h264_videotoolbox did the trick
Two differences from libx264
1 -crf was not a recognized option. I switched it out for an equivalent -v:b [bitrate]. All seems fine
2 -pix_fmt yuv420p was also not a recognized option. Console note says it uses mpeg settings. Doesn’t seen to be a significant issue.
Notes aside it’s a big improvement : h264_videotoolbox in Mac processses at about 4X the speed of libx264
