So, I've been a Mac user for a long time. I mean, I use PC as well, but for video editing, Mac is my home-boi. Recently, I've wanted to upgrade my kit. Problem is, there's a really, REALLY big gap between my hardware/software, and what Apple offers modern day. So, I suppose this is a question as well as a request for advice, but yeah... So first the question: In FinalCut Pro X, it looks like when you delete a section in the middle of a clip, it automatically snaps the second half of the clip to align with the first, closing the gap. This is nothing new in FCP, but my question is, can you have gaps in between clips, without filling the gap with a blank slug? This would destroy the workflow I learned in the older versions of FinalCut Pro. Now for the advice: I want to upgrade my kit, and Am looking for a portable way to edit my footage. I'm looking to primarily be editing 1080p60, or varying bitrate levels, some low and some high. I do a lot of green screening, and special effect type work. Portable battery life is not a concern. I grew up on 14-16 inch screens. Screen size isn't really a massive concern. I'm willing to save up some cash to get something good, but I'm also not looking for a 4K computer. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Someone said I should get an MSI laptop, and install Mac's OS on it... Thoughts? Or should I just get the real deal, and go Apple? Thanks to anyone interested.
