M1 Mini video editing - mad laughter!
Posted by: mrbigstuff
Date: June 10, 2021 07:42PM
I've got a camera that shoots AVCHD and it has always ground my computers (admittedly, only an i3 and i5) to a halt. Like, nothing going except a few seconds at a time. And DaVinci Resolve would not open at all. I'm not a video editor by any stretch, but I have been shooting video with this camera for about 10 years now, just keeping all of the raw footage so that one day I could find a machine to edit it without spending thousands. Haha!!! my cheapest machine ever rolls right through it!

That was my experience, too. I put together training videos via Screenflow, far from an expert, and the first laugh I got with my M1 Mini was watching it work with (still Rosetta!) Screenflow videos. It had that same feeling as the first time I operated my mac from an SSD instead of spinning disks.

I'm still amazed that the top chip makers of the world hadn't come up with this solution on their own. It took a non-chip maker Apple to show how to build something that didn't put out heat and was this fast. Was it laziness on Intel, etc,'s part?

Yet they must've known they were in a world where faster, cooler, more efficient was an ever-present need, and not constantly innovating towards that would cost them dearly. Granted, I'm arm-chairing and have no idea what kind of struggles and tech is required to come up with breakthrough tech like the M1.

Probably. But with no one to move the goal post or innovate in any way, why bother. The status quo was/is working so don't rock the boat.

I think I remember QuarkXPress conveying a message similar to this smiling smiley

They were such a classic casebook study of how to go from the top to the bottom in 2 short years by blatantly ignoring (pissing off) their customers. When a competitor finally came along to challenge them (InDesign), the retribution was brutal to watch. Fun in a schadenfreude way, though.

I’m recalling the early iPhone hardware team that brought the idea of an Arm processor. When Jobs pushed back, the story is they said they would quit if Apple went with Intel. What a prescient view.

Well, they must have known that to get the battery life in a reasonable size phone that the CPU would need to be very low power, and that nothing from Intel would do the job they wanted.

Nice history article. QuarkXPress 3/4 in 1999 is the late Middle Ages of DTP after PageMaker had been abandoned. In 1990 I briefly considered FrameMaker (4 years before Adobe bought and killed it) on a Sun workstation for 5,000 page manuals. At the time it was something like 3x a Mac SE/30, so the computer services dept. knifed that baby pretty quick. Word was struggling, but it was a huge upgrade from the corporate publishing service that would take six months to ship a new set of manuals.

I took it that they saw Intel - back then - as moving the same way IBM did for the 'mobile G5' chip.
