Syrinscape Fantasy Player - GPU Usage

I want to start by saying I’ve been using Syrinscape for almost a year and I love it! However…

The GPU usage for Fantasy player hangs around 40%, which seems absurd given the lack of 3D anything going on in the UI.

IS there anything I can do about that? I was planning on casting animated backdrops (mp4 or gif, using MPC for playback) to a TV during our sessions, but once I start playing anything in Syrinscape the video stutters until I close the app. The plan was to have the audio using the TV’s sound system, but that might not be viable if I can’t mitigate this issue.
