R15 only rendering on one core?

I'm running R15 Studio on a Mac Pro 2x3ghz Quad Xeon, OS10.7.5
for reasons i cannot figure, when i set the current project rendering, its only using one core and the other 7 are sat doing nothing. I have also setup Team Render on a Mac Mini server (quad i7) and that is also only using 1 core.
I have set the threading to 8 on each copy of C4d, and have switched off the adapt threading option.
The project itself is relative simple. Its one very simple window frame, cloned to make a skyscraper wall, then repeated for 5 more walls. Colouring is simply flat white and grey.
Whats really puzzling me, is that the same scene with a new camera angle races through on all cores and renders in next to no time.
