Question for ya'll. Looking to buy new iMac to run CC...mostly Premiere, AE and such. Probably gonna max it out with RAM, graphics card upgrade and i7 chip, plus a 1TB SSD. My question is what is the best way to get a 4K PP/AE sequence to play out on a large 4K display? I obviously know about some of the hardware from BMD, Kona, AJA and the like, but everything I am seeing are usually I/O boxes. I really don't need the Input functionality as everything we edit comes from cards...just can't see any reason to capture a live feed or from a deck. Will the iMac be able to display a 4K sequence directly from a TB-HDMI adaptor, or do I need one of he above mentioned boxes?
Bonus Question: I had heard that there were some issues with CC and El Capitan...hearing some conflicting stories on whether those issues had been resolved. Anyone have any real world experience with EC and CC yet?
Thanks for the link. I had seen this, but still wasn't sure that it addressed my core concern about viewing the sequence/timeline directly on the external 4K display. I'm sure that you could drag a sequence window to the monitor, but that's kind of a pain.
Also, if this indeed works the way I hope it does, is this configuration putting too much pressure on the graphics card in the iMac?
I know that CC apps used to use the graphics cards in the MacPros for additional processing power...not sure if they are still doing that with newer, speedier CPUs.
Thanks again for your help and any further insight would be appreciated.
