[Matt Callac] "If it's not on. It's still using all of your processors"

that's true for multi-threaded processes in ae, but not all processes are multi-threaded. using the 'render multiple frames simultaneously' option allows you to use multiple cores more often, but as has been noted, there are still exceptions.

it's hard to tell what's breaking the multi-frame rendering or the multi-threaded processes... you'd need to go through a comp layer by layer and doing a test render to find out which layer(s) are causing the issue. then you may even need to go through effect by effect to find out if it is an effect.

there is a thorough list of bundled effects and other things that break multi-frame rendering in the online manual, but i don't know that i've come across a list of processes that would break other multi-threaded processes.
