MBP getting very hot

    When using Max to record video (just video and audio, no effects processing or something), my macbook pro gets very hot. Using temperature monitor I see that my CPU cores are getting up to 90 degrees Celsius. Is this normal? I am only using max and safari is running in the background, nothing else.

      Based on personal experience alone, my observation is that video decoding/encoding/recording with pretty much any app is CPU intensive. I also find Max to be one of the more CPU intensive and battery draining apps I use. Put them together and I don't find your experience surprising at all...
