Helicon focus has slowed down.

Post by paitken »

It seems that HF is slower than it used to be. When I look at Task Manager my CPU utilization (I7, 8 cores) is bouncing between around 20% and 70%. Why so low? Also, the main display used to show, graphically, the progress on the depth map, now it does not. Ideas?

Which version of Helicon Focus are you running? Is OpenCL acceleration enabled or disabled?
The live progress of the depth map is controlled by a setting: Preferences - General - Show intermediary results. Turning it OFF usually improves render times.

Please update to the latest version of Helicon Focus - v.7.7.2 - from our website: https://www.heliconsoft.com/software-downloads/ and let us know how it works.
Actually, CPU utilization is not supposed be at its maximum, as you have GPU acceleration enabled.
