Sometimes you just need a little extra power to spice things up in the office. Here at FiveSix Productions, we’ve been running a few different workstations for some time now, a couple mac trashcans from awhile back and a couple newer imac pro machines. But with the new Mac Pro out, we decided our Edit 1 Bay could use an extra boost. So far so good. We run the Adobe Creative Cloud suite working primarily with Premiere Pro and After Effects but also DaVinci Resolve for some color correction. This machine takes on video editing, real time 2D and 3D graphics creation and powers through the renders at a much better click than its predecessor, but I should hope so for the price tag. We didn’t load it up with all the extras and purchased most of the additions from outside of Apple, though we did opt for the afterburner card to help with quick encoding. We’re only a few weeks in but our editors can surely tell the difference.
There isn’t much else to say. We’ve cut a commercial, half a dozen corporate videos and a short film so far and haven’t had any issues. We’ll update soon once we’ve really put it to the test and have some hard data of our own to report. Until then, happy cutting!
