    Multiprocessing taking ages to skip existing frames

    katzkane

      Hello

       

      Just recently got a new system and am new to multiprocessing.

       

      8 cores, 24GB RAM, Windows 64bit Ultimate

       

      Running After Effects CS5.

       

      I am rendering out PSD sequences.

       

      If I turn MP on and give it 5 cores to work with it will take an age to skip existing frames. It skips 5 at a time and takes almost as long as if it were actually rendering the frames freshly.

       

      If I turn MP off then it skips the frames like lightning! But obviously just rendering 1 at a time.

       

      Am i missing some blantantly obvious setting somewhere?

       

      Any help would be much appreciated and this issue has effectively removed the possibility of sleep for me for the next couple of days!!
