Minimum System Requirements to Edit 4K on a Mac?
on Oct 15, 2013 at 1:26:59 am

Hey Everyone,

I've got about $3000 to spend on a new mac. I'm currently editing 1080p but new 4K cameras are right around the corner so I want to future proof myself. I'm trying to hold out and buy a low level new-type Mac Pro when they come out. But I don't know if 3 grand will be enough so I'm looking at the current iMacs as well. Can anyone give me advice on what will effectively edit 4K (like processor wise and memory wise and graphics card wise., etc?) Maybe the current iMac will do it. I'm not sure. Maybe a low level version of the new Mac Pro will do it, I'm not sure. I'm an artist, not a technician.
