Hello VFX talk!
Ive had a quick look through the forums and seen many similar topics but nothing that fully answered my question.
Heres my situation:
I’m somewhat new to VFX but pretty decent, and insanely addicted and interested, about to head off to a post graduate degree program in VFX, and trying to get into the industry. My computer however… lets just say doesnt wanna join me on the journey.
Im looking for a computer to use (almost exclusively for vfx, if not actually exclusivley) with great render time, graphics, RAM, etc.
I need something that performs VERY well, but also isn’t a full on professional setup that will cost thousands because quite honestly I dont have tons of money.
I was hoping some people here could give me a few suggestions for each different price range, basically starting from the cheapest possible setup that will run ***AFTER EFFECTS*** and all other adobe programs, possibly maya, and 3ds max. So again, start as low in price as you can while still running it smoothly, and move up to some decent priced setups.
I also know there are opinions and sitautions on all these questions but give me an "in general" option.
Mac VS PC?
RAM? (Motherboard allows alot i hope)
And all other specs you can think of.
