    How do you give Final Cut CPU Priority?

    I have a new 8 core 2.8GHz mac pro with Final Cut Studio 2, Leopard and 4 GB Ram.

    The CPUs show they are only using about 20%, is there are a way to boost it?

    Thanks

    FCP itself can only address 2 cores.

    When exporting, you can use Compressor which can use all 8 by using a virtual cluster. But for this to work, you export a reference movie of your timeline and bring that into Compressor (you can't simply Export via Compressor).

    If you run a search in the Mac Pro forum, there is a thread about creating clusters in Qmaster. Creative Cow also had a podcast entry recently that specifically addressed this.
