Hmm, we haven't changed anything regarding CPU utilization in years, and 2.6.9 isn't a new release. It sounds like your Mac may be having problems with heat - you might have a clogged fan or something similar. Using 400% CPU is right for that mac - your mac has four cpus, each running at 100%.
ClipWrap 2.6.9 overloading my CPU
2.3 GHz Intel Core i7
ClipWrap is annihilating my CPU right now. Converting two 14 minute files from SD card is using over 400% CPU in Activity Monitor.
I've noticed with this update that if I am running any other programs other than a web browser and try to use them, my Mac will just shut off!
I've used ClipWrap for a long time. This never used to be a problem.

Thanks Colin. I'll check my fan. Haven't had any issues with FCPX or Logic, seems I only struggle with ClipWrap.
I love the program. Thanks for your work on it.
