Thanks John!!

I will try 29.97 like you suggested!

You are correct, I AM able to edit 1080p on my system from our GH4 camera just fine. But before we got that camera, I was trying to edit 1080p footage from our DJI Phantom 3, and it was REAL jerky! It would play for about 4 seconds, then stutter like heck. Not sure if it was the codec or what.

I then assumed ALL 1080p would edit like that. But once I tried footage from the GH4 it was OK. Weird!

But we still need to move into the future so I appreciate the suggestions on newer Macs.

And even though I have a PC at home and love being able to dig into the backend, I agree that Macs "just work" for video applications! In fact, we still have an even older Mac that we still use for occasional Final Cut 7 projects!


Thanks again to everyone who commented on my post. I am now in a better position to move forward!
