Oh and I can play back 6K Dragon footage with no lag.
Though I'd mention that before you buy a PC and become morally obliged to shave off your hipster beard.
I worried as well, and couldn't find anyone, even Adobe to check if the playback acceleration worked with the AMD card.
So I bought it. And it does. Relief.
No question, the fully specked 5K iMac runs Adobe very well... I can't deny Final Cut would probably run faster but there's no surprise there.
It's the real estate that makes having the 5K that much better. I can't say I'm not biased having just acquired a fully specked one... But being able to view your rushes in HD without resizing your workspace is so useful, not to mention for multicam editing.
I can pretty much make the edit in that tiny viewer window on PP it's so sharp.
And just as we all fancy playing with the new Red, I must admit that watching it's images back in full resolution is a real pleasure and just as new toys give you the desire to play with them, watching those images gives makes you want to shoot.
I think that sounds good! I'm slightly worries as I've never added blur in AE, let alone shoot a doc at 100fps!
I'm starting to worry about media! 100fps in 4k ProRes 4444 is 22gb/min.
I've never slowed video with interpolation... What rate would you feel ok to push 48fps footage to? 50% at 96fps or is that already too far?
Sigma 18-35 1.8... An invaluable addition.
Thanks Jamie, that is extremely helpful... I was wondering if there was something more efficient then pixel blur for AE!
I've read and seen that 48fps with a shutter angle of 140degrees is used a lot, do you have any idea what there is to gain in adding that extra blur? As I agree with you, rather have too sharp then too blurry any day!
Would also love a few 2/4k 200fps Amira files to play with if anyone has one!
