Summary: Which editor should you choose to edit video? Mac or Windows computer can do the work better? May be you puzzled by the problem for a long time. From now on, depend on this article, you have no confuses on editing video any more.
Generally speaking, video editing work can be done on either Mac or Windows computer in any portable editor, however, people always hope can got one of the best methods to handle the issues. Almost people think that Mac and FCP would be the best for video editing. Indeed, in some aspect it should be absolutely right.
What I mean is, an average Windows computer cost around $500. It has basic configuration to do basic stuff. But Macbook usually starts with $1000. Now if you charging double, then people will defiantly expect a powerful system. Right ? This is why MACs are better in video editing and overall more stable then Windows. Thought it lack the gaming part.
Well, for Windows users, FCP ain’t their cup of tea. But, AVID has always been industry standard and now Premiere is catching up too.
FCP 7 was the best in the Final Cut Pro era, but unfortunately with FCP X and it’s very close relation to iMovie made it an amateurish software. And, FCP’s userbase is steadily declining when Adobe is making their software cheaper and better while Apple is still building on the failed idea.
Then again, AVID and Premiere works on both Windows and Mac. FCP is like the “Do what I say” kind, while as Avid and Premiere is “I am yours master”. That said, you can do the same thing on any Windows computer. Simply make a custom $1000 PC with powerful CPU and install Adobe premier pro. It will do the same job as FCP running on Mac.
You cannot just say FCP and Mac are the best combo, if you importing all the best supported format for each editor, such as the Apple ProRes for FCP, MPEG-2 for the Premiere, or the DNxHD for Avid, Windows or Mac with the editor running smoothly would be able to do editing work smoothly.
