Author Topic: Idle CPU use  (Read 1961 times)

Designer manages to saturate one of my 8 cores while just sitting there:

Why? It's not doing anything.

It's probably busy rendering all your substance library to create the thumbnails. How long it takes depends on how fast your cpu is and how large your library is, but this is only done once for each substance.

Steam says SD has been running on this computer for 65 hours. If it was really rendering thumbnails, I  think it should be completed in that time.

Hmm. I double-checked, and yes apparently we have already a bug report logged for that. That should be fixed in 4.5.

OK, cool then. Thanks. :)
