Re: Cards for 4K video-5DIV

"to shoot 4K video, then you want at least 128GB, which will give you just over 30 minutes of recording time."

 

Lets pretend that I will shoot a 29" minutes video piece.

With a 128Gb card I will have several small files for those 29" minutes?

With a 256 GB card I will have a unique files for those same 29" minutes?

 

Is there any real (dis)advantage for editing purposes, between a unique files and several files?

Or it is the same, when editing?

Thanks

There is no good way to answer that question.  It really depends upon the nature of the edit, and editing software itself.

As a general rule, computers process larger chunks of data than smaller chunks.  But, there are exceptions to that, too.

Da Vinci Resolve.

Is it harder to manage 4 smaller files or 1 big file?

Do i need to perform any kind of transcode in any case (1 file vs 4 smaller files)?

Da Vinci Resolve is not a product that I am familiar with.  I suggest that you simply exercise common sense, or just simply try it.
