I am looking for help, I've searched this forum and the web but haven't found anything that can help me.
I recently got my business partner to buy a new beefed-up Mac Pro to to do some multi-cam 4K editing and be able to edit client videos in the blink of an eye.
I was using an upgraded MacBook Pro mid 2010 before that and had really laggy source and sequence playback, hence the new Mac Pro. I just installed everything today and performance isn't any better! It is not a drive problem since I'm using the Mac's internal 512Gb Flash storage to test the machine and the 4k videos play fine on other programs. I know the AMD GPU isn't supported but I know that this should mostly affect rendering and exporting, not playback.
Is there some kind of configuration that I should have? Is there some real incompatibility between Apple and Adobe? The sole purpose of this new computer was to speed up editing, but nothing has changed, I have almost the same performance as my old MacBook Pro.
Here are the configurations :
New Mac Pro :
3 GHz 8-Core Intel Xeon E5
64 GB 1866 MHz DDR3 ECC
AMD FirePro D700 6144 MB
OSX 10.10 Yosemite
