I´m just trying to figure out what kind of Mac editing system do we need in order to work with Redcine@4K and FCP2. Everybody keeps saying 3Ghz quad or eight core but...(Rob ?)
- Is really that necessary to have the fastest MacPro or say a dual 2.6 will do the work fine ?. (I used to work with DVCPROHD and HDCAM, both higher data rate than Redcode I believe, in an old G4...
- Would the "on board" raid system (w/ raid card) Apple offers will be good enought for 4K ?.
- Memory ?
- Just to get an idea, how much would it take to downconvert 1 hour of 4K@24fps Redcode to DVCPRO HD or Digibeta ?.
It would be good to have an official word about this, (hopefully in a sticky)or some certification...Don´t want to set up an expensive system and find out later that it was too much for the job or worst, not good enough for it.
