Hey, just out of curiosity, is anyone usng a newer Mac for VFX work? Something Post-Cheesegrater, I have one of those I’m not looking for a bash on Mac thread (or a BASH on Mac thread), but a more constructive discussion.
I really like Mac OS, but it took so long for them to come out with a new Pro level system, it feels like they were left behind by the industry they helped create. It was completely self-inflicted, I have no delusions about that. But my Macs are all at least 10yo and are really only used for surfing and iCritter support these days.
Does anyone have a new one, like the New Improved Cheesegrater or maybe a MBP 16 or something with a serious ext GPU? I’m just wondering if there’s a viable path forward on the platform? The AMD cards even the new ones have are fairly behind the RTX offerings.
I see Nuke and Resolve seem pretty involved in supporting them. The holy trinity on Mac these days seems to be Premeire, AF, and C4D for Mograph work; based on what I see anyway.
Just looking for other perspectives?
