        @6:22 You said you were using an i7-6950X with 10 cores. Why did you then say you were going from 18 to 32 cores ? Were you actually running a i9-9980XE ?

            Another great example of how good software can make all the diff, and why Adobe suxx. What about performance in Resolve vs. REDX? Does Resolve 16 support that type of GPU decoding too?

              I am in love with this monitor, and i would really love to buy it, but i am not sure it would work with my mid 2018 macbook pro with i9 processor and Radeon Pro 560X. Before i saw this monitor i was really interested in the LG34WK95U but even if on paper it's advertised as fully compatible with my computer after a Mac OSX update, a lot of users (and also the lg canadian Help Library) claim that the LG34WK95U is not compatible with 15'' macbook pro. Is there a chance you would make a video that shows any compatibilities between my macbook pro and an ultrawide monitor with at least 1440 pixel of vertical resolution?

                      Hey can you do an update to this video but with the Cinergy daniel Codec Plugin that uses the graphics card video encoder and decoder to render and its a game changer, I got at least 30% faster renders and I have a i7-9700k and a gtx 760

                                  Well, that's great and I don't know about Premiere performance but the Radeon VII performs just a tiny bit worse than the 2080ti in Resolve, has more VRAM
                                  and is a lot less expensive.

                                    How about Radeon SSG? That being said that these cards can play 8K raw footage from RED in realtime

                                            Spends 12k on a gpu and use a non standard driver to do this... Or just decompress and edit in prores and be done with it

                                              I don't know anything about editing video, but I am a confused as to why you would buy an expensive high end 8k camera to film and expensive high end computer parts to edit, but then limit yourself with a 1440p monitor.

                                                          I wonder if NVIDIA and RED are working on a dual Quadro set up where the entropy and wavelet decoding are handled on a separate GPU to the main rendering GPU or across multiple NVLINK Quadros. I would love to see entropy and wavelet decoding supported on a bespoke part of a GPU, like the T4 zone of the die.

Most professional digital cinema cameras, including RED and Canon, record ProRes or H.264 proxy files simultaneously to an SD card while recording 7:1 RAW/R3D files. You're watching it play back in your timeline on a preview size of about 1080p. Just edit with your proxy files when you need smooth response times, then simply connect the full size files when color grading and adding effects. You'll save thousands of dollars without sacrificing efficiency, additional rendering time, or output quality.
