    Dual Processors!?

    Does LW correctly utilize Dual Processors on the MAC?
    Does Saslite use both?

    Im rendering a scene with Saslite, and I get the exact same render times when I set 1, 2, even 8 threads....the CPU monitor shows the 2 cpus being used, but not constantly nor fully, they kinda bounce back and forth...
    anyway is there a setting on the MAC or something that will make it work right?

    thanks!

    A little something i wrote before regarding SMP and Macintosh software development:

    Basically the only people who can 'switch' on SMP support are the software developers and unfortunately they don't seem willing to put the effort in .

    Saslite isn't SMP aware either as far as I am aware this also applies to most of the other Worley plugins and is the very reason I wont invest in any of them and many other plugins.

    Worley advertises as upgrade argument that Sasquatch is multithreaded and Saslite not, obviously they want you spend a lot of money to get decent render times...

    Sas is completely independent from the thread number of LW, it kinda has its own rendering enginge for the fibres.

    Unfortunately Sasquatch (the full version) is not multithreaded for the mac.
    We will have to wait the next major release.
