Unnecessary idle CPU usage

Unread post by pwnell » 18.06.2017 20:24

Hi Stas,

When I am finished rendering a stack on my macOS Sierra Mac Pro 2013, the CPU usage of Helicon Focus always linger on about 400% on my 6 Core Xeon. Most of this is system CPU usage. I find this strange as the rendering is complete, and while nothing is happening in Helicon Focus the CPU will just continue to run at ~400% for hours afterwards. This stops when Helicon Focus is not the active app for a couple of minutes. Activating thw Helicon Focus window resumes the 400% system CPU usage. See attached CPU usage diagram and a sample I took while it was in that state.

Hi,

We're aware of this problem, it had been fixed some time ago and the fix will go into the upcoming release of the new Helicon Focus version. You can try it out already if you want to: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B_uKr ... DZDaThEblE
