    should I upgrade my system?

    I am a professional editor working in film and television and I am about to use my own system for an upcoming project.  I have been working "in house" for a number of years and I have not upgraded my home system.  I have a "cheese grater" mac running version 7.  Is there any reason why I should upgrade?  Or will this system be able to handle a feature length show with temp VFX?  I am tempted by the imac pro... any advice appreciated!

    Here is a glimpse of what has changed sicne v8 to 2018.5 today.  

    The only dissue might be speed of the older system with rendering and such....  if MC 7 is working for you and stable....  then I wouldnt mess with it unless you think that the features I have shown you and the speed might be a factor in aiding you on the film.
