View Full Version : Shut off fPrime while rendering

Prlby obvious to most, but recently learned that leaving the latest version of fPrime on while LW or Screamernet is rendering can make those renders take twice as long or longer...I have 2 nearly identical G5s, and watching the SN times I was getting were twice as long for one as for the other made me wonder what was sucking all the juice...turned out I'd left fPrime running!

Not a dig against fPrime at all..but it does take a fair amount of CPU power, which is wasted if you don't need it.
