Re: GOPRO PLAYER MAC FEATURES NEEDED URGENTLY (Jan 2020)

OK,

 

if i activate the debug Menu the eGPU is used for playing the content! great

 

but when i want to export my movie :

 

ProRes uses only my mac mini internal GPU which is near nothing

if i choose h264 or HEVC boot of the GPUs were not used the complete export uses my CPU

 

is there any chance to push ProRes to use my external Vega64?

 

Thanks!

You can use a utility like gfxCardStatus to switch macOS to use the discrete video card.   This should force everything to use the card you prefer.

Hi, 

 

application does only work with Macbooks, Mac mini is not supported :-(

but i think even when it works on my mini it will not speed up anything

 

i have a feeling that export does not use a GPU at all - it completely exports with the CPU

if i see the Kandao App : it uses full power of my eGPU when it exports stuff
