    Greetings,
    I am a cinematographer and own a Red Epic 5k (soon to be 6k) camera. I want to be able to work using Red's Red Cine software to do color correction on my footage, but also do some editing in Final Cut Pro. I need help in determining what options on the new Mac Pro will truly benefit me in that workflow and which will be overkill. Will the new graphics and video cards on the Mac Pro compare at all to the Red Rocket Card in terms of rendering files?
    Thanks in advance,
    Robb

    I don't how optimized Red Cine is for the newest Mac Pro, but it _is_ OpenCL accelerated, which is key - the Mac Pro is a parallel processing monster. Assuming it's well optimized, the more cores and the beefier the GPU you add, the faster it should run. That's in a perfect world. In reality, "get what you can afford" is my mantra.

    I haven't tried Red Cine but have done testing using DaVinci Resolve. Red footage is not accelerated via Resolve. Read my review here:
