Time to build a new PC for the loft workshop with an all AMD build as we cannot locate any Nvidia Graphics cards anywhere and had to use a Radeon RX 580 GPU from one of our Linux machines.
The new machine will allow us to use the new video recording kit we have purchased to make new videos and be much faster for development and software compiling.
The old computer, a 4th Gen Intel i7 which was used to record this video had issues with frame drops and the Logitech Streamcam for the side video angle has problems with white balance from our led lights. We will fix this in future videos.
