Your time is worth something? Make sure you Mac Pro runs at top speed.
A recent MPG Pro Workstation customer writes:
The Mac Photo Workstation you configured for our company is doing great. Aptly, we named her "Godzilla." Our clients are very impressed and pleased with this mega computer for photo shoots. Everything is running smoothly and lighting fast. The speed shows especially in Capture One Pro 5 for rendering incoming capture files, from the Canon 1ds Mark III to the Phase P45+ digital back. There are no lags in processing out files either. Even within CS5, batch processing of files is remarkably fast along with any rendering of high-rez PSD files (i.e. 100-200MB).
Godzilla has already caught the eye of some image retouchers we work with. It's a great system and I'm looking forward to building up a few more of these as we expand into more video, and maybe even tinkering with our Macbook Pros (MPG Pro Laptop) for raid stripe inside to enhance performance for our location photographers
