Rendering and cpu usage
by Diamond Grabovci on Sep 17, 2016 at 10:08:13 pm

Hi guys,

I do some small music videos for audio spectrum on After Effects and render them with BG Renderer i have a Mac Pro that i use for my rendering and a custom build PC that i just build but it’s not using the CPU at all

Mac Pro 8-Core Xeo, 64GB RAM and AMD FirePro D700 6144MB

Mac Pro screenshot:

PC i7-6950X,128GB DDR4 RAM, MSI GTX 970 4G Gaming and Samsung 950 Pro.

When i start to render with my PC it does not matter if i use BG renderer or Media Encoder or from AE without bg renderer the CPU usage just won’t be used more than 12% but RAM is used more than 90% most of the time.

Pc screenshot:

By the way the Mac Pro sometimes uses maybe more than 85% of the CPU while rendering with BG Renderer.

I hope anybody here know’s a solution to this.

Thank you.
