I have a MacBook Pro Retina 2012 Late It can run the Unreal Engine 4 fine… but not at high resolution mode (High Resolution Capable). In this mode is very lagggg
and I have one big problem is a MAYA 2017 for student version (be ran on macOS Sierra 10.12.5) I can use it for 5 minutes then it shutdown program and delete workspace automatically everything is gone.
Now I think my MacBook doesn’t fit with CG.
I think about which one is the best for getting started with Unreal Engine 4 and creating models between PC or iMac
I interested in CG and I plan to study at CG in the future (Master in Computer Science) if I have a chance.
Today I want to try something for beginning like create objects, models, characters or effects first. then bring all to Unreal Engine 4 for graphics
If I am sure I want to walk in CG way but today I am just a beginner and I do not study in CG program (just only now)
and I have a purchasing power only 1,299$ (maximum and very very very very expensivee for me)
I look at iMac 4k minimum spec with (Radeon Pro 555 with 2GB video memory) that is enough for me?
I look at iMac because it can a installment 0% up to 10 months and aftermarket care is ok and It’s a all-in-one PC with 4k display.
If this iMac is very bad ideas for CG and the Unreal Engine 4 please give me completely informations to buy others such as CPU should be … Ram should be 16GB … graphic device should be Nvdia … or computer brand model 1234 and the rough price
but this should be with me for loooooooonnnnggg at least 5-6 years++
thank you everyone who help me decide
