Swap File on separate drive benefit for Audio/Video editing?

in macOS edited January 2014
If one had two drives (exactly the same) on two separate channels .....

would it benefit to put the swap file on the 2nd drive?

specifically: would it benefit when doing intensive I/O applications like Audio / Video Editing

    If you're swapping, you're already dead.

    Your Mac worked when Apple sold it to you; don't screw with it.

    Isn't swapping something that's happens anyway? I don't quite understand it, but it has something to do with virtual memory, right? Or no?

    Kickaha and Amorph couldn't moderate themselves out of a paper bag. Abdicate responsibility and succumb to idiocy. Two years of letting a member make personal attacks against others, then stepping aside when someone won't put up with it. Not only that but go ahead and shut down my posting priviledges but not the one making the attacks. Not even the common decency to abide by their warning (afer three days of absorbing personal attacks with no mods in sight), just shut my posting down and then say it might happen later if a certian line is crossed. Bullshit flag is flying, I won't abide by lying and coddling of liars who go off-site, create accounts differing in a single letter from my handle with the express purpose to decieve and then claim here that I did it. Everyone be warned, kim kap sol is a lying, deceitful poster.

    Now I guess they should have banned me rather than just shut off posting priviledges, because kickaha and Amorph definitely aren't going to like being called to task when they thought they had it all ignored *cough* *cough* I mean under control. Just a couple o' tools.

    Don't worry, as soon as my work resetting my posts is done I'll disappear forever.
