I was wondering what computers the professionals of the industry usually use when getting to the part of post production, editting, rendering etc.. Do they prefer Mac or PC? What technical specifications they're looking for as for processor, Video card, Memory etc
thanks in advance!

As EVERYONE knows, PC users are manly and good looking, whereas mac users smell like cabbage and have terrible haircuts. This is FACT, not opinion. I can tell the difference. I'm smart that way.

Hope this response has been as useful and constructive an answer as your question deserves.

Best,
RuairĂ­ Robinson,

Ruairi, Rauiri. Please, you have it all wrong. It's this: "PC users are manly and have terrible haircuts, whereas Mac users smell like cabbage and are good looking."

Come on, stop posting such misguided information....

My haircut isn't that bad. . . is it?
Damn. . . it is. . . time to get a mac and be cool!

Joking aside, I've seen both, though I normally see AVID running on PCs and FCP on macs. AVID I would argue being the more "professional," of the two, though I'm not editor and I know a lot of FCP people who would (and do) argue against that.

I disagree with the cabbage comment - more like asparagus. And we tend to have lower BMI

But the best thing to get good post production is someone else's money - and lots of it. Then you can pay data gimps to spend hours in dark rooms making your footage look great.

thanks
