Unplug in three, two, one. - All right! - Let's do it! - I'm Sam, and we're going to be filming a dancer, and then work in some After Effects to do a bunch of compositing and fun transitions, hopefully, in the amount of time that I have. - I'm Karl. I'm going to be trying to recreate a 90-year-old experimental lens design in CG, and then I'm going to make a cool scene using this lens. - I'm Matt, and I'm going to do some visual effects and also work on coding my iPad app to do some explosions, fire, smoke -- that kind of thing. - So to start, we have raw data from this lens. - Just kind of want to see what this machine is capable of, so I'm going to create a very basic explosion right now. - I want to play with time, and I want to play with scale.
Yes! - We've been unplugged for -- it feels like quite a while now, and no, I'm still at 99 percent, so I'm feeling pretty good. - Let's see what that looks like. Oh, yeah. That's playing back real nice. - Let's go high-res. Oh, yeah. That's a lot of detail. - Just a couple of minutes, we should be able to start rendering through this lens. - I want to do lots of layers, so the pressure's on. So, I'm trying to control myself! - I am in modeling now, building a drone for a fish to fly. - Hopefully this doesn't take too long.
No, it's very fast. - I have, like, 1.5 billion voxels, which, for a laptop -- never mind a desktop -- is insane. - Feels like desktop-class performance. Compared with the M1, there's definitely sort of a noticeable increase, and compared with before that, that's impossible versus possible. - I don't have to now worry about if I'm going to run out of memory, I can just create. The machine will just kind of, like, soak it up and do it. - It's cool, right? So then we can, like, move around you in 3D space.
Ooh! - So now, I'm going to be adding some new features with my iPad app. - I have so many layers. I can't believe that this is still running. - Can I show you something? - Yeah. - I'm doing so much better than I thought I was going to be doing on battery that, like -- - You've got free time? - Sure. Let's add this. - I'm going to create a value that says setBuoyancy and let's run that, make sure it all works. - I keep forgetting that I'm working with 4K footage.
Death to proxies. - Look how fast it is! - That's crazy! - Thirty-eight GPU cores, man. - I'm going to run out of time before I'm going to run out of battery. - OK. We've got a fish, we've got a drone. Let's put it in a scene. - I'm trying to apply one last effect. - I get one shot to get this right. No mistakes. Oh, it's going to be close! - Yeah, that's looking pretty cool. - Wait, why is it still wrong? - - Crap, crap, crap. - Oh.
We've got to render. - Now, I, as a user, can go ahead and have my fire be different colors. ♪ - OK, I think I'm done! - I'm done. - Preview... ...done! - Look how cool that looks. - Yeah. - Karl, get in this! - Oh, yeah! - That was stressful but fun. - Super amazing what we were able to accomplish just on a single charge today. Imagine if we had two charges. ♪ << - The new MacBook Pro is more powerful and capable than ever. The 14-inch model still starts at 1999 and the 16-inch model at 2499, making them an incredible value.
