iMac for video editing
I'm looking to buy a used iMac 2012 or later & was wondering what some of your experiences have been. Am I better off getting a slightly older i7 processor i.e 2012 versus 2013 i5? How much memory should the GPU have versus the CPU?
I mainly work in 1080P ProRes on projects 10 mins in length or less, though I might work with some 4K downscaled to 1080p in the near future. Right now I'm using FCPX & Motion 5, but I might move back to Adobe CC for Premiere & light After FX work.
Thanks for any insight you all have. I'm still learning about computer specs & where my money should go when it comes to working with video.
