I'm trying to limit the max framerate for multiple apps which don't have built-in FPS options. Is there any tool (terminal or app) which can set this?

I've tried searching, but haven't found anything.

I'm running macOS Sierra.

  • Some apps have hidden debug options you can use to yield time, foreground or background, which will also server to limit the fps; even if they don't have a dedicated fps control. [I work on the support team for one such app] You might be better asking the specific app maker.

No, there's no generic mechanism to limit FPS for any app. It is completely up to each app to decide how many times per second it redraws its display.
