Anyone taking the risk and using macOS High Serria on a Mac Pro 2013 doing video production with the new supposably better overall production functionality (SSD, video coding, updated file system, dual graphic card hopefully processing improvements)?

Where did you see that? I would think it unusual to optimize for a product that is still Beta. There was talk of a FCPX update "later this year."

Haven't seen that anywhere, but it will eventually need to be since introducing new video coding.

It's just the early beta, far too early to look for optimisation, improvement, etc.

The small update beta (e.g. 10.12.6 beta) may bring you some improvement. But this kind of pre OS release beta (10.x.0 beta) rarely work better than the current official OS release.

And I don't think Apple will release the FCPX that optimised for HS until HS officially released. From memory, the update always come after the OS release, but not before.

I am a little weary about the switch to the new file system and how long it will take until a reasonable working version of High Sierra is presented that does not interrupt workflow (or at least often).

Anytime anything "New" that changes the way something else "just worked" etc., it seems to take a few OS versions to get it stable. I know that it is the right direction to optimize for the newer technology (and welcome it..), but the way apple has been going lately...I am a little weary..

I am definitely looking forward to an optimize file system for SSD's as well as better video compression and possible graphics "Metal" enhancements...but have a gut feeling that it might take until High Sierra official version .4 to smooth out the kinks or a few years, like from Snow Leopard to Lion...to Mountain Lion to finally Mavericks. Took three attempts to finally land...

Hope I am wrong..
