Recommended system requirements

 

Working with high resolution camera systems, doing certain types of adjustments or doing many things simultaneously may put too much pressure on a minimum requirements system to work properly. In such cases and to optimize performance, please follow the recommendations below:

 

• Use processors with multiple cores, e.g. Intel Core i7 or better

• Have 16 GB of RAM or more

• Leave plenty of hard disk space free for your images

• A fast hard disk e.g. a Solid State Disk (SSD)

• A fast Graphics card from Nvidia or AMD e.g.  AMD Radeon 7950 (Mac) / R9 290 (Windows) with a minimum of 2Gb RAM.

• We recommend Mac PRO (Late 2013) containing the dual AMD D700 GPU
