None of of the bench scores I have seen show the old MacBook Pro 2013 beating the new MacBook Pros so I'm not sure where you are getting this information. Also, for the last time, CUDA is not better than Open CL can we move on from this nonsense.
Adobe utilizes open CL as well as it does Cuda. This use to not be the case many years ago but Adobe has since updated their code and tests have shown almost no difference in in terms of GPU performance. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g7cQK8jFPzo
So by this rationale, no Red camera shoots true "raw" as every flavor of r3d files is compressed. Compression is not a bad thing, it creates manageable file sizes that otherwise would send storage costs through the roof. I would always shoot 4:1 compression on an Ursa Mini as you cannot tell the difference between the compressed and the uncompressed that comes out of the camera. Raw truly means nothing is baked in. It is not in an RGB color space so things like white balance can be changed after the fact.
I feel that Canon did miss the mark by not putting more compressed versions of the raw on this camera. 1 GBPS is going to create really large files that are simply not necessary for extensive color grading. I also feel they missed the mark by eventually putting xf-avc at only 8 bit on this camera. For the price of this camera, the XF-AVC should be 10 bit.
Previous versions have worked well for me, you need a beefy computer to run it though. This new update is supposedly better optimized for lower end hardware.
Are these cards still catching on fire or did they fix that?
I'm confused, 1:66:1 is a common European aspect ratio used on films such as Rosemary's Baby and The Witch most recently. That aspect ratio is the native aspect ratio of super 16 mm film as well I believe.
