    Do I need an eGPU for my tasks?

    So everyone knows that the i5 in the Mac mini is strong enough for almost everything. We can put that behind us. Except for 3D rendering related tasks, one will need an eGPU. I'd say that now but I'm not sure. [1] Sooo......What do you call as 3D rendering? My workflow includes Photoshop...

    I currently own a 13 inch Macbook Air. Its not the lastest one, but I bought about 4 years ago. I want to upgrade to a Pro because I am a video editor, and also I might be shooting 4k. After effects can get really slow on my laptop because I do more intensive editing so I’m hoping to get a...

    AE blurry image

    Ok, so I'm a newbie and need help with settings when making an animation. I've imported my .ai files into AE and animated but when I export these if I view fullscreen in QT the animation looks blurry and not sharp. On the AE composition viewer screen at 100% it looks fine, 200% is pixelated...

    Is the New MB Pro 2016 15" Strong Enough for 4K?

    Hey there! I am looking to replace my very old Macbook Pro (late 2011, 13 inch) with a 2016 Macbook pro 15 inch. Now, since my budget is limited I was wondering whether the default configuration is enough in order to have a decent workflow editing 4K footage. Obviously, not a 4K feature, but...

    The automatic "Store in Cloud" in OSX Sierra is a great feature, and I'd like to keep it, but I'm running into a problem: I work as a video editor and sometimes folders that I need locally get uploaded to the cloud. They're things like textures that the software accesses infrequently, but which...
