Basically Speed Freak provides a renice Terminal command that allocates more processing power to the foremost application.


Ideally FCP X should be the only app open but I'm sure that many people, like me, have others open as well whilst editing.


So is Speed Freak likely to be useful in those situations, considering that it was developed for OS X 10.4.


I don't know whether the Terminal operations have altered with Leopard, SL or Lion.


The app is free and available from here:-  http://home.comcast.net/~jeff.ulicny/software/utils.html


If you want a virtually identical app that claims to have  been updated for Lion you can try  CPU Speed Accelerator at $39
