Premiere Pro CC on the new Mac Pro

There has been a lot of confusion and misinformation recently about how well Premiere Pro CC runs on Apple’s latest professional desktop machine, the new Mac Pro. I’m happy to say that, due to the meant-to-be combination of the Mercury Playback Engine and the immense power of the hardware, you can expect absolutely phenomenal performance. In this video, our man Dave Helmly takes you through just what it can do (and there’s even a surprise at the end, so if you ever work with RED media, I suggest you watch the whole thing).


This is fantastic. Thank you. I have a similar configuration (8 core, d700, 64gb ram) and I noticed that Premiere is not nearly as fast as shown in video, when debayerimg 4k (or stacking effects on HD for that matter). Clearly, this is a different version of cc. When will it be released?

Cool, although please reinstate OpenCL on the AMD Radeon 6970M cards and similar – there are lots of us on iMacs with those cards that were using OpenCL great with 7.1 but 7.2 and 7.2.1 introduced lots of bugs
