I resent comments like this. I'm a pro user who uses their iMac Pro for a number of things 8k editing, motion graphics, minimal 3d work, color grading in Resolve, and have no issues. I'm not a casual user and have no desire to have a mac that I need to replace parts myself in. Some people may want that and that's fine. But calling the rest of us casual for not wanting those same things is getting old from this community.
On blackmagics website, No Film School just seemed to miss it in this article. It happens.
Such an underrated piece of software. Kind of odd the vitriol that still comes from editing professionals who haven't really used FCPx.
None of this is the case in their new machines. Especially the new imac pro. PC Gamer tried to build a similar maching spec for spec and the iMac was equal in price and with some upgrades cheaper. Not to mention the new GPU's are brand new from AMD
It won't let me reply to you but your parts are likley dated compared to whats in the new iMac Pro. Your cores aren't the only spec to be compared. I'm also guessing you don't have a 5k screen or a support staff available to you.
A few have tried to build the equivalent in a PC and the iMac Pro is actually cheaper for what you get.
