I'll have the opportunity to shoot with a RED ONE MX this summer and from the looks of it may be doing all the editing on my 2011 Mini Server, if we use Final Cut Pro and Compressor I may be able to put together a weak distributed cluster for rendering using my laptop and my friends laptop - sadly we both have MacBooks (not MBP's). But that's another issue, since we haven't quite thought about post production yet as we still need to shoot the film. Has anyone here edited RED RAW (R3D) on recent a Mac (2010, 2011)? We'll likely be shooting at 4.5k so the file sizes will be huge. I upgraded the RAM to 8GB's upon delivery of the Mini and have dual 750GB HDD's. What are we looking at in terms of rendering time for a 30 minute 4k output video? If we use my Mini we'll likely perform an offline edit then link to the high-res for final rendering. We'll also render it in lower resolutions, but 4k is the largest we'll output. Just to get the two extremes, if we render it in 1080p, what would our estimated render time be?
