- macOS 10.14
How severely does this bug affect you?:
Steps causing the bug to occur:
This is probably an issue with the mac architecture but I thought I would report it anyway.
I noticed performance issues when recording using the "save images to movie" node. In the mac Activity Monitor I can see a process appear called VTEncoderXPCService. This uses 125% CPU or similar. This process opens only when I record to JPG, ProRez etc. I can easily force close this process to zero effect. This makes me think it's a bug. The H264 format doesn't launch this process.
Have you found a workaround?:
If I want to use those formats I can simply force close the process. 4444 records the alpha channel so it's a desirable format.
