Bonjour,
Je cherche la configuration pc minimale afin de pouvoir faire des montages à partir de vidéos 4k (sur gopro hero 8).
J'aimerais savoir quel logiciel vous utilisez également.
Merci à vous !

If you use a Windows PC, then a current CPU (i5 or larger) with 16GB RAM and a graphics card that supports HEVC (this codec must be installed in Windows 10!)
Depending on the video editing program used, the SW manufacturer recommends graphics cards so that their hardware support can be used! Be sure to pay attention! So with Magix Video Delux I cannot use the HW support of my NVIDIA, under PowerDirector I can ...
Is that bad? Well, if it is not a bug, then for a 10 minute 4K60FPS video it means up to 8 hours when exporting to Magix or 15-20 minutes to PowerDirector ... (my CPU is an i7 5820k with 12 cores that is rendering is 100% busy ...)!

Bonjour Oliver,
Je pense prendre un un PC avec ces caractéristiques :
AMD Ryzen 5 3550H
Carte graphique GeForce GTX 1650
16GO ram
Ssd 512 go.
Est-ce que ce sera suffisant pour du montage en 4k ??

Merci par avance

The PC HW will certainly be able to handle 4K - I would only use a 1660 with the graphics card!
See NVIDIA HEVC matrix:

Now the video player and the video editing program is important too!
Good players are: https://www.divx.com/ or https://sourceforge.net/projects/mpcbe/

with windows 10 the HEVC codec must also be installed:

Good video editors are: MOVAVI, FILMORA, POWERDIRECTOR ....

Addendum: the 512GB SSD as a system drive ...
For data, a fast HDD with at least 2TB - better more!

The PC should also have an fast SD card reader (if extern USB 3.1)! The GoPro sometimes twitches and is not always recognized under Windows ...
