Hi everyone! I am a video editor for a live event production company. I currently work on a late 2013 Mac trash can and it's definitely showing it's age. To ease some of the stress on it, I also work off of a portable Smalltree shared storage.
I'm looking to upgrade my system and was curious on people's thoughts of possibly building a PC or maybe getting the Mac Studio. My boss isn't exactly bothered by price, but don't exactly want to break the bank on a beefy Mac Tower when you could build an insane PC for cheaper.
My best advice is to check on this forum's allied Video Hardware forum ... and check with Puget Systems both for their 'white papers' and build parts & prices. My current rig is a Puget, 24 core 3960X Ryzen, 128GB of RAM, 2080Ti, twin Nvme drives one for OS/programs, the other all cache files, and like eight other large internal SSDs, a couple large spinning discs.
It's working Pr, Ae, Audtion, and Resolve pretty nicely.
But check the Hardware forum. There's some great advice there (and on here) about Macs too.
