I've found that FCP 10.4.7 and Compressor 4.4.5 don't use my eGPU nearly as much as the previous versions.
In 4.4.4 if I recall it was dependent on export format.
Some formats seemed to use both the internal and external gpus and I was getting great export speeds, but in the new versions its topping out around 15% usage.
