Final Cut Pro gains extended support for eGPUs on macOS Mojave

If you work with video editing and have a eGPU connected to your Mac, know that the newly launched macOS Mojave brought a very nice novelty to the Final Cut Pro.

As Apple explains in this support article, on Mojave users of Apple’s professional video editing software can enable a new “Prefer External GPU” option (“Prefer External GPU”) when obtaining information from the app. To do this, find it through the Finder in the / Applications / folder, and then press ⌘I.

With this enabled, the FCP will now transfer some graphics processing to the eGPU, improving performance in reproducing projects and working with 3D titles, as well as accelerating the analysis of effects, rendering of timelines and export of complex projects. Users only stand to gain.

In mid-July, Apple launched a new eGPU in partnership with Blackmagic – but, of course, there are other options on the market.
