/ Final Cut Pro X and Macs
What are you using it on and will the following be powerful enough for it?
Apple 27-inch iMac (which I already have). With....
Intel Core i5 Quad-core 3.2GHz Processor, 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD, NVIDIA GeForce GT 675M, OS X Mountain Lion.
Other option is to go for a Mac Pro with all the bells and whistles but they are a bit pricey.
I know FCP will run on the iMac but interested to hear what others think.
Should be fine.
I am on a MacPro but older with dual 2.8GHz Quad-cores, and 12 Gig of RAM. Not sure about the video card but I doubt that will be the problem.
I would upgrade to OSX Mavericks since it seems no slower, and is a better system. By far the most painless new Apple OS upgrade in recent years.
Live rendering can be slow but it is much better than the old FCP 7 or 8 or whatever it was.
Thanks for that.
How slow is the live rendering? That will be a important factor for me.
Doubt it. You can continue editing and it just doesn't render, then when you pause it starts.
I haven't had any problems with it since the pauses are usually welcome, but I haven't been doing any very complex edits.
