How to increase CPU usage for playblast?
on Feb 22, 2010 at 10:12:26 am

Hi.

I've been trying to understand how to speed up the CPU usage for the playblast option. My computer batch renders at 100%, but playblasts at 10 to 20%. It's very frustrating to know that my playblast could be faster, but it's only using 20% of my CPU usage.

Hopefully someone knows how to fix this problem.

Thanks so much if you do.

There's always something that's causing a bottleneck. When rendering, it's most often the CPU, that's why you see it at 100%. In this case, it happens to be something else, probably your graphics card.

Thanks for responding to my problem with the RAM/CPU usage problem concerning the playblast. So the graphics card, if it is poor quality, than it will not take advantage of 100% CPU usage and only 20% of it? Would you recommend I get a better graphics card?

Thank you,
Sam
