What do you mean by "color", colograde an area of a video? If it's that the case you can apply a mask:

Hey Chris, thanks for the info, I have exactly the same configuration, but on system preferences I have CUDA and Nvidia driver configuration options:

You don't have them?

Maybe I should try uninstalling them

Hi Chris! Can you share the nvidia drivers you are using? In my case is not only fcpx, but photoshop running very bad.

nvidia Geforce GT 750M graphic card is not compatible with Mojave, confirmed by apple support. Three months later after its release Nvidia does not seem very interested in giving us a driver. So stay in High Sierra or buy a new macbook. :(

I've jus talked with apple support. They recommended me downgrading to High Sierra because the admit that my graphic card is not compatible with mojave.

Fortunately it seems there is an official path to downgrade:

Mmmmhh, Maybe I should buy a good external graphic card. I cannot afford a new macbook right now and some coleagues told me that they overheat very easily after 15' of intensive tasks and the performance is affected. Can I avoid the nvidia 750M and just use an exteranl one or the system uses both?

Thanks!

Hey Ronny, I've also found fcpx NR very nice and with an organic feel, something that is difficult to accomplish with Neat video. An of course that checking the effect in real time is a big plus also.
But in my case is crashing the rendering and the exported video plays choppy exactly on that clips with NR applied.
I've used Neat video instead, with no problem while rendering or playing smoothly the exported file.
But as you mentioned, many factors could be affecting the performance. I'm using Magic Bullet Mojo II, Luca Visual FX Image Sharpener and color finale on almost all of my clips. Magic Bullet is very slow to render but it never crashes fcpx.
Maybe is something related with NR and the graphic driver (Nvidida GeForce 750M) on Mac Os Mojave. Nvidia panel alerts me that is out of date on every restart, but there is no newer driver available or web drive alternative.

Late 2013 Macbook pro retina here. NR takes a lot of time , much more than Neat Video. The other problem I'm facing is that it crashes fcpx while rendering. I also don't like the sharpening effect. I'm now using Lucas effect sharpening plugin and it's really nice, specially for me coming from photography.

Pablo created a new topic ' videos playing fast' in the forum. 3 years ago

Not sure if it's fcpx related, but all of my videos are playing like 20% faster than normal, on fcpx, quicktime, preview o VLC. No matter where they are located. I've reset fcpx preferences, udpate CUDA driver, update Mac OS Sierra from 10.12.5. to 10.12.6 but the issue remains. Not sure when it has started, but I guess it was 2 days ago.
Any help appreciated

Pablo created a new topic ' Chromatic Plugin performance' in the forum. 3 years ago

I've been using both Color Finale and Chromatic for color grading, but Chromatic seems to need much more time to render than Color finale. I'm using a macbook pro 2,3 ghz late 2013 with 16gb RAM, and 2gb VRAM. Just wondering if this is happening also to others or is just my config. Yesterday I was working with 4k clips and some titles, and the clips that were graded with chromatic took a massive amount of time to render.

Concidering the new macbook pro, which would be the difference between 2gb or 4gb of GPu VRAM on fcpx?
Render, playback, GUI smoothness, titles?

As long as you have your Media and Cache set outside the library I guess this could be the best solution.
