    When Rendering 1080p video Photoshop only uses 50% of the processor and 50% of my ram... Normal?


      It is taking 6 - 7 hours to render 2 - 6 minute 1080p videos down to 720p. Granted there are about 10 - 15 layers and a bunch of editing... but when I look at the performance monitor during rendering the intire resources used by my computer is around 45% - 50% for memory, processor, and little to no GPU is this normal?


      It just seems really wierd to me. I have read the Adobe blog and watched the Learning Videos on the website on how to adjust the performance settings and have 90% of the RAM alocated to Photoshop. Any help would be nice or if this is normal that okay as well.


      Thank you in advance.
