Fredrick, these are great, thank you. Two questions: I'm pretty handy with Photoshop, but not sure the best way to create that gradation with a transparent background - I know the grad tool, just not the transparent file type. Secondly, I'm about to pull the trigger on a new iMac, and trying to decide on the best package - any hints (without breaking the bank)? Thanks

Just select "New" under file and create a new .psd file. Make sure "transparent" is selected. Make your graduated tone and save as .psd and you're good to go.

As far as a new iMac and video editing is concerned:

1) I'd make sure to work off of an external USB3 or thunderbolt hard drive(s). On my Mac Pro the only things that reside on the System hard drive are the system, applications and support files. I have 4 other 2TB Hard Drives that I copy my video to and work from. Having your hard drive dedicated to just apps and the system while accessing you footage elsewhere will speed up your processing time. If you computer's hard drive has to run the system, run the applications and access 4K video projects it taxes the system too much causing a slow running machine.

2) Get an SSD drive for your system drive. I did this and the difference is incredible. e.g. Photoshop used to take about 25-30 seconds to boot up, load the interface, load fonts and be ready. With the SSD system hard drive all this now takes about 4.8 seconds.

Thank you, Fredrick. Much information. I've a 1TB SSD drive in my old (present) Mac, don't know if I can transfer it to a new iMac or not. Probably not... But really, thank you - you've contributed great information that's sure to improve many peoples' work.
