COURSE DESCRIPTION

As Larry Jordan, the host of this webinar, was testing and writing about a 2016 MacBook Pro laptop, he realized that many of the assumptions he had regarding hardware configuration for video editing were out of date.

In this session, he covers much of what he learned so that as you look at your next computer purchase you can make more informed decisions when configuring your system. This specifically focuses on the hardware needs of Apple Final Cut Pro X and Adobe Premiere Pro CC.

This half-hour webinar looks at:

  • How to define performance
  • Which components should we pay the most attention to
  • Measuring how Final Cut and Premiere use storage
  • Measuring how Final Cut and Premiere use RAM
  • Measuring how Final Cut and Premiere use the CPU and GPU

Larry discovered many surprises during testing over the last month. He thinks you’ll learn a lot as well.
