Computer Requirements

Students in the Wake Forest graduate program in documentary film work on their projects with faculty members in the atrium of the new space on Brookstown Road in Winston-Salem on Wednesday, October 14, 2015.

DFP students are not required to purchase a computer as they have access to a multimedia lab. If you do choose to purchase your own computer, here are the specs we would recommend:

  • Mac computer with an Intel Core 2 Duo processor or better
  • 4GB of RAM
  • OpenCL-capable graphics card or Intel HD Graphics 3000 or later
  • 256MB of VRAM (512MB of VRAM recommended)
  • Display with 1280-by-768 resolution or higher
  • OS X v10.6.8 or OS X v10.7.4 or later
  • 500GB of disk space (at minimum or access to external hard drives)

Please contact Cindy Hill for additional information on software recommendations, etc.
