This was just sent in from happy new Mac Pro owner Svein Sund. I’m thinking it would make for a nice case study for Mac Pro and Final Cut on Apple’s website:
Hi, just want to tell about a crazy project I’ve recently finished. I’m the editor of the opening ceremony of the Chess Olympiad, which is currently hold in Tromsø (tromsoe), Norway at this moment.The film includes several 8×8 grid of people, all filmed in minimum of 1080p. We tried different software but nothing could compare to Final Cut Pro X combined with the new Mac Pro. And oh my god what a combination. It eats it like butter. Some have concluded with it has to be one of the biggest timelines ever. Just want to show you a short behind the scene clip of it.
