I know FCPX is great. I wouldn't take anything else nowadays.. Premiere is good but lacks optimization for Metal.PIERRE WOODMAN wrote:FCP X is great and I love it. The bug of the 10.4.1 has been corrected and 4.2 is perfect now. Export are real time even less if I let the renders been done, so I think it's very powerfull. My friend using premiere on PC don't export a 2 hours 4K video in less that 2 hours with their laptop ( and I have a lot of effect inside, color, logos etc ... )
But your laptop will always throttle down in CPU and GPU speed after lets say 30 minutes of exporting because of the heat. Laptops arent made for really long renders n stuff.
It will start off using 3.5 Ghz but after that 3/4 of time maybe use 2Ghz @ 65C instead of 3.5Ghz @ 88-90C
Apple unfortunately still cant get their act together when it comes to throttling. They choose silence over power.
I use a 2013 12-core Mac Pro with 2xD700 and 64GB. Long projects with a lot of LUTs and filters should be done on a desktop IMO
