Is it worth it to get a new Mac Pro? I produce mostly 30 sec spots in Motion, which is ram and gpu intensive, right? Only uses 1 core at a time? Or should I hedge on Motion 5 going multiple core - my firm can prob afford it, but don\\\\\\\'t want to piss $$$ away - already have an octocore, but they only help in compressor - right? Or am I woefully misinformed?
Well, if you're going to buy another machine anyway, I'd say go ahead and get a 12-core. Because then you're sitting pretty if/when the next version of Motion is fully multi-core capable, you'll have those additional 4 cores available to your QCluster until then, and you'll be investing in current-version technology instead of being one version behind from day one.
