Hi all -- running MC 5.5 on a z400, Nitris DX, and editshare. It's time for an upgrade.
At the moment our cameramen are shooting a mix of Canon c300 and Red. In the near future we'll probably get a sony f7 or comparable for 4k broadcast work, and use our cameraman's Red for other projects.
Anyway I'm looking to upgrade our PC. Debating whether to splurge on a PC/MacPro system in the $4000-5000 range, or switch to a MacPro tower setup to save a few bucks. I recently found a MacPro Westmere 6core that would cost me about $1500 total to get it up to Avid spec, but would it be enough for 4k and Red raw work? I'll probably get a red rocket whichever system I go with.
