by Jim Elliott 3 years ago
Well, this is depressing. I don't know if something is wrong with my MacBook 2016, but I've noticed that footage in the Premiere program monitor looks VERY different to the exported video in various p

Glad you found a solution. I still use Premiere with the layer of contrast saturation on top. But might eventually switch over fully to fcpx
Sony A7s Ii 4K footage - unusably choppy playback - codec or bitrate issue? (Is all 4K footage the same?
by Jim Elliott 3 years ago
So trying to edit 4K footage from my A7s II on my late 2016 MacBook is basically impossible - playback is so poor in Premiere. It s teally not practical and time-efficient to have to make proxies all

My buddy who does all my sound engineering swears by Logic Pro. He's worried that Apple has abandoned the product, as updates don't appear to be forthcoming. But EQ alone could be done on any of a lot
