Odd comparison considering he uses a Red Helium
Was thinking the same about an Epic.
Hence why my BMPCC still gets a ton of work
I edit RED 6k on a current gen MBP using FCPx with no problems. Everything you said is pretty misleading and seems to be based on opinions rather than facts.
Direct quote from REDs CEO about this:
Apple gets Raven only because of their new investment into their Mac pro hardware program. That was the deal. Sometimes you gotta take one for the team to push for a much bigger cause. I hope everyone can read between those lines and congratulate apple for putting some skin back in the game that so many assumed they just abandoned.
Look into FCPx. Apple screwed up with the 2011 launch but over the last 2-3 years its hands down become my favorite NLE especially with Red Footage
