    Final Cut X HEVC Export Very Slow. How about you?

    Curious about those who have Final Cut X and HEVC export working well on Catalina. What setup are you using? On my system (SMBIOS Mac 1,1 - iGPU disabled) FCX, Quicktime, and Compressor take FOREVER to export clips despite having a 9900K process and Radeon VII graphics card. A 10 second clip...

    Top 3 Laptop models?

    Been reading through the threads about laptops. I saw Rehab's hardware recommendations. But has anyone had consistent success with a particular model number? What would be the top 3 choices? I don't see a buyers guide like there is for desktops. I've built a few Hack's, the latest based on...

    How do I require password when Safari wants to autofill?

    I can't seem to find an answer to this...How do I force Safari to prompt for a password when autofilling websites? I know on Touch ID systems and my iPhone, it asks you for a thumbprint/FaceID. I'm trying to add an extra layer of security in case someone accessed my computer.

    Shiki values for Final Cut Pro and iTunes using new Whatevergreen?

    I'm trying to understand how Shiki is incorporated into the new Whatevergreen kext. After a lot of trial an error, I've learned that iTunes video DRM and Final Cut Pro don't play nice together. I can get one or the other to work but not both at the same time. In other words, I can get...

    EFI doesn't mount after Time Machine Restore but System boots

    Could use some suggestions. I moved to a new SSD drive using Time Machine restore. The system boots fine but I can't access the EFI partition in Clover (old config worked fine). If I run diskutil list, I see it listed as 0xEF 209.7 MB disk1s1. Other drives show as EFI partitions as 'EFI'...

    Can you disable a PCI slot?

    I’m attempting to get two graphics to live in my system at the same time. One is a 1080ti used for Windows VR, the other an AMD RX560 used for Hackintosh (specifically for Final Cut X performance since Nvida doesn’t work well). When I boot using the AMD in PCI slot 1 and Nvidia in slot 2...

    I’m trying to resize my High Sierra HFS partition. Use disk Utilities, click resize...all is good except when it says ‘Complete,’ nothing happened. Partition remained the same. Did some research and they say use your recovery media and resize from the disk utilities there. Tried it, same...

    High Sierra with AMD RX580 and Samsung 4K TV - how do you get 60hz?

    I was finally able to get an AMD RX580 running under High Sierra. I get sound and 4K resolution but I can’t get 60hz refresh rate. I had an Nvidia 1080Ti and could do it with Sierra using a Club3d Display-to-HDMI adapter, SwitchResX, and the clock patch. So I know the hardware is capable. But...

    Thought my 1080 was working fine until I tried to play iTunes video — most files don’t play, just stay black. Anyone else notice? Is HDCP working with these drivers?

    Best High Sierra graphics card setup for 4K 60hz?

    Debating options...Since Pascal is not yet supported in High Sierra, is there another choice that is relatively simple/compatible? For example, could I buy a Radeon card and have it live along side my 1080Ti? Can the 1080 be disabled so that it works in Windows but not Hackintosh with High...

    How is High Sierra at this stage? More compatible, less, about the same?

    Curious the groups experiences with High Sierra so far. Prepping for the switch but wondering if there are any key issues I should consider before changing. Have you had a harder time installing? Easier/same? Nvidia graphics working? Audio, sleep, etc? Stable? Or should I just buy a Mac and...

    Upgrading 6700K to 7700K - any changes need to be made?

    I may upgrade my 6700K to a 7700K to gain a bit more Overclocking performance for some Windows VR games. My Gigabyte motherboard supports it but on my Hackintosh, once the new processor is in, will I need to modify my MacOS installation? Will it break something like iMessage or worst case, do...
