Windows 7: Can Pinnacle Studio 15 be made to use more threads

Can Pinnacle Studio 15 be made to use more threads

Does anyone know if there is a way for the user to tweak something in Win 7 Ulimate 64 it so that Pinnacle Studio 15 will use all 12 threads? Or is this restriction something imposed by the code in Studio. I was expecting a a 25% rendering speed improvement by moving from a 4 core intel to a 6 core. Studio 15 used all eight threads in a i7-2600 CPU machines but in the new Xeon 1650v2 (6 core, 12 threads) only uses 6 threads - LESS THAN THE 4 CORE MACHINE, and seems to have no speed advantage at all.

Was my hypotheses all wrong? I thought it would be dependant on the app software but I never thought it would be almost no improvement.

Hello p23185,

You might check to see what the Processor Affinity is set as for the program. Usually it should use all processors by default.
Processor Affinity - Set for Applications
You could also check to see the priority level is for the program. Increasing it can help improve the program's performance. Just be careful, setting it too high could decrease the performance of other items that have a lower priority level.

Hope this helps, :)
