Anyone know if OBS has an option to use the eGPU? I don't see my dGPU show up as a rendering option in MacOS but it does show up in Windows bootcamp. I'd rather keep everything running under MacOS tho so I can use AMD for FCPX as well, does anyone know if an eGPU will at least show up as an option since my dGPU doesn't seem to be available or usable?

Pending: Add my system information and expected eGPU configuration to my signature to give context to my posts

Tried recently with my Vega 64 and couldn't get it to work. It would fail immediately after clicking the stream button. Also tried installing the plugin for AMD drivers. Same deal. Running OBS with an Elgato HD 60S is basically unusable for me right now in Windows via Boot Camp as the program completely locks up periodically and subsequently destroys the stream. I'm thinking it's a power or resource issue because my setup should be more than good enough to handle it (2018 15" Macbook Pro with i9 and 32 GB RAM). If anybody has any suggestions, that would be appreciated. Until then, I guess I'll just stream from macOS.

The new RTX cards have a chip that can be used for streaming instead of the CPU and that works well with OBS, I tested it out myself with my 2080 TI. But I don't know about AMD
