Very specific issue regarding Premiere, Red Raw and the iMac Pro
I purchased an iMac Pro after the early reviews mentioned how well it performs with red footage and premiere on timeline playback.
Max Yuryev mentioned how he could playback 8k RAW footage at 1/2 resolution in real-time without any dropped frames. Here: -
Got to approx 4’57s
Unfortunately my iMac 10 core Vega64 with 64GB RAM doesn’t. I’ve used the same footage as him from Red samples files and I always get dropped frames and my iMac Pro is actually better than his 8 core Vega56.
Does anyone have Premiere CC and and iMac Pro to test the results for me? I’m thinking my machine is having issues even though my synthetic benchmarks are better than his. I’m more worried about everyday premiere Pro and editing use, which is the reason for the purchase.
