So I think I am regretting not getting the i7 iMac because my 1080p HEVC encodes take the timeline length or doubled. Meaning if I have a 1 hour video, it will take 1-2 hours to encode. These are just screen recordings mostly with very light edits and audio adjustments I’m not sure how much the GPU is used with basic edits, titles and transitions. I was thinking about the 6 core mini. However, if it will not help at all there is no point. I have a custom built PC with two 2560x1440 displays so that’s not an issue using those.
