Does anyone have advice on which Mac Pro would be better to edit 4k with Final Cut? I have a budget for either the 8 or 12 core, but is there really a significant time saving in the workflow. I'm interested in special effects and rendering time saving. Thanks in advance for any response. (Hope I'm posting this in the right forum)
I am working with final cut 7 and an old G5, but my question relates to Final Cut Pro x and the new "Cylinder" Mac Pro as I want to upgrade. I will post this on the Final Cut Pro X. Thank You for responding,
FCP 7 can't edit 4K. It's also not multi-threaded. The biggest gain is the graphics card. It's also 32 bit so a significant amount of ram won't help either. If you are future proofing and can afford a 12 core machine, go for it, otherwise 8 cores is fine.
