    CPU utilization when rendering

    illucine Level 1

      I'm currently doing my first HD render and noticed the CPU Usage is way below what it was for SD renders.  Specifically, when I rendered to MPEG2-DVD, the utilization stayed between 90 and 100% and utilized all cores.  Now when I export the same project (same preferences, same hardware) to H.264 Blu-ray, the CPUs only go to 20-30% and 3 cores appear idle.  Is this normal?
