Hi all, I have been using a pretty new version of vegas (can't remember the version) and I assume it is written to make use of all 4 cores of my cpu. I have one of those windows 7 gadgets running which shows CPU and RAM usage in real time.
I noticed after editing and rendering to a WMV, my processor usage goes way up when it gets into the effects (dissolves, blurs etc).
My question is: My CPU usage tops out in the 80ish % range and I am wondering why it won't go higher? Should it not go to maximum in order to do things the fastest? Is there some limit that windows won't let it exceed or a setting in Vegas that can be turned up?
