This is meant for my girlfriend who is a video editor who really likes Mac OS. So I did this...

How does this work with Premiere CC? Does it work with iGPU acceleration?

Also, in my experience, Premiere likes CUDA more for Mercury acceleration.

Also, you can NATIVELY render ProRes with this setup! Windows Premiere can never render native ProRes at proper broadcast QC passing quality.

Hey sorry I never got back, but to be completely honest I don't have a great idea on how this works with many of the Adobe applications because I built it for my girlfriend at the time and and all I knew was that it was "stupid quick" in her words when rendering out a 3 minute 4K native clip. Also I wanted to use an Nvidia card for this but I made a mistake when I told her that the actual iMac used AMD cards so her apple loving self wouldn't take anything except Vega

Nice build! Helped me settle on some of my own hackintosh components.

Hey, I just want to let you know that if you plan on using that same video card, I had to mess around a lot before I got the OS to accept Vega 64 because it only accepts Vega 56 naturally so keep that in mind. I updated the part list for it so if anyone wanted to use the same parts they would have an easier time.

Appreciate the tip. I had budgeted for a Vega 56 anyway.
