Because I want my intermediate and delivery formats to be the same, that's why.
The best deals I've found for dual hex-core computers seems to be from Titanus. Those are PC's of course.
I've actually gotten a request for delivery of ProRes versions (in PAL) for a couple pictures. We can deliver that, of course, but I'm wondering how long ProRes will remain as the standard file-delivery format. Maybe Apple will turn around and continue to support FCP, like a version 8 which would be split off from their dumbed-down "X" version? Who knows?
I only need three things for a blog post, right? Exactly.
