Anyone PP on both Mac and Windows OS? Pros and Cons?
« on: October 23, 2013, 01:01:23 PM »
My apologies if this has already been discussed previously as I was unable to find anything in my cursory search.

I have been on the fence for a long time about whether to run a Mac device alongside my PC setups. Specifically, I would only be looking to do so if the gains in PP for both stills and video are as great as some claim them to be when moving to a Mac (with current equal parts in hardware of course).

I'm currently primarily processing on a 3rd gen i7, 16gb Ram, 512 plextor ssd, nvidia gt640 (I think), Windows 8.1 and am wondering what the experience would be like if I were running an equivalent setup on with the current Mac OS.

My main questions are:

1. Performance. Assuming all hardware is equal, how much if any are the differences in efficiency/processing time (LR5, CS6, Premiere, After Effects) for a Mac?

2. Are the user interfaces any different (wondering if it will take adjusting to)?

3. Any other pros or cons people experience that use both systems a lot?
