Hi! I haven't posted here in a long time but always keep an eye out for rumours, tips and advice. I'm a film director with a serious lack of knowledge in terms of hardware. Up to now the majority of my productions have been edited / graded etc in various post houses where the hassle of handling and delivering the content is not mine. I'm setting up a new office at the moment and I want to put in an editing system which will give me both offline and online capability as I venture into a new feature film project. The majority of the footage I handle is tapeless - 90% of the time coming from the RED ONE camera. I had been hanging on for updates to the MacPro series before I made a purchase but it has occurred to me that maybe the top end iMac may be the way forwards. My main concern would relate to what ways I may be limited by this purchase as opposed to buying a MacPro. I do however need to strike a balance between price and my needs. My main requirements would be for offline editing on Final Cut, having the capability for compression and handling of large amounts of data and also using color for finishing etc. Does the new 27inch i7 have what it takes for this? I would not envisage having to handle massive amounts of graphics etc. If I go the IMac route am I tying myself to limitations in terms of what I can do or is this the correct route for a professional who does not necessarily need to use lots and lots of power hungry software? Is the machine fast enough, is the graphics card good enough? I'm a professional in terms of the content I deliver but a complete amateur in terms of knowing what I need to buy! All advice and comment appreciated! Thanks.
