Final Cut Pro X Performance Test
In a departure from our usual tutorials, today we’ll be taking a look at how fast FCP X can get on the latest equipment. We’ve got a new iMac, a new Mac Pro, and some older Macs too, and we’ll be putting them through their paces on real-world-ish 1080p and 4K workflows, all with 2 minutes of ProRes HQ source material sourced from the Blackmagic Production Camera 4K, used at original size (strictly speaking, 3840x2160) and also downscaled to 1080p. Lots of tables, a little discussion—and many thanks to Ben Balser for providing test results for three of his Macs. Let’s go!
