Ok - So I do a bunch of video editing for the company I work for. I do a bunch of work in Motion and FCP 7 (not X). I have a MacBook Pro 2.2 Ghz i7 with 8GB of memory. It takes a considerable time to render/use compressor. Just curious as to thoughts regarding a next step to have a better experience with both. Is a 6 or 12 core Mac Pro with at least 8 gigs of ram going to speed things up for me - or do I get a top of the line MacBook Pro and trick it out with a lot of memory. Thanks for the heads up.
