In 1999, I remember being in a $600/hour Davinci Resolve Suite at a mid-level NYC post house. Massive interface, massive hardware.

Now Davinci Lite works up to 2K for FREEE. FCPX is $300. (Alright, let's say $800 with a decent set of plug ins, etc).

If the new Mac Pro sets me back $3,000, so what?

The huge drop in cost coupled with the huge gain in capability, quality, and speed is simply amazing.

At the time, a Beta SP Camera was $75K. With glass, add another $15-$25--for a quality zoom lens. Today, a C300 with a fine set of glass is $25k. And the quality improvement is HUGE.

Folks, this is a great time to be in the video business. Maybe not the film business. But we have two edit systems, both on FCPX, and I can't wait to get a new mac pro. From my perspective, for my work, my clients, my budgets, it looks terrific.
