    • Not sure on the best settings, but one way to get some insight is to run the activity monitor to show you the CPU/GPU load during rendering so you can see what's going on.   I think Resolve puts more emphasis on the GPU than CPU compared to other NLEs, and I'm pretty sure that I read somewhere that DR16 moves a lot of processing to the GPU to make this even moreso.  In which case what you're after is a maxed out GPU.   You may also consider some third party monitoring applications that will show you CPU and GPU temperatures as well, as that will tell you if there is throttling going on, which obviously can impact things considerably. Good luck - I'll be joining you when I get my RX 5700 card..  just waiting on Apple to release drivers, which history suggests will be a few months unfortunately.
    • I used to be a champion for AF and was looking at buying an A7III because of its AF until I discovered that I actually like the aesthetic of MF.  This lead me down the path of GH5 with manual lenses and I've never looked back. I particularly like the very human and analog feel of MF, and its imperfections (which are especially prevalent when I do it!).  I am completely in love with the aesthetic I get from the GH5 and I think the imperfect MF is a real contributor to that, as I think it suits the emotional/nostalgic feeling I want for the home videos that I make.   The fact that I stopped being frustrated by poor AF is also a bonus, the number of times I was just standing there holding the camera watching the moment go by while silently screaming "focus you @#[email protected]#$" probably had a measurable impact on my average blood pressure...
    • I started using Lightroom to catalog and manage my footage but (IIRC) as soon as I moved from the 700D to the XC10 that stuffed it up because Lightroom wouldn't even recognise the files existed, so I think it depends on what file formats you're using. I can try it for you if you tell me what file format you're interested in using.
    • Dude of course you have to be a better photographer. That's a given. It's a bad argument though. The A7RIV has better AF, Better Dynamic Range (advertised, still needs tested), Dual Card Slots, Better EVF, higher FPS burst, much higher resolution, along with more native lenses. Those are quite a few areas of superiority, which for some will make it a better stills tool.  Your argument is the equivalent of saying there's no point buying a BMW over a Subaru because you need a good driver to get it around the track. That's true, but a good driver might choose a BMW for it's better onroad-track specs and be faster because of it.  A better photographer will be able to use a more capable tool more effectively or efficiently, and for some the A7RIV will be a better tool.  We all know this. Sure it's not competitive for video, but for stills it's a pretty nice piece of gear.
