In this first pass at evaluating Final Cut Pro X (FCPX), we decided to compare three different popular Macs. We chose three initial tests. Our test project was a 32 second ProRes 422 (HQ) video, 1888×1062, 23.98 FPS, 172.22Mb/s data rate (with Surround audio 48KHz).

DIRECTIONAL BLUR EFFECT
With Background Render disabled, we applied the effect to all eight clips. Then with a stopwatch, we timed how long it took to render the effect in all eight clips. (Time is in Seconds. Shorter bar means faster.)

SHARPEN BLUR EFFECT
With Background Render disabled, we applied the effect to all eight clips. Then with a stopwatch, we timed how long it took to render the effect in all clips. (Time is in Seconds.
Shorter bar means faster.)

EXPORT ProRes 422 (HQ) to H.264
Selecting all eight clips, we exported (transcoded) to H.264 1920×1080, Millions, 23.98 FPS, 12.06 Mb/s data rate. (Time is in Seconds.
Shorter bar means faster.)
