AVID MC Minimum Required GPU Memory - stupid question???
on Apr 30, 2019 at 5:55:19 am

Noob question, give it to me straight please.

My 2014 MacBook Pro has a current GPU Memory: 1536 MB.
The Minimum Avid MC required GPU Memory is: 2044 MB.

Am I screwed here? Will Avid MC still work or do I need to go computer shopping? I understand you can't update the graphics card on Macs.

My current setup is: 3 GHz Intel Core i7 / Memory 16 GB / Version 10.13.6

Cheers,
Warren

From what I'm learning, I need to grab a faster mac or expect crashes and lag.

What do you think of this (anyone)?

'21.5‑inch iMac with Retina 4K display'

3.2GHz 6-core eighth-generation Intel Core i7 processor with Turbo Boost up to 4.6GHz
32GB of 2666MHz DDR4 memory
Radeon Pro 560X with 4GB of GDDR5 memory
1TB of Fusion Drive storage

Good enough for a home setup?

I had an older MacBook Pro with the same GPU. It'll work fine. Transcoding to offline res media...the typical Avid workflow, works great. It's a tad sluggish if you try to work with AMA links to camera masters...so just transcode and you'll be golden.

Great to hear. Thanks again, Shane. I new Apple setup for editing was going to cost me over 4 grand, money I don’t really have for that right now
