We bought a Mac Pro thinking that it would increase the speed of rendering than on an unoptimized PC. But we ran into codec issues with MPEG and WMV.
Our Tricaster PC outputs to MPEG, while it the PC reads and plays it almost natively, on the Mac it has issues such as missing sound. WMV naturally needs a codec but it crashes during rendering.
So we thought to convert everything into MOV or MP4, but that would defeat the original purpose of buying the Mac, which is speed.
Question: Is there something I could do to have Final Cut Pro or any editing software on the Mac natively read and render without conversion?
I would very much like some direction into rendering on a Mac without so much extra steps.
