Well, without any excess drama or fuzz, how did it go? Looking for experiences from different pros, be it moving images, 3D or photography. Shout it out! In short. My old pimped 1.1 rig is on its way out. It has served as a photo workhorse now for over 8 years, 24/7, but miles are showing. It still does the normal compositing/retouching & normal 1080p editing (barely) but as I am doing more and more 3D (mudbox, maya etc) it really starts to show its age. Especially when in the recent months the need for some novel/experimental 3D programs has grown along with the need for support for OR and the like. I have decided to skip the OS X as I have the adobe cloud and licenses and rights for almost all my other software. So instead of considering the nMP I am jumping the boat. Tear or two will be shed as I have using mac boxes since 1992 but.. Times change I guess. Have used different PC boxes on the side for the whole time but they have been that kind of...flings..you know. Now I am basically looking for decent box (5930k+gtx 980) for a year or two for work use. Both psCC, lr5, premier/afefx/3D,win 8.1 pro, VR support. I have the setup pretty much dialed, about 2.5k euros with 3 year warranty. Why am I not going for some 8-10k xeon box? Well, I have different work stations at my use at university/work and this would be a home setup. And as I will prolly move withing a year, no idea buying something massive to ferry across the globe. I am interested in what kind of specs people ended with (and why) and especially what kind of experiences you have gotten after switching. Have heard mostly positive about the adobe CC and how little it have affected people working in the photography, basically everything is the same. In the video people have had some stuff to get accustomed to but the transition to 3D programs seems to be smoother and easier? So, whassup? I know it is kind of blasphemy to bring out a topic like this to the MP forum, but hell, the years have shown that this is the place for some (hot) discussions! Thx in advance!
