Apple Mac Studio - M1 Ultra (Performance left on the table?)

It looks like there is a lot of performance left on the table with the M1 Ultra. Granted, it exports significantly faster than the M1 Max, but it looks like the CPU usage is rather low. Just some food for thought with later performance optimizations that you may have in the pike.

The "fast" encoding with the VideoToolbox is still absolutely horrible. A 17 minute clip using the "normal" settings is around 1 minute. The "fast" encoding takes over 8 minutes. I know that this isn't Screenflow's problem, but it is still rather annoying that the M1 Pro/Max/Studio have this issue, but the M1 was able to use the "fast" encoding properly and would execute faster than the "normal" mode.
