'09 MP CPU usage downconverting XDCAM to DV, is this low?
on Oct 20, 2009 at 4:32:35 pm

I have an '09 dual-core MacPro Nehalem 2.26GHz with 8Mb of Ram installed.
I'm downconverting XDCAM 720p25 PAL footage by placing it into a DV PAL sequence, as suggested here: http://www.kenstone.net/fcp_homepage/ex1_sd_output_young.html.
I have Istat installed and I'm noticing the render from XDCAM to DV is only utilizing 20% of my 16 cpu cores. Is that low?
I was attempting to use compressor earlier for the same purpose, and compressor was only utilizing 15% of my cpus, and was at times more than 90% idle. I adjusted my Qmaster settings to use 8 cores, and started sharing, and also changed the cluster settings in compressor from the default 'this computer' to 'name of my computer'. There was no noticeable improvement.
Is this normal, or should I be adjusting something else?
Thanks,
edward
