Looks like it helps when the CPU is fully utilized. I did a little test with Folding@Home and simple 800x600 frame rendering: FAH running threads off: 40.45 threads on: 25.30 FAH paused threads off: 26.12 threads on: 22.63 And my guess would be that if you were to try a test with threads off, and t...

Yeah

That's what I was thinking... I think it helps it take higher priority over the other system processes. Probably the equivalent of changing the thread priority, but at least this way, it's only during rendering.

Thanks

Well, it's funny, because I was originally considering that, but now, I might actually switch to that instead. I think I'll go with 4GB of dual-channel Corsair memory (I know it sounds like i'm advertising for them or something, but I just really, really, like that brand). Assuming my MB will suppor...

Also...

Also, I was wondering if there is ever any reason at all to select "threads" if you only have a single cpu...

Quad-Core CPU/nVidia SLI tech.

Yeah, I'm saving up for my new pc, and i'm looking at this so far: -Two AMD Athlon 64 bit FX 3.0 GHz processors (dual core), making it Quad Core. -Two nVidia GeForce 7600GTs, SLI'd together. -2GB of fast Corsair memory -and a really good case (with good airflow) and a good power supply Don't know if...

umm...

How about we push for audio period... Once we get that, then we can start asking for surround. Sure, you can sync your video to audio, but right now, blender doesn't support doing anything with the audio itself (i.e. Encoding and muxing into the animation - or whatever its called, my lack of a/v kno...

Well...

I sortof forgot about this thread... apparently the consensus is that it can be done by hand, so noone wants to waste the time coding it. I guess I would rather the developers work on something more important, such as an vector/svg renderer (i wish...), anyways.

Thanks for your thoughts,

Feature Request (Rendering Engine)

I was wondering if it would be possible to speed up the rendering process by not rerendering the exact same frame when nothing is being changed (in an animation). Let me put his a better way: For example, you are rendernig an animation, with the frames as following: Frames 1-10---> Nothing moves, ca...
