Wirecast Beta 3.2 First Impressions

I did a little testing with beta 3.2 at 1 am EST because I couldn't wait. 4 NDI 720p sources 2 1080p sources. My test with Wirecast is all about CPU usage, I can say with all of those sources stacked I getting 45% -50% CPU usage down from 85% which was unusable. To be fair it's a late 2017 MBP. 

I saw that the Skype issues are still being worked out, that's #1 for me bringing in remote guest, standing by.

The move to Apple Metal for sure has benefits, I also need to confirm if Wirecast is now using eGPULynn Elliott

  • HI George E. Kennedy, Jr , Great to hear you're seeing more efficient CPU usage! We've been working on improving that. 

    Yes, we're still working on the scaling issue with NDI sources (i.e. the Skype issue) - hoping to have something in Beta 2 on that.

    As for eGPU, we may need to configure something to make that work. Were looking into it.
