Hello there everyone. I am starting to get pretty big into movie editing lately. I have a 2nd Tier (bigger HD and slightly better cpu) 13 inch MBP Early 2011. I was wondering, when I try to use any decent video editing software such as Final Cut Pro, my computer gets ready to kill itself and the software is barely useable. When I am using final cut, my cpu usage is about 20-30% and my free ram gets to about 15-30mb of ram free. I tend to have a lot of pageins. If I try to play games or edit video, my page-ins will easily reach 15GB. So I was wondering. Is ram the limiting factor here or would it be something else. I am not very bright with computers and dont know how things work with them. I would also like to point out that the closest thing to a graphics card that I have is Intel 3000 HD, which I admit, isnt as bad as I expected. Anyway, do you guys think that it is at all possible to run something like Final Cut on my Mac? What should my next step be in terms of upgrading be to make it run better? Is my 4gb of ram the limiting factor, or is it something more like the gpu? I have heard of the hier tier macs running Final Cut fine with only 4GB ram so I am worried that I may have wasted a ton of money if I am wanting to get into video editing some more. Thanks!
