The Central Park is one of the most favorite tourist attractions for many years. However, you should not be surprised to know that New Yorker also loves their parks and definitely Central Park is one of them. It is also one of the most visited park in the United States. As far as the numbers of the visitors is concerned, on an average well over 40 million people visits this park every year from all over the world. If you are not familiar with this park, feel free to check out the Wikipedia page for additional information. If you are planning to visit the park, feel free to check out their official website prior scheduling your visit just to be on safe side.
Personally, I had been there so many times over the years. However, this time around I planned to visit the park and grabbed my GoPro along with me for the sole purpose of making a video. Nothing specific, just wander around the park as my heart desires and simply shoot pretty much anything and everything.
The Central Park is quite big and visiting every single spot within the park on any given day is almost impossible task to complete. So, I walked and walked as much as I could have. While editing the video, I tried not to remove any scene from the video and I ended up having an hour long (almost) video. Generally my videos are not all that long.
After editing the video, I came to realize that encoding a 4K video of that length on any average computer is not the most pleasing computing experience you can have. Especially if your computer does not have a good air flow. Though I have a quite capable desktop computer, I never built it with an intention to encode 4K video on regular basis. I built a computer that can easily perform lots of office or web development realted tasks simultaneously without getting overheated or requiring lots of cooling fans.
I chose In Win CJ712 mATX case which is fairly small in size and has a low profile optical disc drive bay (it’s a must for me). An MSI B365 Chipset based motherboard with Intel i7 8700 processor that has 32GB of RAM which is more than enough for my day to day needs. For graphics, I am using nVidia Quadro P620 for multi-monitor support. I am using a Samsung M.2 NVME SSD as my boot drive and another Crucial SSD as my data storing drive. I am quite happy with my build but it was not just meant to be for video encoding that generate lots of heat.
