My old macpro has died. I am about to buy a six core mp with euther the 500 of the 700 cards. Adobe forum is full with people complaining with the performance. Some suggest the problem has started since 10.9.3 but it is not clear to me
Any pointers on buying a macpro? Should i consider switching to pc? Or switching the editing software? I used to work in fcp7, did not like the layout fcpx but if i have to i will learn. I just want a good operating editing machine
If you are used to FCP7 then I would suggest shifting to PremierePro - you can setup the keyboard setup to match FCP an will be home after short time. You will find that you can do a lot of basic compositing (titles, layers) directly in Premiere with no performance penalty. Premiere runs fine on any newer Mac with a decent graphics card - even an iMac will give you a good result.
