How to use EGPU to utilize only the egpu on macbook pro?

I have an egpu I bought from amazon with a 580rx. It has helped me hugely in video editing but I still have issues editing in 4k. I notice it still uses core when rendering, and using warp stabilizer!

I already set- code in terminal to use it but any other advice greatly appreciate it

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.

You need to work in clamshell mode connecting a monitor to the eGPU

Final cut doesn’t use eGPU for live tasks
