HELP: Final Cut Pro X crashing with 1070 Pascal GPU
I was able to get my 1070 up and running in the latest MacOS 10.12.14, in a Razer Core. Everything is working great, except for Final Cut Pro X (latest version). It crashes immediately upon opening with the following error:
Application Specific Information:
[FFHGRendererInfo initWithLocation:] CGLSetVirtualScreen failed - didn't expect to get here. Investigate why this code ran: [FFHGRendererInfo initWithLocation:] CGLSetVirtualScreen failed: loc=1, ctxt=0x7fda83c36400, err=10008

Has anyone had success with Pascal cards and FCPX? Thanks!
I'll test fcpx and some other accelerated apps later tonight with my 1070 in a thunder3. I'll get back to you.
Launching fcpx, compressor, motion etc went without any problem. Imported media, added correction and saved went very well.
Exporting began good but then slowed down the computer and finally froze it.
Rebooted and it went better after that. But experienced the same effect next time.
Did not have time to a better analysis. The media I used came from a server volume. The export were done to the desktop.
No problems with series 9x0? Pascal drivers are young on macOS...
Have you tried to disable integrated gpu? Maybe following helps: https://egpu.io/forums/builds/late-2013-13-macbook-pro-rx-480-8gb-16gbps-tb2-akitio-node-via-tb3-tb2-adapter-macos-10-12-4/
Thanks for the replies everyone. Will try disabling the igpu and report back.
Everything else is great, getting excellent benchmark stats
No luck. Tried disabling the iGPU, but I can't figure out which bundles correspond to the latest MBPtb's Intel HD 530. The GL, MTL, or VA driver files I'm supposed to remove don't exist for AppleIntelSKL, which I believe is the correct name? Still troubleshooting... thanks all for the help.
@pupkins I would assume the issue you are facing is very similar to the issue that I was experiencing with my setup. I'm not sure if its your iGPU or dGPU files that may be causing the issue. I've checked my extensions folder and have found them in there. Should be the same for your mac.
Also disable "automatic graphics switching" in the power saving preferences and then reboot. so that the dedicated GPU doesn't decide to start up.
So so sorry! I've just checked my script and realised it might've deleted those files (Have fixed it now) If that is the case, click here to download a copy of the driver files along with a script that targets your specific driver files. Please make sure to reboot after doing so.
Wish I could help you more than just leaving a data point for you here in this thread, lol.
I ran the BruceX 5K test in FCPX and did let both FCPX and Compressor to export it it works without problems for me.
Only my personal test failed.
Will test some more later on.
