Im not kidding. I am just finishing up a project, I have been working for the last two years on a low budget movie with friends. Color grading, fx's etc. Been using FCPx. We are talking about a close to 2hour long movie. I have the mac mini 2012, i7, 16gb. When I started I didn't think it would be possible, but I'm in the final stages of post production. How was it even possible? - proxy yeah, when I edited and color graded, I used the proxy setting, then when I had to export it, i went to full mode again. - cut up the movie project into 15 min short movies, then once they have been edited etc. just splice the finished movies together. easy. - i7 processor is almost a must. highly recommended. I am just amazed what you can do with the mac mini. Sure there was some patience involved, but there was never a moment of "i can't work like this". FCPx is also just super fantastic to use. Love that program. here you can read about the movie project: http://thedeserters-officialsite.blogspot.se/ anyway, for those of you who are still thinking about getting a mac to start making movies. I can tell you it is possible.
