First off you may want to consider a 2K transfer for several reasons. The transfer will cost more, and processing the 4K files will make your composite super slow, not to mention that you will only be able to see about 2K scaled down anyways depending on your monitor. Past that you would be able to work on the footage with any hard drive, unless you want to playback realtime (aside from cached preview). If you want to playback 2K realtime you are looking at an expensive system and also about 12 drives striped together (expensive too), 4K realtime realistically doesn't exist until you go out to film. Contact me directly if you need help with some visual effects or more advise.
PS most features are worked on in 2K still

What type of RAID (SCSI UW320, SATA2, Striped?, etc) would need to be purchased to handle the job? I've estimated 600GB is sufficient? We will add effects in Adobe After Effects, Digital fusion, Combustion, etc. and be working with proxy files. Also is it typical for the job to be given to us on a hard drive?
