Hi all...a similar question has most likely been asked elsewhere, but after spending some time looking I thought I'd start a new thread. Sorry if this has been asked a ton already. So, I'm working for an organization that wants a documentary made (about 30 minutes in length) about what they do, etc. I am the filmmaker spearheading the projectówent to film school, have made short films, music videos, etc. The main area in which I lack expertise is editing and I'm now working on learning more. I am going to buy a new editing computer and, as I am used to Macs and Final Cut, would like to stay in Mac territory. I've gotten some advice and I've been told two things. One is I should go with an 8-Core Mac Pro with 6GB memory, and ATI Radeon Graphics card, and two 2.4ghz quad-core processors. The other recommendation was that I go with an iMac with a 3.4ghz quad-core processor, 16gb memory, and a 2tb solid state drive. This second suggestion was based on the quoted price of the first (both will run about $3600). My question is: is there an option that is cheaper than this, but still effective and good? I will be using this computer for quite a while I assume so it should be durable. If one of these two options is the best bang-for-my-buck, I'll cough up the money, but if not I'd like to save a little bit. Sorry for the long-winded question. Thank you, in advance, for your answers.
