion Graphics​​

3D Modeling, Animation, and Rendering​

Visual Effects, Compositing, ​​and Finishing

CPU

8-16 cores / 4+GHz

Medium core counts and higher clock speeds are recommended.

GPU

Entry graphics

GPU-based codec support (QuickSync in some Intel CPUs and NVENC in all NVIDIA GPUs) helps with some media formats, so low-end GPUs are sufficient. Move up to higher-end GPUs when using effects and color grading.

Memory

32-128 GB RAM

32–64GB for video editing, 64-128GB for motion graphics.

Storage

Determined by project scale

Determined by project scale; multi-camera shoots with proxy workflow can require massive amounts of storage. Offline editing uses lower compression files, so size is more important than speed.

CPU

6-8 cores / 3.5+ GHz​

3D modeling applications tend to be single-threaded and therefore favor clock speed over number of cores, so choose a high-frequency (at least 3.5GHz) 6- or 8-core processor.​​
​Rendering applications tend to be multi-threaded and can scale with higher CPU core counts, so if rendering on the same machine, choose a higher core count CPU while maintaining clock speed.

GPU

NVIDIA RTX A5000 class or above

Consider whether the renderer has GPU-accelerated features or is a GPU-only renderer. Either way, most can take advantage of two GPUs while some can scale with multiple GPUs.

Memory

32-64 GB RAM

A good rule of thumb is 3-6GB per core.

Storage

Minimum 1 TB

Determined by project scale but min 1 TB. Amount of texture data inflates storage requirements.

CPU

12-18 cores / 3 GHz

VFX applications tend to be multi-threaded so performance scales with core count. Choose a CPU with at least 12-18 cores and a base frequency of 3 GHz (based on current gen CPUs)​.

GPU

NVIDIA RTX A5000 class or above

Some software supports dual GPU while others can scale with multiple GPUs.

Memory

64-96 GB RAM

At least 64GB but 96GB or higher recommended.

Storage

Minimum 1 TB

Determined by project scale but min 1 TB. VFX workflows need higher-speed storage systems due to uncompressed media.

AI: Expanding The Limits of Creativity

Humans are tool users, and we’ve long relied on tools to help make art. From painting with pigments made from animal fat and dried fruits to using a chisel to carve marble stones to creating virtual 3D environments with Unity or Unreal, we’ve always found new and innovative ways to express ourselves. One of the newest tools at our disposal is generative artificial intelligence.
