Render queue only uses 1 cpu-core of 2

during batch-rendering there are always two ks-processes running. one is the "rendering process" (which uses the most memory), and the other coordinates the queue, so I cannot kill the second process.

KS only uses 1 core of my dualcore during batch-rendering, becaus the second keyshot-process uses the other core.

I already changed the realtime-rendertime to 30s but during batch-rendering the second ks-process uses one core permanently.

so batch-rendering is only half as fast!

I have to set the process priority of the keyshot process to "low", then the "batchrendering" keyshot-process gets both cpu's.

This should be fixed in the future I think.


Has this issue already been fixed?

I had no idea of this issue !

Thnx for pointing it out.  In my version of KS2.2 it's still there.


Silly though ... I set KS main program to priority low.  The render window stays at normal.
After the first render is done, the new render window gets priority low as well ... so in fact it's no real help unless you're monitoring it and setting the render window to normal with each new render ...
