  1. Hilarious!
    This is such a fucking FLUFF and brown-noser (to the obvious SPONSORS) piece that it hurts.

    Anyone else notice how he never played back the nine stream sequence in the beginning after applying any of the effects? 😀 Of course not, since that would only play back in real-time without rendering in… you guessed it… FCP X. What a sad attempt at making Premiere look like a modern, performant NLE. Never mind the embarrassingly lame 80’s style transitions… LOL! Oh wow, and he actually plays *one whole stream* of 4K at a time… amazing. *snicker* And then he acts like THIER development makes for fast rendering times. What a disingenuous ass-hat. The dual GPU support and acceleration comes from OPEN CL and not ADOBE!

    Multicam? Really? At *⅛th* resolution? Funny how I can do full res with FCP X…. oops … what a joke.

    They should go back to trying to copy Final Cut Pro *7* (very poorly) with some FCP X features (even MORE poorly) strewn in and give it a rest…


    • How do you really feel Andy? 😉 Anyway, My point wasn’t to bash Premiere. I use it, it works just fine. The 9 stream bit didn’t really play perfectly in X or Pr on my Air after FX were applied either. Though I’m guessing it would have been just fine on a Mac Pro. Actually, I know it would, as I got a hands on Demo of X playing 16 angles of mixed 4K in real time with basic effects applied.

      On my MBA, FCP X seemed to handle things a little better but again, this was by no means a “scientific” comparison.

      I Just had too much time on my hands and 2 NLE’s to play with. 🙂

      • But that’s clearly the biggest irony by far. The fact that you used AN AIR for a comparison! At first I thought “WTF??”, but when I saw (the extremely surprising I must say) performance on essentially the *worst* possible Mac for editing (at least for FCP X, given the GPU) I thought it was hilarious since Adobe was praising “their” optimization on the *best* possible Mac. 😉

        The “unscientific” part was the best part. And yes, I just edited a TWELVE stream multicam on a nMP with FCP X on best quality setting. It kicks the pants off of Premiere in so many ways till Sunday, not just speed. 😉

Don't just sit there... say something. :-)
