Iain Anderson performs some very useful Final Cut Pro and Motion benchmarks on the new Apple laptops.
I think we can say now that Apple's new 14 and 16 inch MacBook Pro models have been received well. We knew that the 16" was a great machine within a few minutes of firing it up from unboxing.
But what about export benchmarks if you are undecided between the 14 and 16 inch models? This is where the new video from Iain Anderson may be able to help.
'In this video, I'll show you how the new M1 Pro and M1 Max chips in the new MacBook Pro perform in Final Cut Pro, with plenty of results from real-world tests. Spoiler: if you edit video, you should go for the M1 Max if you can — it's almost always faster than the M1 Pro and most other Macs.'
Also we can't end the article without mention Iain's excellent FCP book: Final Cut Pro X: Efficient Editing. It's packed full of info and there will be an update for 10.6 available soon.
