Completing a Music Video in Under 10 Days

"At McFarland and Pecci, we currently edit our projects in Adobe Premiere Pro. With it's ability to edit any codec on the market, it's powerful integration with other Adobe programs (After Effects and Photoshop), and its lightning fast workflow, why would we use anything else? Here is something else that might surprise you. We edit on PCs!

Yes, we decided against upgrading to the shiny, expensive black "trashcan" that Apple is selling and went with a custom-built Genesis II 4K edit suite from Puget Systems. This affordable, upgradeable, high-speed machine allows me to edit 4K raw footage in real time and apply effects and grades right in my timeline -- no playback rendering, no waiting. I hate waiting."

McFarland & Pecci: 4K Editing On A PC

"I'd like to tell you about a recent choice I made that would effect how I do my projects as an artist and as a filmmaker. I have been long frustrated by constant upgrades slowing down my edit suites and dealing with Apple's constant push for creative professionals to buy over-priced Mac Pro systems. I was on a mission to find something new, faster and less expensive.

Join me as I tell the story of how I broke away from Apple's marketing and built our new PC based 4K video editing system. So I began my relationship with the amazing guys at Puget Systems..."
