Which MB Pro?
by Gerret Warner 8 months ago
I've been editing for years with a MB Pro mid 2012 with 1TB storage and 16GB RAM and a 30-inch Cinema Display monitor. It's all worked fine for a long time, but no longer. So I'm looking at two possib
Re: Which MB Pro?

Thanks, Oliver. Well, the 1TB refurbished is already gone. And it looks as if all new MB Pros don't allow RAM upgrades. Only the i9 chip allows 32GB RAM and would need to be purchased that way, since

Does anyone know where I can find a longer HDMI cable for our HVX200? The clamp that holds the cable to the camera is necessary, but I don't think it's standard issue with other HDMI cables.

DVCPRO HD is 8-bit, and anamorphic. ProRes is 10 bit and full raster. Both are 422. ProRes is the better option, but it all depends on what you will be delivering, and how much rendering ou want to do
