[Joe Marler] "[Shawn Miller] "Wow, what level of compression and how many layers of Redcode Raw?"

That was three layers of 7:1 6k from a Red Weapon. However upon further testing it seems Premiere CC 2017.1 is actually faster than FCPX on the same 2015 iMac 27 for that codec. My recollection was a year or so ago FCPX was faster. Vashi was using Premiere from a year or more ago, so maybe today he wouldn't need that many cores. Premiere seems to have gotten considerably faster over the last 1-2 years, especially for H264."

That makes sense, the last time I used Redcode in Premiere, 4k was unusable at 4:1, but 8:1 was okay on a dual, quad core 2.4 Ghz PC running Windows 8 (it was a while ago).

[Joe Marler] "This shows how Apple cannot lollygag on performance issues, because the competition is always improving. While FCPX is generally very fast, it has less performance leeway than Premiere or any other editor. E.g, a slower version of Premiere is just a bit slower -- you can still get work done. By contrast a slow skimmer or Event Browser is almost unusable -- it essentially removes those features from the table."

All good points, thanks for sharing.
