    Looking to upgrade my 2013 Macbook

    I have a 2013 Macbook Retina 2.4 ghz quadcore i7. I do some video editing, but it can't really handle hi res video. I want to upgrade to something newer (used) that can better handle video. I don't have the budget for a brand new Macbook. Would a 2019/20 i9 be a worthwhile improvement?

    Macbook Pro M1 lagging while editing movie. What are my options?

    I'm super disappointed with my M1. I purchased with 512 gb and 16gm ram. My main goal is video editing and some graphic design (nothing super demanding). Even if my videos are simple from clips, the processor lags while working in IMOVIE. And that's on a clean fresh mac with nothing installed...

    Anyone Editing R3D on M1 Max?

    I'm a video editor, and was considering the M1 Max Studio with 10C CPU, 32C GPU, 64GB RAM and 2TB. I wanted to see if anyone else on here regularly edits R3D footage (6K, 8K) and if what I'm considering is going to be smooth even with color grading and noise reduction? I just saw the M1 Ultra...

    Should we use multiple hard drives for Mac Studio Video Editing

    In years past if we had 2 or 3 hard drives for video editing it improved workflow and allowed smoother scrubbing, etc. on some systems. With the M1 Max Mac Studio, for 4K and 8K video editing, does the system perform better with a 2TB internal SSD and no externals... OR... would it benefit...

    iMovie... What am I doing wrong?

    I've been using iMovie forever... since it first came out. I still have a copy of iMovie HD I use from time to time on an old G4 tower. I have Premiere at my disposal, but I've always liked the quick-simplicity of iMovie. I am up an running on the a Mac Studio, base MAX option. I have never had...

    iPad Video editing on iPad. From Nikon Z6

    I want to do video editing and photo editing on an iPad from my Nikon Z6. I am either looking at the IPad 8th gen 128 by or an Air 4th 64 gb. I am thinking the IPad 8th gen will be enough for my uses. Or should I wait for the iPad 9th gen?

    iMovie Compatible with 10.15.4

    Hi, I want to edit a video I took, and it seems iMovie would be the way to go. I have an early 2014 MBA, running Catalina 10.15.4 with 8 GB. It's hanging in there, but I have to close a lot of things to keep it from getting too close to its 8 GB max. I found iMovie in the App Store, but it...

    2014 iMac Retina and Video Editing

    Okay, so I'm investing in a 2014 5k iMac with a Core i7-4790k, however, I'm having some issues... I'd like to edit 1080p, perhaps 1440p video with this iMac, however, I've heard that the R9 M290X with 2GB of VRAM just doesn't cut it for video editing. The M295X with 4GB of VRAM is apparently...

    Going into photo/video editing. Should I wait or should I buy?

    Hello everyone, I've been using my MacBook Air late 2010 since then, and in a few months I'll have the opportunity to start working on shooting with DLSRs and such, and then post editing full-hd (perhaps more), so I'll definitely have to get a way more powerful Mac. I'm really tempted by the 16...

    iMovie doesn't export edits—just the original video

    I'm using iMovie 10 on a Mac running macOS Catalina with the latest version of both the application and the OS. I haven't used iMovie in many years and it shows. I'm trying to use it for a very simple set of tasks: I want to trim the first and last few seconds from a long webinar recording, and...

    MP 7,1 How is it for multicam editing in Premiere?

    I'm currently using a Windows machine that I built myself last year initially as a Hackintosh, which worked fine — except that the anxiety over updates did me in. After a couple months, I gave in and installed Windows and resigned myself to just waiting for the Mac Pro to release. To date, I...

    MP 7,1 Mac Pro or iMac Pro or iMac 27"

    I went today to an official Apple retailer to order a replacement battery for my ageing 2012 15" cMBP and I asked the manager there about the new Mac Pro and what are the prices of the entry spec models. I work at a film production company and since our 2010 MacPro isn't capable anymore to edit...
