    Final Cut X - GPU usage when rendering - 5700 XT

    I completely understand this. The only reason I did try this was because tedyun mentioned that he enabled the IGPU in the BIOS as well as qbe saying that for the best performance use iMacPro1,1 SMBIOS, IGPU only as headless. Sorry for the confusion.

    High Sierra - RX Vega & Final Cut h.264 fix

    Thank you very much for helping. THIS DID WORK and I am now able to export .H264 from final cut. The difference in the render was unbelievably fast.

I will reinstall Win10 this time and also forgo the use of the HFS...
