I've searched and searched and haven't been able to find an answer to this specific question. I need to know if editing 5D footage in FCP on the 11 inch MBA is possible, or is the entire experienced hampered by ridiculously long rendering and converting to pro res? I know the Air is capable of running FCP, but 5D files can be rather large and hard for computers to deal with. My 2007 MBP (R.I.P.) couldn't smoothly play 5D footage in quick look even. Am I going to have the same problem with the air or is it doable? Also, I'm worried about the long term effects of taxing the CPU. I could just be theorizing but my 07 MBP was on its last legs, taking 5 minutes to open word, heating up like nobody's business, burning my legs, crashing, etc... and the only reason I can think this would happen is because of how hard I taxed the CPU with flash video, netflix, editing, etc. Could my MBA be destined to the same fate if I push it too hard? Thank you all.
