    Red dot in timelime where I'm under specifications

    Hi,

    I started working with Prores C4K HQ files and when I use Effect cc in secondary color correction I get red dot in timeline. Where I'm under specifications?

    PC / System configuration below is current

    Regards

    I believe that is drive speed. Even standard single SSD drives may not be fast enough for Prores HQ 4K, at times, with additional FX processing. Some large fast Raid drive combinations and NVME drives should be fine though. For such material and especially for grading/FX finishing I offload the conform onto internal NVME 2TB drives, 1 or which is for render and cache only.

    Are there any other colors? Yellow would indicate the system is not powerful enough, and blue would indicate the drives (or the drive connection) are not fast enough.

    No just the red color and allclips are on NVME Pcie3 drive and I have the rendering drive on a sata III port. If I render I have no problems but is bit annoying.

    I would move this to an NVME drive, it will at least speed up rendering considerably. You may find your problem is ram - I would double that ram, at least for working in 4K. Possibly too, your Prores HQ is 50/60p? Then you are dealing with 8 x the bandwidth of HD (@ 25/30). ProresHQ, like DNxHD/R, is an optimised post codec that should have little demand on the cpu but in dealing with 4K and larger bandwidths, ram can easily be eaten up quickly for FX and processing.
