MacBook Pro Diary: M1 Max video editing is a breeze, but everyday use impresses me, too
I said last time that I hadn’t used my new MacBook Pro for anything too taxing in the first couple of days, but I did have the chance to try some M1 Max video editing last night. Nothing extensive – just a short casual video – but it provided my first opportunity to see the machine in action while performing the kind of task it was designed for.
I was very happy indeed with the performance – but actually, the everyday use impresses me just as much.
M1 Max video editing
I recently abseiled from the helipad of London’s Air Ambulance at the Royal London Hospital, and used the Insta360 Go 2 action cam to provide point-of-view footage – review to follow – while my girlfriend used my iPhone 13 Pro Max to provide some ground-based video to intercut. I have been known on previous occasions to zip down at some speed, but the guy belaying the safety rope wasn’t having any of that – still, it let me enjoy the view on the way down!
If you want to see the footage, you can watch it below, and if you feel inclined to throw a few dollars their way, it will be put to very good use – on average, they provide help to five critically injured casualties every day. We live very close to the helipad so see the helicopter come and go multiple times a day.
