I know this has probably been covered 1000x times by now. However i came up with no real conclusion searching around the past few days. Im a Video editor and own a small time production company. Everything we push out is 1080pHD. I previously owned an 8 Core Mac pro, then the 12 Core. Then a year ago swapped to PC as the Mac Pro looked to be Dropped permanently and id out grown the machine i was using. Now im wanting to get back into working on a Mac, however for what im doing im unsure if i could just go with a loaded out 27inch IMac or should i wait for the new Mac Pro. Do i really need the Mac Pro? My Work Flow Break Down would be 30% Adobe CS6 Premier (1080p Edits working with DSLR and RED Files, Also Multicam At Times) 30% Adobe CS6 After Effects (1080p Composites / Graphic/Animation Design) 20% Cinema 4D / Mudbox (Animation,3D Modeling,Texturing,Realistic Renders) 15% Photoshop (Touch up Raw DSLR Files and AE Files) 5% BluRay/DVD Authoring I Know the 27" IMac Could handle the Blu Ray Authoring / Photoshop with ease. However im scared the Multicam 1080 Edits and 3D Rendering would be bottle necking with the IMac. At the same time with as far as technology has come an IMac may be able to handle all this. The IMac is also financially looking pretty to me. Around $3200 Loaded out and Screen is included. The Mac Pro im at 3-4k For Base Line and thats with no Monitor Guess my question is could the new IMac handle my daily tasks with ease. Or do i really need the "Mac Pro" power ? Also i dont plan on editing 4K anytime soon. We have a camera Capable, however due to the lack of clients owning or even knowing what a 4K TV is there's not any reason to edit in it. It would be nice to know i could edit 4k in the future tho as the technology makes it more accessible.
