    Final Cut or Premiere to edit. Will downsample to 1080p if wont be viewed on a 4k capable device. I always shoot in 4k though, gives me more pixels to play with and i almost always pull still frames from video rather than switching between video and camera.

    Final Cut Pro on a Hackintosh, half the price gives you the same performance. Don't buy an iMac.

    Forget the imac, i will stick with mac pro... lol... we all have our preferences, and reasons for them. And yes, i have seen final cut pro running nicely on a hackintosh box. Just another option.

    DaVinci Resolve is free, there's a course on Udemy on how to use it.

    I just got FCPX and had a bit of fun messing around with effects and transitions on this clip... I should say this vid was purely for that purpose!!
