Apple computers in Hollywood

This is a discussion on Apple computers in Hollywood within the Off-Topic forums, part of the Apple iPad Discussions category; I think it's funny that apple has something like 7% of the market yet 99% of computersin Hollywood productions are Apple. Anyone else notice that?...

    Macs tend to be better for graphic design/CG.
    Multi Tasking projects just works much better with Macs.Windows only take up the size that is needed and dont have to take up the full screen.

    When doing stuff like making a movie there is a lot of moving stuff dragging stuff from one app and dropping in another and the window management is just way better. It make things quicker, easier and less frustrating.


    With windows multi-tasking the user is usually focusing on one app at a time and switch back and forth with the taskbar.

    Macs tend to do multitasking by having all the windows open to the correct size needed and having multiple things open and visible to work with at the same time.

    Can you resize the windows on windows OS's, yes but they tend to not look as great or not display everything like if it was full screen.

    What does that have to do with props in a movie? And you do realize you can resize just about every window in ms windows, right? You can drag and drop anything...

    for props, well macs just look better lol.
    If you could have a flashy/sleek Mac, a clunky PC tower or no name PC what would you choose.
    Design and form factor are one of the added costs of buying a Mac.



    Also if Macs are what they use because there better for the videos production process and graphics why not use one of those, people tend to use things they use often and like.

    I work on movies in Hollywood and I would say it's pretty evenly split between win, mac and Linux. I have a mac pro at home, the studio I'm working with now is mac and windows (3d is windows, 2d is mac).

    I personally prefer mac, but it's far from guaranteed.

    I was watching Transformers with the kids last night and was very aware everytime they used a Mac. Excellent marketing.

    I think you are misreading his post.

    He means when computers are featured as props in movies, they are almost always Macs.

    Not that Macs are used in the movie-making process.

    Agree.... but there still could be a connection. If most are using Mac's in the movie making process, they are more likely to think of a Mac when they need a prop. I used to notice the Mac's all the time in "24", some of it is perhaps paid placement.....

    But in my world, it's PC BABY
